Saw your other post, thought I'd wait & see if you were going to check in here! I don't know of any shops in the metro or surrounding area that rent or demo boards! I was interested in finding something like that myself, but no luck.
Leo, Dave, or Sabatoa might have more info on that possibility than I do as I'm still pretty new & learning the sport.
I did hear from the Burton rep @ the (small promo) Boyne Demo Day this weekend that in Feb They will be having a Huge Demo day. I think it's called Feb. SnowFest or some such. More Reps to attend and Burton will have a LOT more boards there than they did at this one. Best bet is to call or check their web site! (Boyne's & maybe Burton's.)
You do any riding local? Pine Knob, Mt. Holly, Alpine, etc?
