Here's a dude noboard shredding on a Winerstick swallowtail in 1977. I love the jeans and the gaiters with the matching rucksack (and the Richard Simmons hair!).

I remember being about eight years old (1980) and getting to the top of a lift in either mammoth or June and saw a snowboarder strapping into a board to drop in just out of bounds. Asking my dad, "what is THAT?" Years later, saw a picture of Tom Sims and thought, that guy looks familiar…

Thanks for sharing.

Cool. Let's hear some history? I've been around forever but don't know who or where this is from. Looks fun
