Some contests seem to have just gone past my noticing in the past few years. I do have to admit that i have been looking out for vert and bowl contests more. The Simpel Session contest series has been around for seven years and 2008 will start out with a bang from January 25th through the 27th in Tallinn, Estonia as a long list of the world’s top street skaters (and BMX riders) arrive to show their skills on the brand new contest park especially designed by Nate Wessel and it will be built by Sessionramps. To get the entire story….
The list of skaters at the Simpel Session 08 is getting longer and better every day it seems, the organizers themselves stating that over 24 countries are now represented at the contest, with skaters like Petr Horvat, Ruben Rodrigues, Chris AstrÃ¶m, Sierra Fellers, Peter Ramondettta and loads of other great skaters – just go to the contest website to watch the list grow! Check the park out below and if you can make it, get there…great city to have a lot of fun, get to know the people and watch some good skating. Tallinn has good direct air connections to main European capitals. Direct flights from London, Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, Stockholm etc with companies such as Easyjet, Estonian Air, SAS, KLM, Finnair and many more. Add to that numerous ferries from Helsinki and Stockholm for those who appreciate a good boat trip (believe me, the boat trips are almost worth the trip themselves, crazy!)
The contest will be held in the Saku Arena. It has 7000 seats and a good floor for the event. The address of the Saku Arena is Paldiski mnt 104b, Tallinn.
