Dave and I recently had an amazing time at Interlude, a three-day gathering of snowboard brands, shops, and riders in Northern Utah. We rode with pros, talked board design with founders, and did a lap on a whole bunch of boards. The conditions were pretty rough; the demo went down right before a huge system came through Utah, but that didn't stop us from being able to get a feel for a bunch of boards and how they compare to each other. 

I have a lot to share from the experience, but we'll start here with six things I learned by riding so many boards back to back. If you ever get a chance to do a demo like this, you should!
