Tom Sims – Snowboard Legend

Tom Sims, a legend in the snowboarding and skateboarding world passed away on September 12, 2012 at the age of 61. A pioneer within the snowboard industry, Sims was credited with inventing one of the earliest snowboards and also led the charge for half-pipe and freestyle competitions. His company Sims Snowboards designed the first snowboard with metal edges, the first women specific snowboard, and was the first to produce high-backed snowboard bindings. DPS’ roots are ingrained in Design+Roots+Engineering, and extend beyond the realms of skiing. We wanted to pass along our condolences and praise for Sims—an innovator in the snowsports community.
