Best GoPro Videos Shot Around Cape Town

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.

To honour the creativity of the entire GoPro community and the photogenic spirit of our dear seaside metropolis, we’ve scoured the best and most awesome cams and HD shots, including the best action sports clips that the web has to offer, to bring you some ultimate footage you can’t afford to miss.

If you like what you see, don’t forget to share these epic videos with your friends to show the world how awesome Cape Town is. It’s our city and we love bragging to everyone else, so use Facebook, Twitter and more to spread the word!
