Following on to my recommended photographers to follow on Instagram post, I thought I’d also mention a few of the best outdoor sports athletes I have on my feed…
Melissa Arnot Reid – @melissaarnot
Guide, athlete, adventurer
Melissa is a badass. She’s climbed Everest 6 times and is the first American woman to successfully summit and descend it without supplemental oxygen. She’s been a mountain guide since 2004 and co-founded The Juniper Fund, a resource to provide financial support to families of local workers killed in the mountains of Nepal. Her Instagram will fill you with inspiration to get out into the mountains more.
Candide Thovex – @candidethovex
Blake Samson – @zimblake
Blake rides for Madison bikes and is also a presenter on GMBN, currently the fastest growing mountain bike YouTube channel. Full of energy and constantly uploading funny Instagram pictures and videos, he’s well worth a follow.
Sandra Lahnsteiner – @sandralahnsteiner
Brody Leven – @brodyleven
If you’re an Instagram stories junky, then Brody is the man to follow. He posts multiple times a day, giving an insight into his life as pro-skier. He’s light-hearted, funny and good on camera.
