Watch: Asher Pacey // This time yesterday

Stu Nettle
Swellnet Dispatch

Some of these clips you'l have seen before, some you won't. Matt Kleiner has emptied his hard drives and come up with a potpourri of past travels with Asher Pacey, all set to a serene soundtrack: Blue Cheer, Funkadelic, and ex-Bones Brigader Tommy Guerrero, among others.

They need a tour where style and creativity make up 50% of the judging criteria - but then again, that would probably ruin this type of surfing..

apart from the very smooth, radical and stylish surfing that was some of the best cinematography and editing I've seen in a very long time.
so good.

Mmm this is my kind of surfing, effortless flow beautiful power just having a jam on the stick, I agree with freeride76 such a beautifully shot video just completely blissful, perfect for a relaxing G up before paddling out

For those who love this, check out ‘Way of the ocean- Australia’ (2011)
Same filmer, lots more Asher and others. Both are epic. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=L5aq0kYQAz0

Who do you reckon would win a ‘heat’ between Asher and Rasta riding a Twinnie on a 4’ right point?

I find his surfing to be the perfect balance of old school flow and modern ripping. His boards don't require him to compromise his surfing in any way, they actually compliment it perfectly. A rare trait, as most are over burdened with the weight of their hipster schtick.

Second all of the above, but would still love to see him on slightly longer boards.

Such a good surfer. Very good edit.

beautifully shot, matched with an awesome soundtrack and Asher's stylishness make for sublime results.

Nice clip and great tunes, but found it a bit hard to see the surfers and waves. Have they put some sort of dark filter on it or lowered the contrast? Looks overdone whatever it is.
