Description (Brief)
This is a set of four, Tim Brauch, signature wheels of yellow plastic urethane made by Santa Monica Airlines or SMA. Tim Brauch (1974-1999) began his career in the late 1980s, had his first pro model board by 1992 and established the Este line of shoes and clothing in the mid-1990s. Tim’s career was cut short when he passed away suddenly of cardiac arrest at the age of 25. His family holds the Tim Brauch Memorial Contest each year to celebrate Tim’s love of skateboarding.
