Red face carving board

I'm a newbie in snowboarding.. and its just been my birthday and my friends bought me a snowboard. after checking the internet i found out its a carving board.. the one with the front side a bit longer than the back side. Now i am starting sb lessons and I want your input about the board. I heard it's harder to learn on this board but IS IT POSSIBLE?? what's your take on this

What kind of board is it mind me asking?

To answer your question it is easily possible to learn on this board unless its a burton fish or something ha. You shouldn't have any problems at all and I doubt you'll hardly tell a difference. Also, what type of snow are you riding on?

snowboards are usually supposed to be like this. when both sides are equal(twin tipped), you usually are a freestyle(riding park,rails,jumps,tricks,etc) rider since you can ride forward and back(switch).im pretty sure, if anything, its easier to learn on YOUR board because it'll be easier to turn for a beginner.

unless its a hardcore alpine board then its fine, and probably just as common if not more common then twins..

digging deeper and deeper I think my board is a boardercross.. and no it's not a hardcore (the one where the feet are on a oblique position on the board is the hardcore, right?)

You'll be faster just standing there than anyone else at your lesson I'm sure.
