Social media is its own currency. And if you’re a pro surfer trying to negotiate a contract in 2014 without a social media following you’ll be lucky to walk away with 30% off wholesale and a sticker pack no matter how many full-roters you’ve got on lock.It’s Bitcoins before the fall. In the world of surfing (and well beyond the brine), your stock is judged by your followers. What are you worth? It depends on the size of your audience.

I ️love Pipeline

#11 Jamie O’Brien (@whoisjob)

There are two reasons why Jamie O is one of the most socially powerful surfers in the world: The Banzai Pipeline and his GoPro. Every good day, all winter, Duncan James O’Brien is stalking the famous reef. Jamie is a motivated and clever player of the game: he knows that followers bring the ca$h. The best thing about Jamie’s page is that with Pipeline as his muse and a brain capable of devising the wildest flat-day stunts, he’s a reliable source of entertainment.

#10 Jack Freestone (@jackfreestone)

“Ha! Is this a stitch-up?” asked Jack Freestone when we hit him up about his Instagram success. “Well, Alana is the best at it.”Alana, if you weren’t already one of her 933k followers, is Hawaiian surfer Miss Alana Blanchard and the girlfriend of Mr Jack Freestone. And, following the 2012/13 Hawaiian season when Jack and Alana went from a coconut wireless rumour to bonafide relationships via an Alana Instagram upload, Jack’s star shone a little brighter. Every call-out from Alana lifts the size of Jack’s following. Interestingly, many call Jack one of surfing’s most underrated talents but he has the largest percentage of female fans (50%) of any surfer in the list and all of his 10 most-liked photos don’t actually feature surfing. And, nine out of 10 shots feature Ms Alana Blanchard.

My first insta video post! This healthy Galapagos shark followed me in from spearfishing one day and was buzzing the shoreline trying to find the source of the smell (I had speared a couple fish that were on my belt kui). I’d seen Galapagos Sharks beach themselves before, and wanted to see if he’d have a go. I had no intention of letting him have part of one of my fish, but he got the last laugh in the end. Really cool animal. We named him Si. My buddy Darin Auger filmed this with my phone. @riffe_international @electricvisual @[email protected] #watermansappliedscience

A Hawaiian Octopus I photographed with my @gopro #gopro #goprowars

donkey_05_03

This is myself having to manually retrieve one of @natgeo “Critter Cams” off of a 15ft Great White Shark named Bruce. As you can see my speargun is not loaded. I only use it to put a little space between me and the shark should it get a little frisky (and it was sturdier than the broom stick on the boat). The cameras clamp around the dorsal fin and don’t hurt the shark at all. There’s a Zinc wire that holds it closed and is meant to dissolve within two hours causing it to detach and float to the surface where it is retrieved. Something went wrong with the process and three hours later it was still on Bruce’s back. Had to take the wire cutters down and do it by hand when he came in for the bait. All I asked for from Nat Geo was a beer. Still haven’t gotten it! #freedive #shark #sharks #crittercam#greatwhiteshark #riffe #natgeo #nationalgeographic

donkey_05_04

This is a photo my friend @kanoazimmerman took of me in Fiji. He shot this and many others on B&W film while freediving. To dive up to 100′ deep on a breath of air, and compose a single shot the old fashioned way is quite a challenge. The guy has skills! @riffe_international @electricvisual @watermanssunscreen

donkey_05_05

#tbt Cloudbreak, Fiji earlier this year. Biggest/best wave I’ve ever seen. I had to pull my leash and swim through. That white spec is my 8’6″ in the lip for some scale. @borg808 on the ski in the foreground. Thanks for the pick up!

donkey_05_06

Hadn’t surfed in a couple weeks because of a back injury, and this was my first wave back! Took awhile to stop beating around the bush and man up on one. That place is so damn intimidating to paddle at that size!! Repost [email protected] @quiksilver @electricvisual @monsterenergy @[email protected] @gopro @riffe_international

donkey_05_07

Frame grab from the last Pipe swell. My pops and I made this tail mount for [email protected] #hero3plus just to have it rip out, first session. Camera was lost for two days, but Mike Spencer @mspencer1281 found it buried in the sand, and was kind enough to track me down and offer to give it back. What a legend! Good to know there’s still honest people out there! I just wanted the footage. @[email protected] @watermanssunscreen @monsterenergy

donkey_05_08

South Africa has the highest density of marine mammals I’ve ever seen. Filmed this with my iPhone this year. #whale #dolphin #southafrica

donkey_05_09

Really glad the rental car isn’t on my card!

