It's all about balance. Keep your front foot on the bolts of your trucks when you push with your back foot. Place your back foot on the tail just behind the bolts of your back truck. Your heals should be hanging off the board and use the middle of your feet to put your weight. Keep your shoulders above your feet and use your waist and arms to keep your balance. Stretch, drink lots of water, eat healthy, and get used to pushing and turning. If you have a skatepark near by I would go early in the morning to practice at your own pace. Keep your knees and legs as relaxed as possible. Ride as much as you can. Get comfortable skating before you try tricks. As soon as you get that then you can start to develop your bag of tricks.

No problem. Good luck!! I started when I was 4 and it's still my favorite thing to do at 36. Give it time. If you like it you will progress.

One of the tricks is Ollie, which is attained with a snap of the tail and sliding your front-foot forward to reach a desired altitude. The second trick is the aerial, which involves floating in the air using a hand to hold your board on the feet. Check for more tricks on, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skateboarding_trick.
