Simpel Session 2011

The time is coming for Simpel Session 2011. Read on for all the info:

It is our great pleasure to announce the 11th coming of Simpel Session, the one true wintertime skate and BMX event that will have everybody in the sport talking for months to come!

Check out our brand new website on, and keep track of all the latest news, fun stuff, offers and additions to the line-up.

The preparations are in full swing, and we are stoked to say the line-up just keeps looking better and better. We have already listed some of our all-time favorite riders and there’s many more to come. In BMX we have the legendary two-time Simpel Session gold medalist Garrett Reynolds, the German rising star Bruno Hoffmann, last years finalist Kevin Kiraly (USA) and bronze medalist Ben Wallace (UK), to name a few. Not to mention all the best Nordic and Baltic BMX street riders that qualified from our Summer Session event in Helsinki. The skate line-up is starting to look neat too – the one and only Canadian pro-skater Chris Haslam has confirmed, as well as our skate champ in 2009, Axel Cruysberghs (BEL), who has healed from his last years accident at SS10 practice, and will be competing this year. There are many surprises to come, so stay tuned and keep an eye on

Simpel Session 11 festival will go down on 5-6th of February 2011 in Tallinn, Estonia, as one of the first highlight events of the Tallinn European Capital of Culture 2011 program. This means the contest will feature several side events this year, beside the infamous party program, such as BMX and skate film screenings and themed photo exhibition, setting off already on the 2nd of February.

Get Perforated.

I’ve been running the perforated INCASE case on my 3G for a while now, and I’m stoked on it. It’s light, sweet looking and has just enough grip without being a bitch to get in and out of your pockets.

Now all you iPhone 4/iPad users can get in on the action too.

Surely you can’t be serious…

Leslie Nielsen has passed away at 84 due to complications with pneumonia.

I grew up with movies like Airplane and Naked Gun, which are both classics in my opinion. This dude definitely makes me laugh.
