RIP Tom Sims. A true pioneer and "game changer" that helped save the snow sports industry.
I only knew of the overwhelming Sims product domination throughout the 70s and 80s in skateboarding. I still have some Sims wheels.
Sims Conical Wheels. Circa 1980
Sims was all I road (boots, bindings, board, snow pants, and jacket!!!) for the first 8 years snowboarding. So I guess I can say I was a SIMS kid.
