You're going through the same learning curve that everyone goes through, whether boarding or skiing or backpacking or mountain-biking or whatever. There are strategies for handling the various issues you're going to run into, and you have to learn those strategies. For instance, I always bring two pairs of gloves and two sets of goggles. One gets too wet, use the other. I have a different strategy for supporting my board with the Flow bindings vs the board with the 390s. You'll get used to a particular way to get on the lift and to get off the lift (which BTW nearly everyone has trouble with).

It sucks, and it makes you want to scream curse words at the top of your lungs. But it'll get better.

Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
