For the 11th year the brand new and unique course is designed by ramp designer extraordinaire mr Nate Wessel.

 

The SS17 course will make an unique riding experience for the street and ramp skaters and bike riders alike. As has become expected from Simple Sessions the course combines street and park elements to one single huge exclusive course.
