Simple Session

As usual, the capital of Estonia - Tallinn, was hosting one of the biggest european skateboard/bmx events of the year, the famous simpleSimple Session. This week, Risto and Mario Kalmre, who have been organising this event since day one, decided to do the event in the second half of March, which should be promising warmer weather, due to the upcoming spring season in Europe. Winter hit Europe pretty strong this year and even during the event, it was way below freezing temperatures (-22celsius / -13fahrenheit). Luckily, everything is located inside the Tallinn ice hockey stadium, so the contest can happen in any weather conditions...
