Through the rise of Instagram, thousands of us can instantly be transported to a new world.

From dark cubicles abroad, viewers can connect with a warm Honolulu sunset, a heart-thumping surf session at Pipeline, or a simple-yet-emblematic moment from life in one of the world's most intoxicating places—all with a simple "follow." To be blunt, Hawaii is crushing the Instagram game. To make sure you're staying up to speed on island livin', make sure you're following these five Hawaii-based Instagram accounts.

With leagues of fans from all corners of the world, Pineapple Ice is showcasing a side of Honolulu that's as hip as anywhere in the world. One day, she's posting the mouth-watering bowl of pho you've ever seen from Piggy Smalls and the next she's modeling swimwear at a hidden beach—all with a flair that's all her own. Both fashion conscious crowds and beach-lovers alike will vibe with Pineapple Ice.


Follow For: Surfing, Adventure, and Oh-My God!

In the world of surf photographers, Zak Noyle has built a reputation for himself as being utterly fearless. To capture the shot, he's willing to sit deeper, and in more dangerous areas of the lineup, than anyone else. While Zak's father, Ric, is also a renowned photographer in the city known for capturing life and landscapes, Zak has chosen to make the harrowing lineups of Tahiti, Pipeline, and Jaws his workplace and his images place you inside some of the most dangerous moments in surfing. Remember the Eddie Swell of a few years back? The one where the world's best waterman were at a loss for words? Yeah, well Zak shot it all from the lineup...swimming. His accomplishments, range from being a staff photographer for Surfer magazine to having his work featured in the New York Times to name just a few.
