Fellow Jammers have recommended several epic instagram accounts that were not on my radar, and I’m curious to know whether there are other gems I am missing out on. What are your top recommendations for surf-centric instagram accounts?

Proposed, non-exhaustive, categories could include: 1) shapers, 2) alternative surfers (i.e. non-competitors/“non-mainstream” - let’s say, Jam-vibe surf peeps), 3) vintage boards, 4) surf memorabilia/culture/history, 5) ocean/waves/environment, 6) your account/fellow Jammers you recommend, 7) weirdest/most random accounts (kind of scared to see what will come up…)

Here are a few of mine: favorite shaper has been Ryan Lovelace (for the insight he shares on board-building), favorite surfer has been Torren Martyn (for the surf trip pics), vintage boards is obviously Shred Sledz, memorabilia has been "Longboarder" for the vintage surf gems, and pro photographer Lloyd Meudell for his stunning waves photos.

I pretty much unfollowed every surf account I used to enjoy. They inevitably always go towards a bent of having an opinion on how we should then live and not staying on the topic at hand. I don't wanna listen to a surfer's opinion on world events anymore than I wanna listen to a badminton player's view on gender equality or lack thereof. I follow two who do not do this and have long enough to know they never will. Follow @miscreant .....no bullshit and great photos of stoke.
