No previous board sport experience is required to ride a Onewheel! Onewheel riders range from avid snowboarders, surfers, skaters, to people who have never been on any type of board in their life. If you do have any level of board sport experience, you may feel a more natural click with your Onewheel and be able to ride more confidently.
Like anything else, it takes time and practice to become an expert, but in general, most people claim that they feel comfortable riding it within the first 20 minutes of riding a Onewheel. Half the fun of the sport is practicing and seeing your own ability and confidence grow while riding it until it feels like an extension of your body.
