I skated for 9 years before I ever stepped foot on a snowboard, by the end of my first day boarding I was grinding on rails and landing table top jumps (smaller ones...), skating first really helped me out. If you already have the balance concept down you'll be fine, just watch those edges. Hope this helped man...
