your board should prolly be anywhere from your nose or lower anything higher than your nose will be too long, it will be to hard for you to spin with a board past your nose, i have a forum board and i love it its so awesome, but they are pretty expensive

those longboards look like they would be hard to maneuver and stuff, and they dont look that fun either
