There’s never a dull moment when it comes to Michael Clark’s feed, @michaelclarkphoto. The adventure photographer captures a non-stop series of adrenaline-pumping scenes: One day, it’s pro-surfers on Oahu’s North Shore, the next, it’s dirt bike racers in Santa Fe, windsurfers in Oregon, or ice climbers in Colorado. Best of all, sometimes Clark puts himself in the pic too, letting viewers get a behind-the-scenes peek at how all those unbelievable images get made.

@Barefoot_surf_travel may be a surf camp, but, as they say themselves, it’s more about becoming immersed in surfing and its lifestyle than about the business of gnarly lessons—something made clear by their Insta feed. Ninety percent of the pics don’t even mention the business but leave us in a wanderlust coma instead, envious of the tan and smiling friends enjoying surf, sun, sand, and each other’s company (what more does a vacation need?).

You may expect champion freeskier @lexidupont's Instagram to be filled with endless shots of snowcapped peaks, icy cliffs, and frost-bitten mountains—and it is. But there's also a ton of shots depicting Dupont’s other pulse-racing outdoor adventures: surfing, mountain biking, rock climbing, and snorkeling (as well as the occasional mid-ski selfie!)—just to name a few.
