@worldsurflols has been arresting our scroll for a few years now. From the classic Jack and Alana switch ups, Dane Reynolds holding baby Dane Reynolds to Kelly Slater’s fountain of youth – the gentleman with a penchant for Photoshop has been bringing the Stab office occasional lolz (are those still a thing?). So, we contacted the man behind the handle to select his top ten proudest moments.

A few fun facts: Kolohe Andino was the first pro surfer follow. CJ Hobgood and friends once thought the account was run by Ronnie Blakey. Jamie O’Brien played a huge role in boosting the following (a respectable 319k) due to his reposting. And the man behind the handle, does it all out of for the sake of a laugh, “I just post for people’s enjoyment,” he told Stab

Nothing too cerebral here, just a series of clever Instagram posts as titled by @worldsurflols.
