Default Is my edge affecting my ride?

Hi! I have ~20+ days on my board and I haven't done any maintenance on my edges yet. Let's just say they're not razor sharp anymore. Nothing terrible, I don't hit rails and only hit a handful of rocks going through the trees lately (powder days in SoCal!!) I get the feeling my board is handling a bit "squirrelier" than it did in the past. Is this due to the edges?

a dull edge is going to wash out much more easily than a sharp edge
