Buy a board and experiment.  Lay the board flat on the beach and learn to snap up !!!!   What I mean buy snapping up is when you catch the wave, and the nose of the board is facing down the slope of the wave, Use your arms to hold the board while the rest of the your strength is used to lift your body up in one steady fast manuever.  In other words, picture doing a Pushup on your board, but as you do, bring your legs under you and snap up to stand on the wave.  You will definetly eat it more then you'll be successful at first. Definetly don't try this in big surf or you will get worked.  But keep at it.  Your Natural Insticts will catch on and you'll be a surfer in no time.

Depending on how tall you are, I suggest starting out on a Longboard.  They have more stability then regular boards. Also , one thing I didn't say before.  Since u are Just beginning, wait tiill a wave crashes first, and practice standing once the white water carry's you.  Get a feel for the power of the ocean first.