donkey_05_10

Now that Tahiti has been checked off the list, my mind is wandering to #fiji. This is a frame grab of a “fish tornado” I was in there. Footage shot by Dave Warshauer. #riffe #freedive @electricvisual @monsterenergy @quiksilver

#9 Mark Healey (@donkeyshow)

Mark told Stab that the title donkeyshow is not a reference to the lewd animal shows of Tijuana but to the naughty children in the movie Pinocchio who were turned into donkeys and sold. Mark is one of surfing’s most interesting studies: He’s a shark wrangler (for Nat Geo), a stunt man (for Hawaii 5-0), pro surfer and hunter. Instagram cuts us a slice of his radical life.

shane_05_04

I think this is the exact moment that Andy took his surfing to the next level. What he did on this wave no one had done before and no one has done since at Teahupoo. And I was just happy to have a front row seat (thats me swimming on the right) to witness greatness up close and personal. #AIforever no one could touch him #TBFT #kauAI

#8 Shane Dorian (@shanedorian)

Why is Shane Dorian so good at Instagram? He’s effortless. And he’s real. Who would’ve thought that a 41-year-old surfer who spears his own food in the Hawaiian backcountry would connect so well? But it’s in his zest for life and it’s summed up perfectly in his “Get busy liven” tagline. He paddles avalanches, is a cross-fit fanatic, has two cute kids (but doesn’t post em too much) and leads the sort of atavistic life city slickers dream of.

#7 Rob Machado (@robmachado)

If you looked at the world tour in 2014, you’d think that surfing performances peak in your late 20s and well into your 30s. Rob Machado has been retired, like, forever but he has never lost his relevance hence his strong standing socially. Rob delivers genuine STOKE in every post and his surf posts often feature left tubes. “I don’t go right very often but when I do, I enjoy it,” says Rob on a rare right-hander photo.

I was 13 years old when my dad and I moved into our house in Rutledge st on Kirra hill. This was the view I woke up to during my teenage years and where my surfing took off. I’m am so thankful for the most amazing years of surfing at Kirra. Surfing at Kirra made me the surfer I am to this day. I love Kirra like no other wave on this coast so please save Australia’s #1 wave!! #savekirra @savekirra

#5 Julian Wilson (@julian_wilson)

Of all the top 10 surfers in the list, JW is the most publicly in love. His GF @Ashley_oh is on heavy rotation which must tear the hearts out of his teen gal following. His account used to be called @Julianwilsonofficial and it was as if the account was managed by a manager while he held his own private account. But, for social media to work it needs to be real and he took control of the account and left the awkward “official” from his account. Julian’s page is very much business and he is reliable. He works on #sequencesundays and makes short edits with Jimmy Lees called #jwminiclips. He’s a good follow. And, those I heart @Ashley_oh uploads ain’t the worst things either.

#4 John John Florence (@john_john_florence)

Why is JJF the highest paid surfer in the world? Because he connects! (Okay, other reasons, too.) With only 10 uploads to Instagram in 2014, JJF sits in third place on our ratings. He is currently surfing’s It gal. He doesn’t need to win events, he doesn’t need to hunt animals, he doesn’t need to do anything but surf and he’s universally adored. And, without any uploads, he continues to climb up the ratings.

#3 Mick Fanning (@mfanno)

Mick’s last minute 9.7 to world title victory #seriouslytrended when thousands of photos of TVs in living rooms across the world (featuring an arms-in-the-air Mick) were uploaded in unison. When you win something significant (a world title or an oscar or an election), all those congratulatory Instagram shoutouts send your following into the stratosphere. All that exposure and emotion opened up Mick’s following and saw him scream into the coveted 200k+ club. As for his work socially, Mick’s tone on Instagram is meat and potatoes, consistent and always kind. He’s very good with kids and is often donating boards, time and raising awareness for good causes. And, best of all, he’s self-deprecating. Stab posted a frontside air of Mick from Straddie in a period when keyboard warriors were leaving many cruel comments calling out Mick’s lack of air game. Mick commented: “The wind must have gotten under my board when I was trying a floater. Ha!” Just recently he posted a Corey Wilson wipeout shot going over the falls on a NSW reef: “I was ripping this morn.”

Gabs Medina shows similarities to the king of Instagram, Mr Justin Bieber. He’s just all DGAF and it works. Selfies, muscles, shakas, fisheye selfies, family first, aerials, mirror selfies and just general Brazilian vibes. Also, unlocking mainstream stars with big followings is the ticket to success with big referrals coming. Gabs has a big professional footballer fan base in his top 10 with Brazilian superstars Dani Alves, Caio Castro and Alexandre Pato all turning Gabs’ account green.

