I guess this qualifies as news or an update, well maybe not. Ok moving this to the advice section.
We are going to need your weight, foot size. Obviously a beginner. I would say rent your first time out or two...

Is it safe to assume you've never snowboarded before?

You are correct. I haven't, but I plan to. Can I go straight to snowboarding? My dad thinks I should try skiing first.

Yeah, you can go straight to snowboarding, but rent first, and see if you like it. I noticed that most people who know how to ski, have a MUCH easier time of learning how to snowboard. I don't know why, but just what I noticed.
