Rest In Peace Tommy

Tommy Brunner
In late April, 2006, In the mountains of British Columbia, Tommy Brunner, An experienced all-mountain rider and big brother of snowboarding's extended family was taken from us by an avalanche.

His death is a great loss to snowboarding but more importantly to his family and friends. He was greatly respected not only for his mastery of the sport but also because he belonged to the small group of human beings who are unqusetionably real and true. To cross his path was an enlightening experience that would without exception revitalise ones belief in the goodness of ones fellow man.

We have all lost a friend, a role model and a brother.
