Surftagram was built out of the personal desire to keep Instagram simple. I wanted to restrict my Instagram photo stream to solely friends and family photos. For surfing photos (of which I could look at a countless number), I wanted something broader and more powerful. For that, I built Surftagram. Surftagram enables visitors to get the broadest possible real-time view into the surfing world as the top surfers, surf photographers and brands post photos to Instagram.  The result is an up-to-the-minute view into the latest swells, contests and general surfing shenanigans.

Learn how to use the service here. If you want Surftagram photos streamed directly to you, check out the Facebook page, follow the Tumblr site, or subscribe to the RSS feed.

Surftagram is run as a hobby from San Francisco.  It is proudly powered by IFTTT, the creation of Linden Tibbets and Alex Tibbets.

Enjoy the experience!
