I'm gonna bet they go in the trash. Clothing companies throw out their old merchandise too. Anything that doesn't get sold in the sale gets chucked. It's cheaper to toss things than to ship to say a third world country. I reckon snowboards wouldn't be of much use there anyway, but when you're talking about clothes, it's a crying shame.

I dont mind getting those new boards that are few years old for a cheaper price since I am still a beginner.
Does anyone know where I can find those older model boards?

I find one thing quite hillarious on the ad from the 1998 Burton: "Discontinued Colors!"

I've seen some guys selling old stock on Ebay. They try to distance themselves from the companies so their retailers don't get annoyed, but it is pretty clear by the stock they have that they are reps.

Where do all the un-bummed threads go? 

Oh wait, they don't go anywhere because trusnow's search engine was made in the 1970's

Interesting question.. Funny Ive never even thought about something like this.
Some posts dont really make sense though.. Pretty sure shops cant pretend the old models are new models and sell them at a high price because obviously theyd have different graphics on them Confused
