25 Wave Quotes For Instagram & Posting Your Salty Selfies On Social Media

The first day of summer is around the corner, but that hasn't stopped you and your besties from soaking up the sunshine and saltwater air. On weeknights, you've all been hopping in your cars and driving to the shore with snacks and a stereo in-hand. You've been laying out a blanket, watching the sky illuminate the sand, and having long talks while everything around you turns a vibrant shade of pink. It's been downright dreamy, and the heart-to-hearts you've had over pizza and this little version of paradise, well, you wouldn't trade them for the world. Now you're seeking out wave quotes for Instagram so that you can post your salty (and sweet) selfies and memories on social media. It's #necessary.

Truth be told, some people would wait until the temperature rises over 70 degrees to adventure down to the waves. But, you know that there's a lot of beauty in wandering to the sea or wherever the WiFi is weak 365 days out of the year. The ocean has this way of putting your adulting struggles and responsibilities into perspective, and dipping your toes amongst the seashells reminds you to never let negativity tide you down. The lessons you can take away from the experience are endless, and probably one of the main reasons why you keep coming back to be with the surf and sand.

Other than the lessons, though, you love running along the waves with your besties and laughing until your cheeks hurt. You love taking your surfboard out, and snapping radiant pictures of the rip curls, too. Let me give you some quotes that you can use as captions for those pics, or in your Instagram bio. That way, all you have to do is hit "share."
