im pretty sure i cant demo any boards here in new york. if i can i have no idea where to go
It's not easy to demo boards in the NE.
A number of mountain do have demo days though, you have to keep an eye on their web sites for announcements.
I caught a couple demo days at Mt Snow, VT for example.
Stowe (also in VT) has a permanent demo / rental center but it's 100% Burton.
