The above is only a guideline for the selection of a surfskate. Depending on how and where you want to use it, you may find you don't follow these guidelines.
If you are looking for a Mini Cruiser Surfskate for the city and are bigger than 180cm, you can easily do this with a board under 30".
Or, someone who is lighter and would like to do long carves or to cover more distance can take a longer board.
Always check if the length of the board still suits your normal stance, you should be able to position your feet above the rear truck and slightly behind the front truck.
