I disagree. It's in the shop's best interest for you to keep the board. You can take this as just business...or they're treating you like a kook they think will drop out the sport quickly anyhow. You won't be able to ollie that board or do any of the fun things you should be doing as a beginner. More flex also helps you ride out of botched/sketchy turns as you progress.

TBT is very beginner friendly, but bataleon doesn't sell anything that's low-end "beginner quality".

you did get an awesome deal, but you may be able to also make a profit by selling it (bataleons have a relatively good resale value...although condition is still everything).
