Well I know that it took me longer to learn how to ski than to snowboard. I feel like the balance required for skiing and snowboarding is similar. I just know that after my 2nd day riding on a snowboard, I felt somewhat comfortable. Maybe I'm overconfident, but I feel like I'll learn quickly, so that's why I asked whether or not I should upgrade my equipment after only 2 days of riding.

IMHO after only 8 hours i'd save save your money until you know what you like to ride. Assuming your kit fits well, its more than capable for the time being.

But hey, its not my money

Also, longer/stiffer boards are not always an upgrade. A shorter/flexy board will help you improve better since those boards are easier to control. A high-end freeride board will hurt your progression, not help it.
Wouldn't having a long/stiffer board make me a better rider? Sure, it would take me longer to learn as a beginner, but wouldn't it make me learn how to be precise with my control?
