The first full day of Simple Session went underway today, and it was an amazing day. Seeing this on hand for the first time it’s really been an amazing experience. This is truly an international competition of the highest caliber. People say it’s the X-Games of Europe, but atleast to me, it’s much different. As it started as a smaller contest, it has this amazing home grown feel to it, that absolutely cannot be replicated. With such an international cast and crew, I’m more inclined to say Simple Session is in a class of it’s own.
Since just about everyone will be inevitably blogging all the ACTION that went down today, I figured I’d take a different approach and show some of the people that are a part of the extended Quintin family. Don’t hate on me for taking iPhone photos… I love it.
Aaron Ross and Gabe Brooks. These guys are both Quintin USA, and I love this photo. No not because it’s such a good photo that you’d never believe it was shot with an iPhone, but because it really highlights their differences and I think it speaks to their riding style.
This was the first time I actually got to meet Willem Van Gansen. He’s a pretty amazing guy, and have you had a chance to check this out yet??? Look for more with Willem, as he’s an absolutely monster of a rider. Quintin Belgium!
Dave Duncan! Yo thanks a ton for the shout outs today…it was MUCH appreciated!
Brecht is our Belgium distributor. That means he drinks good beer on the daily! He’s an amazing gatekeeper to have as part of the Quintin family.
Nickolay is our Russian distributor. He’s been with us for awhile, and it’s always good times with Nickolay. Can’t wait to see your hood, homie!
Tomorrow will be crazier than today, so make sure to check out the live feed right here.

A couple weeks ago, Tommy Blanco took Gabe Brooks out for the day and Gabe filmed way more clips than the average person could get in a day.
There are only a handful of people that can live up to the tagline “BE A G”. Gabe is one of them. Once he got out of the system, Mike Ardelean immediately told us he’s on the team, and that we needed to send him a box of hats. As we’ve gotten to know him over the last year or so, it’s become evident that he has a strong mix of characteristics that allow him to persevere through the worst of times and shine at the best of times. There’s something undeniable about Gabe that we wanted to translate onto a hat. We hope by the powers of osmosis that a part of Gabe is instilled into your psyche.
The Be a G hat is available on our online store and at retailers world wide within the next week.
