Hey, I've been snowboarding for a few years now, but have never really attempted any tricks. I'm pretty sure this is mostly down to fear. I want to learn some tricks that are pretty easy, but also look good.

If you've got any suggestions of good begginer tricks or tips to combat fear it would be much appreciated.

Another concept that is invaluable is the "outside in" method. Quite simply it is learning much of your freestyle moves outside of the park, using natural features as you are free riding. This allows you to dial in your freestyle riding without the pressure and potential hazards of of being in the actual terrain park.
On a sidenote, this is one of the most fun things you can do and is almost another style of riding all together (all-mountain freestyle?). So definitely do as Wolf suggests here and give it a shot. Everything from transitions between cat tracks, side hips, natural moguls or stashes and if your balls and the mountains you ride are epically big enough, dropping over big cornices into steep grades.
One of the best things about going to mountain and learning all the trails is just finding those places hits tend to build up and memorizing them. A couple of side hits, a roller, a transition between cat tracks, some mogus, trees etc. you can have your own terrain park down the entire mountain.
