I have the exact same board and same problem. I think in my case it's that I'm just not good enough yet. I get to go boarding maybe 5-10 times a year, so my total lifetime now is about 9 or 10 times I think....though it feels like a lot more. The board seems a bit stiff, but it's really worked well for me in the park and on the slopes. I just need to work on my quick turn abilities.
