Instagram vs. Reality: What Surfing Is Really Like...
Why real life is never quite as good as Instagram
Instagram loves to put a rose-coloured tint on the world, doesn't it? Particularly when it comes to surfing.
Cold, grey, damp beaches looks a lot better when you conveniently ignore the ugly road signs, rubbish and drunks, and place a nice filter over the top of a pretty sunset.
Here are a few of the better examples we discovered of surf life with #nofilter... and it's not pretty.
