What’s up Hong Kong?

The thrill-seeking hooligans known as On the Roofs went up to the top of a skyscraper in Hong Kong to take a pictures and make a massive shout out. We’re not sure if it’s staged or not, but either way it’s fun to watch.

My Life vs. GoPro

Unless you have the balls to wear a wingsuit, you may never get your wish to soar like an eagle. Here’s the next best thing – a video shot from the POV of a golden eagle as it flies over the Altai Mountains of Mongolia.

Race the Tube

Race the Tube

Watch James Heptonstall race against a subway train, at least for a short while. He gets off at a London Tube station then runs like a madman to the train’s next stop about 1260ft. away. Will he get there on time? One more here.

Run, Walter, RUN!

With the release of GoPro’s pet mounts, we’re bound to see many more dog POV videos, but they’ll be hard pressed to top this epic 36 second video of Walter, a labrador who loves swimming in the sea more than just about anything else.

Alpine Stunt Flying

Alpine Stunt Flying

Red Bull Air Force stunt pilot Hannes Arch knows how to make an entrance, taking off for his daredevil flight through the Austrian Alps from one of its awe-inspiring highways. The flying after he gets off the ground ain’t bad either.

Narrow Canyon Jet Skiing

Narrow Canyon Jet Skiing

GoPro footage captured by Christian Yellott as he winds his way through Mountain Sheep Canyon at Arizona’s Lake Powell. While he does slow down a little bit in the narrowest parts, it’s still a crazy place to take a jet ski.

F16 over Greenland

F16 over Greenland

A strangely relaxing POV video captured from the cockpit of an F16 fighter jet as it does low-level runs over the diverse and beautiful terrain of Greenland. We’re pretty sure that without the music it would be more intense.

A Day in the Life of a Pizza Tool

A Day in the Life of a Pizza Tool

…aka the best pizza ad of all time. YouTuber haberdashery12 put a GoPro to the pair of tongs that he uses to remove pizzas and other pies where he works. Pizza chains are going to see a spike in orders in the next couple of weeks.

Benji Brand won the GoPro of the World for June with this unreal footage of him riding through long wave after long wave off the coast of Skeleton Bay in Namibia. You can watch the original video here.

Jos Goodyear Doune Hillclimb

Jos Goodyear Doune Hillclimb

White knuckle footage of hillclimb racer Jos Goodyear going up the narrow roads of Doune on his 400hp GWR Raptor. As if that wasn’t crazy enough, apparently his 35.05s lap time was “only” second best at the event. Skip to 1:30.

Car Wheel POV

Car Wheel POV

By sticking his GoPro to the wheel of his car (using duct tape!) University of Wisconsin student Ryan Fox captured the dizzying life from the perspective of a spinning car wheel. Jane, stop this crazy thing!

KJ Nakanelua: Raw Run

KJ Nakanelua: Raw Run

To promote Arbor Skateboards, KJ Nakanelua takes us on a downhill run through Hawaii at a pace that we’d have trouble keeping up with in a car. Kudos to chase cam operator Nate Shute for capturing the action so flawlessly.

Russian Swing Diving

Russian Swing Diving

Gavin Peacock of FlippedSociety made his own Russian swing and used it as a diving board. Unlike most swings, the device has steel bars instead of ropes and is often used by circus performers to pull off high acrobatic jumps.

Low-Level Fighter Training

Fly along with a U.S. Navy pilot in an F/A-18F Super Hornet for some dizzying POV footage as his fighter jet conducts a low-altitude training run, starting over the Pacific Ocean then flying over Northern California and Oregon.

(NSFW: Language, Gore) In 1998, 22-year old Deputy Kyle Dinkheller pulled a man over for speeding. Benjamin Arfmann made this reenactment not to titillate but to remind us of the dangers of being a law enforcement officer.

POV and on board clips from Polish Air Force pilots in MiG-29 fighters. Watch them practice formations, engage in mock dogfights and even fire a missile. The song is The Glitch Mob’s We Can Make the World Stop. Part 1 here.

Pikes Peak Bumpercam

Pikes Peak Bumpercam

Experience the Pikes Peak hillclimb from a unique perspective – from the bumper of Greg Tracy’s rocketship fast 603hp all-electric Mitsubishi MiEV Evolution III. We’re assuming the siren is to warn spectators because the car is silent.

Subaru WRX STI: Flat Out

Subaru WRX STI: Flat Out

In-car POV footage from driver Mark Higgins’ recent record-setting 19 minute, 15 second lap of the Isle of Man TT course, driven in a 2015 Subaru WRX STI. All we can say is that this guy has balls of steel – and his car ain’t bad either.
