I ride with some local guys one of whom is a beginner rider and was previously riding a Hyperlite Era board and progressing quite well. Just last month he decided to purchase a CWB DB9 due to it having good pop and figured it would make him ride better.

Fast forward to past couple weeks and he's been riding worse and not been able to get the edging down on the new deck. He ends every ride pissed off but won't just go back to his old Era because he see's it as "admitting defeat".

When I started riding I went from a beginner board, to intermediate, to my ss recoil. I told him he should do the same but is dead set on this board improving his riding when it's clear it is hindering is progression.

Anyone else encounter beginners believing an advanced board will help them get better?
