Hailing from Oxford England, Tom Penny is a legend in global skateboarding, he transformed the way people viewed good style on a skateboard in the 90's. Tom was instrumental in the domination of English brand, Flip skateboards move to the U.S and their virtual takeover of the skate industry and media. Tom's approach was a simple one, do the near impossible and make it look very easy. It proved to be a winning formula. Tom however, was not concerned with skate fame and moved away from the limelight, much to the skate world's disappointment. Over the years more and more footage of Tom has emerged and he had a video part in Flip's 2010 Extremely Sorry video. A true influential skate legend, his impact on skateboarding in terms of style and approach has never been matched. He is sponsored by Flip, Supra, Ricta, Fury, Active and Kr3w.
