Default Demo'ing boards UK.

I have an old (bought 2nd hand) F2 Glide 156 board, and have never tried
anything else, but would like to try some other boards especially a more
directional style than mine.

Is there anywhere in the UK where I can demo snowboards? Do manufacturers
have demo days at places like xscape, or do shops like Ellis Brigham do
demos at there Milton Keynes shop?
Also I have intec step in bindings and boots. Would these boots be ok if
using with strap in bindings?

Many thanks

Certainly there was a time when Burton held demo evenings at these places.
Usually on boarder nights. Contact them and ask if they've got anyone
coming in with demo stuff.

They might even have some newish stuff available for "hiring" - even
though it's included in the fee. Or maybe it's still just old tat.

Depends on what kind of step-in's you got.
I've seen systems that are usable in strap bindings without a problem, as
others where you need to unmout the whole system hanging on your boots to be
able just to step in a strap binding.
