Question matching measurements/type to body

I've been trying to read up on all things that relate to "how to pick the best board for you" and there's just so much to know. Is there a website that I can plug in my height, weight, show size and it'll give me an suggestion for a beginner board to buy?

I'm using my brother's board and binding right now and he's only a bit shorter than me and about the same weight so the board works ok but I want my own gear and those are the last two things I need. Right now I'm looking to buy used but again, really hard to find custom stuff. I'm willing to buy new if it suites me.

Or if there are any experts out there that can make a suggestion here is my info...

I'm 5'7 (~170cm)
~180 lbs
show size 8 (I got Burton MOTO boots already)
beginner looking to do freeriding with the ultimate goal of freecurving


thanks for the help.

Thanks.

Ya I think I screwed up. I put my height in as 3'7 not 5'7. Sorry and thanks.
