Agree with the guys, the small board won't be a problem in the beginning, and most likely make it easier as it turns with less effort. Also second the wrist guard advice. I used them many years and was many times glad to have them. Friend of mine gave in snowboarding on her first day - broke her wrist getting off a lift. And add a helmet.
If you don't want/can't take lessons, do you have anyone who's showing you what you should do? Stopping should be among the first lesson to learn
I really thought quicksand was going to be a much bigger issue in my life when I was little
