When presented with the concept of skating in St. Petersburg during Roark’s sojourn to the East, Jamie pointed out that there was a lot of marble and concrete.

There’s no level of protection to thwart winters attack. But as usual, Jamie persevered - defeating the weather and warming the hearts of the local skateboarding scene.
