Year 2000, when studded belts, frosted tips, and nu-metal were a thing. Some would say “good riddance”, the Simple Session team would say “history was made.” 🐣⠀
A group of friends (brothers Mario Kalmre, Risto Kalmre, Piret Kull, Pent Talvet, and Timo Toots and friends) decided to organize a street culture festival in Tartu, Estonia – the Pepsi Street Challenge, to celebrate the freshly opened Simple Skatepark. Guess where the competition later got its name from and you might win a follow from us!⠀
It was an exceptionally warm and sunny 27th of September and the competition was wild and already an international one – Finnish skaters, Latvian BMX legends that left a remarkable impression on the local scene. Besides the now typical BMX and skateboarding disciplines, there were also inline skating, BMX Vert and Dirt. Crazy afterparty went down in TsinkPlekkPang. Memories were made and the Estonian scene forever changed.