Repost from @miahklein from Pipe yesterday. What a day!

kelly_05_03

Yesterday I narrowly missed out on a world title. It might’ve cost me a bit of emoji (not winning the title) but 2nd ain’t half bad for an old, bald guy.emoji There’s been a lot of talk about scoring and what could have been. Let’s be done with that. What I do know is @mfanno won the world title and shredded all year. A huge congratulations to you, my friend! I surfed like absolute emoji thru Europe this year and lost ground. But I was fortunate enough to get it together and win the #PipeMasters yesterday and have one of the best days of my life in the process! I got to surf these emojiemoji with nobody out! So…did you enjoy that contest yesterday? The waves were ridiculous! There are so many should-haves and could-haves in life. Be happy with the #WhatIs and do better next time you have the chance.

Shot from a #PredatorDrone during the #Pipemasters Final. Filmed and edited by @ericsterman. Way better than a helicopter…you don’t even realize these things are flying around out there. Not sure how I feel about them spying on the general population but they’re pretty cool for surf shots. #TheShootingRange #NorthShoreDiary

Testing out a few new @cisurfboards today and my friend, @boskophoto, was out floating around. I swear, every time I don’t have a logo on somebody gets a photo. @stephenisbelly…hook it up! I got 9 new boards and ran out of @Quiksilver logos on the bottom of this one! #ForReal. @Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast may start tomorrow so I hope to see everyone down at #SnapperRocks this week. The @asp event site is sick. If you can’t make it to the contest, the webcast and commentary team is gonna smash it so check it online or on tv. The sand is perfect and there’s gonna be some really good surfing going down to start the year. #ItsOn #ElephantTurns for @dougsilva808

Hope everyone tunes in for the #PipeMasters tomorrow. Pipeline was really big and difficult tonight so we’ll see what happens in the a.m. Lots of wash-throughs and most sets were too big at dark. Buoy 51101 is still at 13’/17secs so it’s not backing down. Sure was #purty from the beach though. #NorthShoreDiary #OccupyPipeline

Repost from @cisurfboards of a @morganmaassen shot from Sydney a couple years ago. Strange waves, slabs. On this one, you catch a standing wave about head high and it jacks into some absurd gurgler behind you and you just try to get down the face and not catch an edge before the swell folds over the reef and you find room to bottom turn. Don’t remember whether I made this one or not. @quiksilver @taylorsteele @markmathewssurf @kobyabberton #ShredSoHardYouBustYourStick

#Teahupoo delivered the goods today. Some south runners and some meaty little, west bowls. A+ conditions, not a cloud in the sky all day, calm winds, and just overall #PerfectRidiculousness. Rumor has it @brettsimpson had a nasty face injury tonight on an inside bowl so I hope he’s ok. Thanks for the heat @anthony_walsh_ and @asp for the photo. Billabongpro.com for highlights, replays, and live surfing the next few days. @quiksilver @cisurfboards @gopro @howulivinjpiven

#1 Kelly Slater (@kellyslater)

With Miranda Kerr sitting atop his biggest followers as well as Victoria’s Secret models, TV stars and even ol P Diddy, Kelly Slater becomes just that bit more mystical. Following the greatest surfer ever is a smart decision. Engaged. Articulate. Prolific. You learn more from his musings than any interview you’d read with him. He’s opinionated and there’s never a single typographic error. His tentacles reach far. Which makes sense because when you’re spending time with Kelly, he’s often glued to his device. As we all know, beyond good eating much of Kelly’s focus is on getting good waves. The fastest way to get Kelly looking at your page? A big empty barrelling wave will get his attention.

My first insta video post! This healthy Galapagos shark followed me in from spearfishing one day and was buzzing the shoreline trying to find the source of the smell (I had speared a couple fish that were on my belt kui). I’d seen Galapagos Sharks beach themselves before, and wanted to see if he’d have a go. I had no intention of letting him have part of one of my fish, but he got the last laugh in the end. Really cool animal. We named him Si. My buddy Darin Auger filmed this with my phone. @riffe_international @electricvisual @[email protected] #watermansappliedscience

