5 Instagram Accounts All Board Retailers Should Follow

The mission of Board Retailers Association is to “consolidate the voices, experiences and visions of boardsports retailers into a cohesive organization.” While this includes activities like providing quality information and services to our members, it also includes things like celebrating the people in our industry who are doing a great job so we can follow their lead.

Today, we’re doing that by highlighting some of the brands and business that are making the most of Instagram. An integral part of any social media strategy, Instagram is a great way to connect with your community and market your business. And since a picture is worth a thousand words, we thought it would be best to show you some of the best ways board retailers are using this platform.
