In the study of extremal surfaces it is important to see the side-pairings of the generic fundamental polygons. For the regular 30-gon in the hyperbolic plane it is known that there are 1726 side-pairing patterns to make a compact surface of genus three. If we consider the mirror images of these patterns, then there are essentially 927 patterns. In the present paper we give the 927 side-pairing patterns completely.
