insta files friday: 10 cool surf girls

surfboard & gopro not included.

There are endless reasons why we love #girlswhosurf: They're practically the originators of the salt spray hair phenom, badass woman athletes, and bikini models in their own right. Seriously! There's just something about their incredible knack for action shots that reignites our obsession with Blue Crush and makes us go "ooh" and "ahh" as we scroll down our feed.

Click through the gallery to see our top 10 surfer girls to follow on Instagram. And if when you're done you're not double-tapped out, take it to the beach to see what we mean.
