Whether these accounts have posted five or five hundred media, regardless if they have twenty or two thousand followers; these accounts do not only share tastefully edited or unedited images and videos but they also contribute a great deal in promulgating the sport of dragon boat.
If you or your team is on Instagram, whether the post is your own or a repost, more than creating the best collages or finding the right filter; it’s always a delight to see dragon boat images, videos or memes which inspires and energises. Also, it’ll be great if you could provide your followers (and future ones) with the appropriate captions and hashtags.
Generally speaking, in sharing our photos or videos, we can be as creative as we can be and at the same time be really funny or inspirational, too. We can be as informative and yet not too braggy and self-important. We can post anything that we fancy, just so long as it’s original and ‘Instagram-worthy.’
Since Instagram is best used real-time, you may also want to mention the dragon boat race that’s ongoing or where your team practice or team excursion is happening by using the location setting or simply state the city or country in the caption field.
Wherever you are paddling, be it in Poland, Singapore, Puerto Rico, Canada, United Arab Emirates, United States, Trinidad & Tobago, Australia or Isle of Man, it will be good to know that an exciting dragon boat event is happening in your area.

Beautiful shoutout from Sy Bor as we conclude our weekend in Portland: "As I lay in bed and reflect on how much fun it was to race with CIBC One West in Portland, I realize their true success and desire to win comes from their love for paddling, training, camaraderie and most of all ohana within the paddling community. Having a great coach like Robbie Magus doesn't hurt either. One… Two… Three… Burn the [house]down! Thanks for a great weekend!"

So the next time we’re rendering our desired saturation, shadows, tilt shift and contrast or we’re choosing between Juno, Ludwig or Willow to filter our post, let’s not forget to use the dragon boat hashtags to promote the sport. We need dragon boat to be out there and be at par amongst the more popular ones.
*We shall feature the next 25 Accounts to Follow on IG before the year ends. We’ll also keep a lookout for the 2016 Dragon Boat influencers on Social Media (e.g. Twitter, Facebook). Meanwhile, keep on spreading the word and the love for the sport!
