Definitely keep it. Most people say it's easier to learn on a softer board than a more rigid one, and that is a higher end board (although it may not have beginners especially in mind). Hell, I learned on a highly directional board backwards cause I had no idea you could turn snowboard bindings around (I knew little to nothing about snowboards then).
Maybe Snowolf or another instructor/expert type person could give a tip on this? Good luck learning and have a great time!
