What a week in Tallinn, Estonia! @simplesessionwas a blast, the parties were off the hook and to top things off, @FTL BMX and the local Stoned Street Crew threw a sick street jam on the last day. Here are some of the highlights, including Joe Jarvis yelling at people randomly and destroying every spot we went, as well as Filippakos Kosmidis Best Trick banger. Thanks to @Billy Perry and every one involved for a good time. Can't wait for next year!
Simple Session 21 will be back in Tallinn, Estonia, on August 20–21 with a big summertime festival and an all-around good time. This years’ event will be more exclusive as the tickets are limited and the venue will be more intimate and closer to the public than ever – the Simple Session series will host an exciting street contest in the hip up and coming Põhjala district – an old rubber factory turned into a cultural hub. Simple Session 21 will also be one of the first significant international events after the big Olympic debut for BMX and skateboarding in Tokyo. Sixty-four of the finest invited BMX street riders and skateboarders from all around the world will go head to head on a new 600m2 Nate Wessel-designed street course.
“I’m delighted that we can run the event at the youthful and vibrant Põhjala factory, make the Session during Estonian summertime and the riders and viewers will enjoy these sports as they were born. The global health crisis has prevented us from hosting the annual wintertime event, so we are happy now to host the Simple Session during the sunny side of the year,” says Risto Kalmre, the founder of Estonia’s biggest and world-renowned action sports event.
The event kicks off on the day of the Estonian Restoration of Independence on the 20th of August,
