Watch: Asher Pacey // Up North, Out West
There's a small group of surfers, off the top off my head they include Rasta, Parko, and Asher Pacey, who risk having their skills underestimated simply 'cos they make it look too easy. Great technical surfers, each of them. They're agile, proficient, and easy on the eye - perhaps too easy.
This vid continues the theme with Asher stylishly playing the weighting game in and around the barrel, plus dashing end section slices, yet he bucks the trend at the 1 minute mark with a move that would confound WSL judges. Where does that fit into the criteria?
Stylish? Easy on the eye? It's questionable, but full marks for innovation.
Great camera work in this clip too. Thumbs up, Ryan Williams.
