Default Tom Sims

I just saw a bunch of stuff about him passing away. Does anyone know what happened?

Whatever it was RIP. Without him we wouldn't be riding.

Dude was a monster. The sideways stance sports are a little less without him. RIP

I remember back in college at CU anyone who snowboarded had a Sims board. Tom did more than anyone else to help get snowboarding off the ground back in the day. Vibes to the family and friends.
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
