Default So.. how do demos work?

So I went to Sugar Bowl yesterday and saw tents for union, libtech, burton, K2 etc etc. How does this demo thing work? Do I have to pay to try out gear or put down a deposit? Do I have to register for anything?

I'm curious, as I want a reverse camber board, but I want to try one out before I commit.. I think demoing would help a lot, but I'm not sure how the process works.. Thanks.

Usually just drop off your credit card or drivers license and they hand you a board.

Reverse camber is the shit though. Super awesome for a pow board. Bites hard and stays "afloat" with minimal effort.

I'm guessing I could just drop off my board there for the day? I'm gonna keep a look out next week..

Yep, easy peasy. Really depends on where you are too. At my local hill, the dudes who run the demo days work at the local board shop. So I don't even need to drop anything off. Just grab and go.

All you gotta do is ask. But I can't see it being any more difficult than dropping your CC or license.

hahaha thats really funny cause i was there yesterday trying out all the different boards, basically you give them your credit card info, and you can try out different bindings and boards, it was 10$ for all day plus lift ticket.

They charge for Demos? Or for Rentals of high end equipment?

Demos i consider when all the companies come in and show off their stuff, just give a credit card and ID as stated and go at it..

go to the table, drop a credit card on their ass, pick a board, let the monkey put your bindings on backwards, and then ride off

or if you live in vancouver, you ride your own board because demos dont exist

Yeah, I just called kirkwood's "Demo Center" and they said it costs 50 bucks. I think that might be different from the tents sitting outside. I'll stop by the tents next week and see what's up.
