Default Should I upgrade my board/bindings/boots?

Hi guys. I'm a new snowboarder, but I have ski-ed before and I think skiing has helped me pick up snowboarding quickly. I'm also eager to improve and plan to snowboard every Saturday for the rest of this season. So after a total of 8 hours over 2 Saturdays, I feel somewhat comfortable on a snowboard. I'm still falling sometimes, but I think, I'll be very comfortable after another 4-8 hours.

Right now, I have new equipment: 2011 Ride Agenda (new), 2013 Burton Freestyle bindings, and Thirty Two Summit boots. This gear set is for beginners, and I just bought this stuff about a week ago at Sports Chalet. Should I return this stuff, and upgrade to stiffer/longer gear (considering that I'm eager to improve and will be snowboarding a lot, and already feel somewhat comfortable after a total of 8 hours)?
