I had alot of trouble learning to control my edges on a wakeboard
If you can wake and skate, imo snowboarding will "click" for you sooner than later.
The only sports I do are surf skate and snowboard and imo snowboarding has the shortest, however steep and painful learning curve.
Getting out on a softer day can help.
Visualize, there's no reason you can't do this, maybe theres too many mechanics in your head. Its been proven over and again that you can't learn to snowboard on the internet.
