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.

Heart attack : http://www.yobeat.com/2012/09/13/rip-tom-sims/

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.
