    fully sick

    Hello.

    https://www.usingenglish.com/forum/ask-teacher/17453-awesome.html
    In this thread, Raymott said that "fully sick" is used in the same sense as "wicked (very good)". Is "fully sick" AU English?

    Look here:
    Urban Dictionary: fully sick

    I'm not sure if it's originally Australian, but you can do the research.

    Are there any AE / BE speakers who use "fully sick"?

    Re: fully sick

    I have Australian and New Zealand friends that use this phrase. Also while working in London I heard young teenagers use it as well in the same sort of context.

    That's sick man = That's cool, that's awesome.....

    I have never heard an adult in the UK (London) use this phrase though, just the teenagers!
