Surfers: Using Social Media to your Advantage

In a world where even what we have for breakfast is shared on Social Media, an increasing number of people are joining the amateur photography movement in order to share their day to day lives.

Whilst the majority of Instagram users only post selfies, snaps of their meals and various views from throughout their day, for example, the morning commute, there is a new breed of social media “stars” who dedicate all of their posts to extreme sports.

Most people are unaware, but being smart about your social media, could open a lot of doors for you. If you’re into photography, film and most importantly social media – you could easily start to see great advantages of having a big following on social media platforms.

For example, once you have a specific number of followers, you may find you are contacted by big brands in the business who want their followers to see you in their clothing – a little advertising for them, a lot of free goodies for you. Investing in a Go Pro can help you take the best shots whilst in action, ready to be edited and shared on social media as soon as you arrive home. Whilst you might not make enough to be able to live off your profits, not having to buy things like board wax, board shorts and branded tees can give you a little cash in your pocket that can be put towards other things like a new board or wetsuit!
