The long-awaited full length from SIMS is here and it sure does deliver! It's been a crowded release year, and I know some are feeling some film fatigue, but this ain't the one to bow out on. Killer footage from one of the most eccentric and exciting (IMO) teams in boarding, and another great soundtrack and edit from Brock.
Words from Hilary Sims and Blair Habenicht below
Tom Sims was the original OG of modern day snowboarding. In 1963, Tom told his 7th grade woodshop teacher that he'd like to build a skateboard for the snow as his class project. Tom and friends would sneak onto the snow-filled fairways of the neighboring country club in Haddonfield, New Jersey and take as many runs as possible on Tom's "Skiboard" before expectedly getting the boot. In 1972, at age 22, Tom moved cross-country to Santa Barbara, California, looking to live out his dreams of surfing and skating all year long, and to continue refining and testing his "Skiboard" designs. From winning world championships in skateboard and snowboard events, to knocking down doors at ski resorts and convincing them to let snowboarders onto the lifts, to building the world's first half-pipe for a snowboard competition in 1983, Tom was a visionary, inventor, athlete, and a rad pioneer of sliding sideways. Thanks Tom!
