Jet Powerboat ride at Xcaret, Playa del Carmen, Mexico filmed on GoPro Hero 3+ Black in 1080p
Head mounted to start with and then hand held after nearly losing the camera, hence viewing angle change!
180s, 360s, deep dives and full submersion. An awesome ride for about 30 mins made all the crazier by our skipper and navigator!!!
