20 QUESTIONS: WITH PAUL FISHER
"I would go back to Rome and be a fucking gladiator and just take fuckers down in the Coliseum..."
Paul Fisher is a LA based former WQS surfer from the Gold Coast who has made a name himself via his blog and videos called Fish Tales at www.followthefish.tv Rude, lewd but crucially (mostly) funny, Fisher has taken on the ASP Banquets, Trestles events and interviewed Kelly Slater with a microphone in the shape of a 10 inch black dildo. It's not for the feint hearted, but in an increasingly sanitised world of surf corp speak he stands out as at least being himself. A clip here we showed awhile back with Matt Wilkinson shows you what he is about:
Anyway he's done 20 questions for us and predictably, he doesn't hold back.

Losing my rod and tackle.

Running into a pole knocking myself out calling some guy a fuckwit hahah.

Holden club sport V8 machine. I had it for a week, then wrote the cunt off into a house and four cars.

I would have the Victorian Secret models feed me breakfast, lunch and dinner whilst Halle Berry and Natalie Portman bathed me listening to Lana Del Rey sing to me all day in a thong. Yes life would be grand.
