GoPro cameras are the outdoor enthusiast’s best friend when it comes to capturing those “you had to be there” moments.

In a short, five-minute clip, GoPro’s HERO4 action camera took us back through the year so we could relive the best moments captured on GoPro film.

From the depths of the sea to the tallest of mountain peaks, GoPro was there to document our journey through 2015; and it appears as if the outdoor and action sports community had one hell of a year.

Whether we were swimming with sharks or kayaking down waterfalls, every breathtaking, hilarious and inspiring moment is captured in all of its beautiful high-definition glory thanks to an awesome crew of GoPro enthusiasts who are living life to its fullest.

But it’s not only crazy stunts, gnarly cutbacks and impressive feats of strength that make this GoPro compilation absolutely captivating, but the quieter moments of son and father fishing and surfing together that makes this the perfect five-minute video to remember the epic year of 2015.
