Best Advice: Take a PRIVATE or semi-private lesson, don't try and figure it out on your own. About 12 years ago I tried to figure it out on my own. I got very frustrated, hit my head pretty hard, turned my board in for some skis, and never tried it again until this season.
Prior to taking a semi-private lesson with my wife, I watched Beginner Snowboard Lessons
and I caught on to the lesson real quick. The instructor told my wife that I progressed quicker than anyone he's seen before. I tack it all up to learned as much as I could before going on.
