Not long ago, before Al Gore invented the internet, we got most of our information about pro wakeboarders from print magazines. The gatekeepers have since been removed and we have almost unlimited access into the lives of our favorite athletes. The digital age is a beautiful thing and we are going to celebrate it with you by sharing a few of our favorite wakeboarders on Instagram.
Did we forget anyone? Let us know in the comments section.
Shane Bonifay: The Bonifay clan has taken a liking to the social media world. Shane's got a nice mix of throwback pics and quite possibly the best cable park wipeout of 2013 (scroll back to September for that one).
Follow Shane here. @withshanebonifay
Scott Byerly: The "Hook" is a social media maven! Byerly has the most active Instagram of any pro wakeboarder/wakeskater out there.
Follow Scott here. @byerly
Harley Clifford: When Harley's not busy winning contests and traveling the globe you can find him on the inter webs.

Parks Bonifay: Riding by icebergs in Patagonia and bare footing with The Banana Man. It's all in a days work for Parks Bonifay.

Melissa Marquardt: If you like crystal blue water, dolphins, and ridiculously good wakeboarding shots you might want to take a gander at Melissa Marquardt's Instagram. It has all those things and more.

Trever Maur: Delta Force rider Trever Maur has a ton of style behind the boat and an eye for photos on his iPhone. #deltaforce

Raimi Merritt: There's plenty of sunset pics and Nautique glamour shots in Raimi's Instagram feed. This Florida native sure knows how to make Orlando look attractive.

Mike Ennen: Mike is a man with many talents; his Instagram is proof of this. Fishing, Art, Wakeboarding, and Snowboarding are all common place. Thanks for showing the Northwest some love, Mike!

Jeff McKee: When Jeff McKee isn't busy making Home Depot trips and taking care of twins he finds time to Instagram with the best of 'em.
Follow Jeff here. @jeffmckee
Steel Lafferty: Last but not least, Steel Lafferty. Be prepared to witness awe-inspiring Mastercraft pictures and a not so awe inspiring golf swing. Just kidding Steel.
