“Legend” is a title few skateboarders will ever obtain, but the calm, cool, and carefree Tom Penny did it without really trying. Hailing from Dorchester, England, Tom began popping up in skateboard videos and magazines with tricks that were performed with such ease that people instantly took notice. When Tom hit US shores, he was doing tricks, once thought impossible, with such grace it almost seemed unreal. The attention grew and everyone wanted a piece of Tom Penny, but he was never in it for the fame or the money. Throughout his career he’s quietly lived life on his own terms: skating, disappearing, reappearing, skating again, he’s just the legend we know very little about, but call Tom Penny.