A Hawaiian Octopus I photographed with my @gopro #gopro #goprowars

This is myself having to manually retrieve one of @natgeo “Critter Cams” off of a 15ft Great White Shark named Bruce. As you can see my speargun is not loaded. I only use it to put a little space between me and the shark should it get a little frisky (and it was sturdier than the broom stick on the boat). The cameras clamp around the dorsal fin and don’t hurt the shark at all. There’s a Zinc wire that holds it closed and is meant to dissolve within two hours causing it to detach and float to the surface where it is retrieved. Something went wrong with the process and three hours later it was still on Bruce’s back. Had to take the wire cutters down and do it by hand when he came in for the bait. All I asked for from Nat Geo was a beer. Still haven’t gotten it! #freedive #shark #sharks #crittercam#greatwhiteshark #riffe #natgeo #nationalgeographic

This is a photo my friend @kanoazimmerman took of me in Fiji. He shot this and many others on B&W film while freediving. To dive up to 100′ deep on a breath of air, and compose a single shot the old fashioned way is quite a challenge. The guy has skills! @riffe_international @electricvisual @watermanssunscreen

#tbt Cloudbreak, Fiji earlier this year. Biggest/best wave I’ve ever seen. I had to pull my leash and swim through. That white spec is my 8’6″ in the lip for some scale. @borg808 on the ski in the foreground. Thanks for the pick up!

donkey_05_06

Hadn’t surfed in a couple weeks because of a back injury, and this was my first wave back! Took awhile to stop beating around the bush and man up on one. That place is so damn intimidating to paddle at that size!! Repost [email protected] @quiksilver @electricvisual @monsterenergy @[email protected] @gopro @riffe_international

Frame grab from the last Pipe swell. My pops and I made this tail mount for [email protected] #hero3plus just to have it rip out, first session. Camera was lost for two days, but Mike Spencer @mspencer1281 found it buried in the sand, and was kind enough to track me down and offer to give it back. What a legend! Good to know there’s still honest people out there! I just wanted the footage. @[email protected] @watermanssunscreen @monsterenergy

I think this is the exact moment that Andy took his surfing to the next level. What he did on this wave no one had done before and no one has done since at Teahupoo.

I was 13 years old when my dad and I moved into our house in Rutledge st on Kirra hill. This was the view I woke up to during my teenage years and where my surfing took off. I’m am so thankful for the most amazing years of surfing at Kirra. Surfing at Kirra made me the surfer I am to this day. I love Kirra like no other wave on this coast so please save Australia’s #1 wave!! #savekirra @savekirra

Yesterday I narrowly missed out on a world title. It might’ve cost me a bit of emoji (not winning the title) but 2nd ain’t half bad for an old, bald guy.emoji There’s been a lot of talk about scoring and what could have been. Let’s be done with that. What I do know is @mfanno won the world title and shredded all year. A huge congratulations to you, my friend! I surfed like absolute emoji thru Europe this year and lost ground. But I was fortunate enough to get it together and win the #PipeMasters yesterday and have one of the best days of my life in the process! I got to surf these emojiemoji with nobody out! So…did you enjoy that contest yesterday? The waves were ridiculous! There are so many should-haves and could-haves in life. Be happy with the #WhatIs and do better next time you have the chance. I’m stoked everyone enjoyed the event. I wouldn’t change a thing. #NorthShoreDiary @cjhobgood @yadin_nicol @john_john_florence @joelparko #MiguelPupo @julian_wilson @seabassz @floresjeremy @nat_young @ottz16

Testing out a few new @cisurfboards today and my friend, @boskophoto, was out floating around. I swear, every time I don’t have a logo on somebody gets a photo. @stephenisbelly…hook it up!

The @asp event site is sick. If you can’t make it to the contest, the webcast and commentary team is gonna smash it so check it online or on tv. The sand is perfect and there’s gonna be some really good surfing going down to start the year. #ItsOn #ElephantTurns for @dougsilva808

Hope everyone tunes in for the #PipeMasters tomorrow. Pipeline was really big and difficult tonight so we’ll see what happens in the a.m. Lots of wash-throughs and most sets were too big at dark.

Repost from @cisurfboards of a @morganmaassen shot from Sydney a couple years ago. Strange waves, slabs. On this one, you catch a standing wave about head high and it jacks into some absurd gurgler behind you and you just try to get down the face and not catch an edge before the swell folds over the reef and you find room to bottom turn. Don’t remember whether I made this one or not. @quiksilver @taylorsteele @markmathewssurf @kobyabberton #ShredSoHardYouBustYourStick

#Teahupoo delivered the goods today. Some south runners and some meaty little, west bowls. A+ conditions, not a cloud in the sky all day, calm winds, and just overall #PerfectRidiculousness. Rumor has it @brettsimpson had a nasty face injury tonight on an inside bowl so I hope he’s ok. Thanks for the heat @anthony_walsh_ and @asp for the photo.
