Should I get a beginners board or keep my "intermediate" board?
On a whim I got an Atomic Alibi a while back at a ski/board swap (completely new setup for not much money). During that first year I took some lessons and went out on my own, but school and life got in the way and I really didn't ride much. I was able to link turns and stop pretty decently but wasn't doing much more than rocking the bunny hills. I'm pumped for this winter because I have the time and money to spend my nights and weekends at the surrounding mountains, so I've been reading/watching just about everything I can about snowboarding which lead me to read up on the board that I planned on using (the Atomic Alibi mentioned above). Most review sites seemed to talk about it as an Intermediate/Advanced board that wasn't particularly forgiving to beginners.
My big question is whether I should get a more forgiving used board like a Burton Clash (or something of that ilk), or if I should keep with what I've got? I don't want to be a newbie who blames his gear for his own shortcomings, but I don't really have anything to compare the "feel" of my board to.
