Instagram is totally the new Facebook. Or, is it Twitter? Hmmm. Whatever it is, it’s a form of social media that makes for some really good viewing and offers an candid insight into the surfing world. And within that world, some real cool stuff happened this week. Here’s a collection of our faves!

Mitch Crews captures his Newquay, England travel buddies, @jackfreestone and @winstonwolf (Mitch Coleborn) in British street chic. What?
After a contest victory, you kinda have a three-day license to do whatevs you wanna. Conner Coffin chose to use his with this Michelangelo's david apron. Fitting, since he was cooking Italian. Posted by @connercoffin
Spencer Hornby shot Chris Shannahan taking the real quick way down. Photo by @spencehornby
Remember when @taylorsteele, @kellyslater and @rob_machado looked like this? Taylor's caption is perfect: #90shair.
Steve Sherman got to shoot around Europe snapping photos of Donavon's tour. This one's from Belgium. Posted by @tsherms
Aaron Lieber's angle of Lakey Peterson being chaired up Huntington, post-USO victory, kinda sums up winning perfectly. Photo by @liebervision
