Demo/Rental LibTech Boards

Anyone know any place in Seattle or the Seattle area where they rent or demo LibTech boards?

I understand that Mt Baker has a few they rent but am lookig for someplace closer.

FWIW looking to try a TRS, T. Rice & Jamie Lynn in the 157-159 size range.

Thanks

But Baker would be a good place to actually ride them

This is true but it is a 3 hour drive from my house and a full tank of gas versus a 1-1/2 hour drive and only half a tank of gas to Crystal or Stevens.

I'm contacting Baker Rentals to see what they have in inventory and will definitely get up there but would like to have the option of renting in town and then picking the resort.

Do the performance rental at the white salmon lodge and you can change out boards all day long to demo a bunch.

get some buds to go and make them pay for gas and beer.

I just emailed the White Salmon rental shop to see what they have in stock and plan on heading up there with my ususal crew and try as many boards as I can.

Would like to have the option to ride elsewhere too.

Thanks for posting that!

Looking to head to Mission this weekend.

Typically how many boards and sizes do they bring?

^^No idea....I'm assuming they'll bring a couple sizes of most of their boards. I've never ridden a Mervin before, too bad they're not doing a demo at Stevens this year....

I've e-mailed Mervin but no reply so far. Might try post elsewhere on this forum to see if anyone else know.

Too bad about Stevens since that is my main hill. Mission should be a good testing ground as I'm assuming all the hybrid/rocker boards are going to be better in powder than my full camber Arbor. There should be eveeything from fresh groomres to icy crud there this weekend, really want to ride a magnatraction board on this to see how they go.

Been reading your review of the BG, love that graphic and it is on my short list to try if they have one.
