This skateboard film is truly mesmerising, the beauty and serenity of ORDOS makes this one my all time favourite skateboard films. Just watch it and enjoy!

Meant as home for one million people, the Kangbashi district remains nearly empty five years after construction began.

It’s been called the Dubai of northern China, showered with wealth, packed with public infrastructure and located near 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.”
