History Lesson: Wee Willi Winkels

Oct. 1, 2020.  Rarely-seen photos of Willi Winkels and the Willi team seen on Biblioboard link here: (also a a few of Alva and Adams on their first Toronto visit circa 1978)

If you are too young to know, Willi was a skate and snowboard innovator who manufactured some of the first laminated decks, and pioneered some of the first snowboards in collaboration with Tom Sims. He had a legendary skate team in the late 1970's that toured all the concrete parks of the day and had a heavy influence around Southern Ontario.

Northwinds brewery released a WWW lager as a tribute to their Collingwood skate brother. Get some!
