The Inertia

Alana Blanchard is like, super Insta-famous. There are over a million followers that want to look at her selfies. One million. That’s a lot of people, considering that out of the seven billion or so people on the planet, around 300 million are Instagram users.  She’s Insta-killing it! So when, a few days ago, she made a quick little GoPro edit and threw it up on the world’s favorite social media, it probably got more views than a whole bunch of other, much better surfing videos. Isn’t that weird? Here’s what she had to say about it:

Made my first surfing edit…. I’m such a kook but YOLO. @gopro
