Mark Noble, july 2003: We changed the logo when we went for a more modern look. The logo change was quite major for the times, with the logo going vertical up one side.

I guess this issue could be called the "Look What Happens When I Go On Holiday Issue", but instead it's the "FunTest Issue". Keep in mind that most of this took place when I was sunning in France, so Kris and LoZ were BUSY, hahaha. Anyway, on
PAGE 4 is the usual STOP PRESS, with news and stuff. Then, following this we have a few more pages, and on
PAGE 8 you'll find an article on the SOUTHSEA SEA-AIR FUNTEST, the first funtest in this issue. Despite the wind, it was a good laugh. And then, on
PAGE 18 we have our first Skate Profile, of BRIAN PENNINGTON, who you'll find is an exceptionally cool bloke. Another Skate Profile can be found not many pages later on
PAGE 24, this time on DON BROWN, again, a cool guy. The second funtest in this issue starts on the CPS,
PAGE 28, and is the WEYMOUTH OPEN. Sun, sand and good times were had by all here. Then, gracing
