I found the fridge... or should I say I "find" the fridge; I have been above 80 since I was 13. Generally fluctuating from 83kg (13 stone) to 100+ (16+) and back again over the course of the year.

I didn't eat too much, I just discovered "proper" weight lifting and went mad on it.

My bf% actually dropped in the time I gained the weight and has hovered around 9% ever since.

the fish has seen a lot of use over the last year.wish i had one five years ago :evil: completely reinvigorated and sharpend up my surfing in smaller shit, makes you have it more on your normal board.if anyone is in doubt whether to get a fishy board go for one of these things.hoff woud give his right gonad for it :lol: :lol: the matt barrow goes pretty much as well as the fish in all but the worst conditions cos of the gentle entry rocker,fast and paddles easy as f**k :) and the d-berg!!!!!if you havent got a propellor you aint catchin me :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Yes... I was thinking the same thing but thought it may just have been me prior to Mateeboy posting his comment. When I first looked through here I noticed so many old shapes, paint jobs and generally tired looking boards... my first though was that thats how you like them in the UK, not having any knowledge of UK surfing.

Thank heaven jimo69 posted what I would classify as the more current versions of the shortboard, nice lot mate and I still like the look of that fish... where exactly did you say you lived :lol: no all jokes, but I do hope that you keep your place secure as thats quite a little trust fund tied up in them...
