Sims Taperkick 6.75” x 30” (WB 16”) Est Value $300 - $600. Circa early summer 1976, this was the brainchild of Tom Sims (before his snowboard fame). The Taperkick was the “composite” deck of its time. It has a unique lamination using exotic hardwoods with a 3-layer process and deep wheel wells. It was one of the more expensive decks on the market and way ahead of its time. This one is set up with original Bennett Truks w/ Ad Traks and OJ wheels. The current owner/collector (SDO) originally set this up for a buddy while he worked at a skate shop in La Jolla, Calif., then made contact with him some 28 years later and “negotiated” a deal. This board reminds meof carving a snake run at my favorite park. A true classic. Approx. value $300 to $600.
