Developed and mastered a style so impeccably fluid and effortlessly powerful it is emulated by surfers to this day. After a highly successful career and and three world champion titles Tom withdrew from the pro scene at the height of his career and focused on his other passion-music.
Tom's move away from professional surfing on the world tour allowed him to focus his efforts on another passion-music. His eclectic style-called a combination of "funk and psychedelia" by Rolling Stone-has been embraced not only by the surfing community, but by mainstream music lovers who recognize and appreciate his minimalist approach and raw talent.
