Sydney’s Surf Sucked, But Vivid Looks Cool

I’m a little slim on info for this video but it came to me from Gabe Roxburgh and I believe it was created because they were there to film surf but the waves sucked … What they turned out is a quick clip of the Vivid festival and it’s a pretty cool watch. There’s no riding in it, just a nice look at the city. Worth a watch.
