    Alright, well my situation is this, I am currently 6' and ~180-185ish w/ probably somewhere around 12-14% bf. I don't have a hard time putting on weight at all and its not TOO hard to lose it so i guess I'm probably a Meso? I dunno, never really looked too deeply into it

    My situation is this, I am going on a surfing trip to Hawaii in December and I want to be in good enough shape to handle decent sized waves/have my weight low enough to paddle into the waves with a small board. In the future (long term goal) is to be somewhere around 190 and lean, I know that isn't going to happen by December, but, my question is...

    Should I go on a hardcore bulk for a couple months and then start to cut untill the trip or would this be a complete waste? Or shoudl I just maintain my current weight/go on a clean bulk untill then? How much muscle can you realistically put on in 2 months?

    Currently I'm eating about maintainance calories, doing cardio usually 3x a week (usually surfing and/or running) and lift 5 days a week. There are some semi-recent pics in the summer progress contest thread for reference

    Not sure yet, but I'm headed to Maui and the north shore there can get scary big :noes: haha I'm gonna kinda play it by ear when I get there. My mom lives there so it will b easy for me to get around using her car/golf cart, whatever i want to use. I'm getting a new board shortly too 6'3" 2.5" 19 3/4" for you surfers out there :bigthumb: haha

    I'm not familiar with Maui. I mainly surfed kailua during the summer.. Once you get away from the beach park, you can find some pretty killer waves. 2-6.5 feet usually. The shorebreak there is strangely close in though

    I intend on exploring when I'm out there. My favorite waves are about 6-8ft faces but i'll surf double overhead if i'm feeling confident scary sometimes though.... especially if the break is heavy and stuff. I really just need to get in the shape to do double overhead meaning I'm gonna hafta surf right up till december in Cali haha brrrr
