I was sad to learn of Tom Sims recent death. One of the true innovators in the world of us boarders. His skate products were always on my wish list but I never got to own a Taperkick deck or a set of Pure Juice wheels. He really pushed the limits on long equipment as you can see above. It takes a leap of imagination to do the same thing down a mountainside on a board without wheels but he made it catch on.
