In 1963, in his 7th-grade wood-shop class at Haddonfield Central School in New Jersey, he and John Murray made what they called a "skiboard," combining their two favorite sports, skiing and skateboarding. Sims was the primary snowboarding stunt double for "007" (Roger Moore) in the 1985 James Bond film A View to a Kill, which helped popularize both the snowboard and its usage. Since 2006, the SIMS Snowboards brand has been managed by Collective Licensing International, LLC, a unit of Collective Brands Inc., though Tom Sims was still very active in the company. Tom continued to be personally involved in the design and testing of the new snowboard and skateboard equipment being developed under the SIMS brand until his death.
