Instagram was not made for crappy social media influencers to pedal worthless powders and make-ups to followers through unapologetic selfies. No it’s best use is by far The Cult of Tom. The Insta fan site that tracks the history, tricks, style, and culture behind the elusive Tom Penny. No skateboarder has ever had the mystery that to this day follows around Penny. Give a read below to find out how and why it exists and then give it a follow.

Sample:
For die-hard fans, Cult of Tom is a long-awaited answer. Pretty much what social media was invented for in the first place. 

Previously unseen footage, hard-to-find video clips and best-of montages are piecing together the legacy of the enigmatic skateboarder who came to America in 1995 and shut down every spot in his path with next-level technical finesse, impeccable trick selection and the most nonchalant, hands-down style in history.

Add to that a sense of mystery – How can anyone go so big without visible effort? Is he hacking the Matrix? Why did he disappear for several years at the height of his fame? – following Tom Penny to this very day. Plus, as opposed to other pros of his era, Penny never cared if anyone filmed his stunts, or where the footage ended up and who saw it.
