Paul Fisher -Surf and Style

Free surfer, DJ, Blogger, Commentator, and Surf personality Paul Fisher is Reef‘s global ambassador for punking everyone in the industry. Leading the new guard of surf-hard, party-hard style icons, Fisher freakishly rips and rages for all to witness on his notorious blog followthefish.tv.

Reef embraced the age of surf blogging mad-men, and their summer apparel line reflects that wild style with oversized-graphic party tees, and shorts that you can take straight from the beach to the bar.

We caught up with the Fish to check on his summer exploits, and his humor didn’t disappoint.

SWELL: Hey Fish. We heard you passed through our local breaks in Laguna Beach. How did that treat ya?
Paul Fisher: It was hilarious, the joint is milf central! Everywhere i looked there was a milf on every corner. The reef crew was there too so we had a little night out on the town down there and it was a loose little time…

SWELL: The new Follow the Fish tee is pretty crackin. You reckon the boys can get some tail by riding your coat-tails?
Paul Fisher: HAHaha its a deadly little tee. Wearing that thing and you have a 100 percent strike of getting slapped by a chick hahah or sealing the deal…

SWELL: What other clothes and travel essentials do you take on those heavy travel benders?
Paul Fisher: A couple g strings and some floss

SWELL: Will the Bareback DJs be spinning again at the US open? And what advice would you give party goers looking for a good time in HB?
Paul Fisher: Yes we will be DJing this year for sure.  There so many good parties going on around that week, its incredible.  My advice is don’t leave the Huntington strip or you might miss out…the women are insane on the strip… yew..

If that didn’t paint a clear enough picture of what a wildman the Fish is, look for “Bareback DJs” somewhere this summer…you might even witness his rumored affair with Lindsay Lohan.

Here’s a highlight reel of The Fish reaking havok on last year’s US Open of Surfing.
Viewer discretion advised

Get geared up like the fish this summer with his signature looks from Reef
