Skateboarding in China: Grinding Ordos the Mongolian Ghost Town

In this video, director Charles Lanceplaine follows a group of skaters looking to try their tricks in a new and different environment… Ordos …only to discover a glittering, modern city devoid of human occupants. [quote: The Atlantic]

Skating ORDOS

China’s city of Ordos was built for 1 million people and is currently inhabited by just a few thousand. It’s been called the Dubai of northern China, showered with wealth, packed with public infrastructure and located near to precious natural resources in a region plagued by water-supply troubles.

Ordos is a ghost town located in Inner Mongolia. Seeing the potential of this city in terms of spots we decided to organize a skate trip and be the first ones to skate such a surreal place.

Skate vs Chill a Video Mockumentary

WTF was that? Well technically it was this:

A Skit from Chill Magzine based on the Brazilian “Ilha das Flores” (Isle of flowers).

I know that doesn’t help it make any more sense, but now, at least you know.

I’ m not sure  if its the porno sounds, the hot chick faces or the funny accent but I can’t stop watching this video. Can you just imagine how cool that world would be… beer, babes and boards 24/7. Of course if your imagining it, you get to keep the announcer and the babes, oh what a life.

Best Skateboard Tricks Ever and Then Some!

Best Skateboard Trick Ever

What is the best skateboarding trick ever? Nobody can really say, but many have tried. Nothing gets a better chance at picking the best than an epic video mashup. Except maybe a powerhouse triple stack of them.
