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.

There are a couple episodes of Powder and Rails dedicated to him on VICE | United States | The Definitive Guide to Enlightening Information People should watch that.

RIP.

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
Your head will collapse
