    Thank you for the review, can’t wait to try it! What would be the cons? How about the stiffness between the bindings and dampness? How does it handle uneven and chewed up terrain that we often see on resorts? What would you advise Never Summer to tweak for the 2018/2019 model year?

      Uneven chewed up terrain is laughable to this board. Point it and go. The board is a little on the wideside for my personal daily driver if I was a resort rider. Other than that it’s a rad board that just about everyone will surely love. Especially the carving, powder crowd. Change for 18/19 the graphics 🙂

    I walked into the demo shop there at Grand Targhee last week and was excited to see a big stack of Insta/Gators. I really wanted to ride one but they wouldn’t let me. I was told that this big stack
    of demo boards sitting in the demo shop is there for employees only. I had cash and was ready to buy one but there’s no way I’ll drop $520 without riding one first. If you want to sell these snowboards you should consider telling the resorts to let people who actually buy them try them out. My money stayed in my wallet.

      weird? I will reach out to NS and let them know.

        I would bet those were Tims personal boards he loaned to the shop employee and they weren’t sure they could demo them out. Have the shop manager Brett ask Tim if he can demo those to customers. I bet it would be fine.
