Scott Bourne #7.

Ulan Bator, the capital city of Mongolia.

Scott had a full part in Pontus Alv's Strongest of the Strange video from 2005. It consisted of a lot of SF street action as well as hitting up spots in Europe. This loop in the cradle is in the video. There is also footage from a trip to Mongolia with Pontus and a couple other skaters. That's an unusual destination for skateboarding, but the crew found a few things to ride on. I want to say that Strongest of the Strange was about the last of the skateboarding we saw from Scott, as he moved on to become a writer soon after. I might be wrong on that.

I own his novel "A Room With No Windows"
An did enjoy reading it.
I was a fan of his after seeing him skate at a Fitchburg MA demo in 99

I remember when I ordered it. It said it was going to take like 6months to revive it. But It arrived much sooner.
