Skating Ordos

Ordos is a strange anomaly of a city, built to house a million residents, its a purpose built modern city with impeccable infrastructure set against the beautiful backdrop of Inner Mongolia. But only 28,000 currently inhabit this mostly abandoned city after it failed the attract the boom of residents it was intended for.

Skaters Jay Meador, Gustav Nymans, Tommy Zhao, Alexander Hwang, James Capps, Elliott Zelinskas, and Brian Dolle traveled to the city in China aiming to be the first to skate it and document their adventures there.
What they found was an urban landscape just begging to be torn up.
