During his stay in Estonia, Austin tried many new things, including swapping his wheels for a pair of ice skates and facing off in a hockey match. The special game featured some of the world's best BMX riders and skateboarders from Simple Session, and commemorated Estonia's very special centenary! Austin made his team proud by scoring a goal, and everyone enjoyed birthday cake on the Tallinn Old Town rink afterward. After leaving Tallinn, he tried real Estonian smoke sauna, spotted a moose in the forest and traversed an abandoned prison.


Day one

As an initiation into Estonian life, Austin and his friends tried the traditional smoke sauna, part of UNESCO’s list of Intangible Cultural Heritage. They even completed the task with a brave plunge into a frozen lake!

Day two

The second day was mainly spent on wheels; the morning began with a wild ATV/quad safari through the snowy forest of Jõeküla before continuing at Rummu, an abandoned prison and quarry. Here, Austin and the team explored the ruins with off-road fat bikes.
