Default Advice if starting from scratch with skateboarding?

I'm thinking of taking up skateboarding or longboarding casually during the non-snowboarding season. I've been doing the balance beam per the SA videos, but I think that's only going to be good for this year.

Anyway, I'm a total noob -- actually not even a noob yet, as a noob has at least tried it. I'm not interested in downhilling, just some casual screwing around. Don't know if that rules a longboard out right away. I'm not asking for a how-to or total handholding, just some general advice. Brands to really avoid, or tech to really avoid, or new tech coming in to look for so I'm not obsolete before I start, or beginner mistakes that always screw people up. Basic stuff. Any help appreciated.
