Australia seems to be somewhat of a hotbed for skateboarding right now.
Sydney in particular seems to have host of spots that makes us want to withdraw our life-savings and catch the next available flight over.

In the age of raw “anything goes” video aesthetics, it’s refreshing to see such a tightly polished edit which doesn’t rely on slow motion to achieve a ‘Wow factor’. Filmers Leigh Bolton & Joel Lumbroso do an immense job in choreographing the clip together accompanied by a hypnotic drum score by Buttonpushers.
