    I remember watching Tom surf In Ocean City. I was a year behind him in H.S. I thought he was so cool and so cute. Unfortunately, back then girls didn’t surf or I would have been right there with Tom and his friends.

    Memories of Tom riding a uni-cycle to Haddonfield MHS brings back laughs!
    Tom was always a leader – never a follower and now he can reach out and touch the Face of God!
    My thoughts and condolences to family and friends.
    Rest in Peace Tom.

    My thoughts are with Tom Sims’ relatives and friends. The Sims’ trademark meant quality, innovation and style. The brand helped lift skateboarding several notches style-wise. I still own a couple of delicious wooden decks from the seventies.

    Tom helped popularize not only skating, but the other big gravity sport, snowboarding. Here, his innovation shone. Every skate mag back then had at least one picture of someone ripping on a Sims snowboard.

    Rest in peace. A true legend has left us.

    A sad day for the skateboard and snowboard community.
    Tom was an innovator to both sports.
    He will be missed!!!!
