Check out 10 epic action and extreme sports GoPro videos filmed in the Mother City
Cape Town is one of the most exciting places in the world for GoPro enthusiasts because of its incredible natural landscape, legendary parties, wild festivals and awesome action adventure culture. Both peeps who live here and those just visiting are constantly creating epic memories to include in the self-shot movement, flooding the web with Mother City-based videos.
Extreme sports enthusiasts, in particular, are fanatical about GoPro because they can finally capture and share the sick action of riding a gnarly wave, reaching a speed of 250kph on their superkart or kloofing down a legendary 20-m cliff without having to rely on a steadfast mate videoing from the sidelines.
