When to upgrade?
So I have been boarding for about 25-30 hours total. I can go down blacks some with moguls. I go down the hills typically with dynamic skidded turns. I am riding a Burton Clash. I am noticing that I can't hold my edge very well on steep terrain. And I sometimes catch an edge when riding flat or getting lazy. You could say I am still a beginner maybe close to intermediate. After tracking my speeds on my android app I have a sustained speed of about 25mph and high speeds of 35 mph. I don't ride in the park and I am east coast so there is no powder.
Money isn't an issue. But I want to know is it too early for me to upgrade?
I have been doing research and it sounds like a freeride/all mountain would be good? Or is it too early for me to be upgrading to that stiff of a board?
The snowboard shops in my area the people just seem to BS and try to sell me the boards they have on hand so I need some professional(unbiased) advice.
