What's So Cool About Instagram?

The world is changing and so is skateboarding.

These days you can follow your favorite skateboarders on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc, and get an exclusive look into their lives ...the skatelife.

This is benefitcal to you because you can learn a lot about someone by the pictures they post. For example, from what I've seen so far from pro skaters on Instagram, these guys take care of themselves, as any professional athlete should, and guys like Rick McCrank, Mark Appleyard, and others chose to eat healthy.

You can learn a lot more about pro skaters by following them online. Take advatage of the opportunity you have so you can get inside the mind of a pro skater, and become one too!
