Here is a good look at the Simple Session 2018 course. Billy Perry and myself were fortunate enough to have some time on the course to ourselves. Trying to film during practice was almost impossible and deadly with all of the riders going non stop. Huge shout out to Risto and all of the staff for being awesome. New video drops tomorrow at 3pm EST as I travel back to the states. Make sure to checkout the video Billy will be posting as well!
Simple session practice day 1 & 2 was insane! Sorry for the lack of uploads, we've been going non stop out here since Simple Session started. I haven't had the time to sit down and edit so I'm a bit set back. Enjoy this video and get a good look at what to expect in finals. Also we visited the "Spot of Tallinn skatepark" which was dope!
