 Tom Sims, the founder of Sims Skateboards and World Champion skateboarder, passed away recently 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, continued through the 80s and early 90s with pros like Christian Hosoi, Lester Kasai, Eric Nash and Jeff Phillips, and eventually crossed over with much success into snowboarding, helping to develop the activity through product innovation, riding, and promotion.
