R.I.P Tom Sims

Posted on 09/18/12

Tom Sims, the founder of Sims Skateboards and World Champion skateboarder, passed away last week from an apparent heart attack. He was 62.
The Sims brand was one of the most respected through skateboarding’s early racing and park skating era.
It continued through the 80s and early 90s with pros like Christian Hosoi, Lester Kasai, and Jeff Phillips, and eventually crossed over with much success into snowboarding, helping to develop the activity through product innovation, riding, and promotion.
R.I.P. Mr Sims. Skateboarding will miss you immensely.
