Watch: Asher Pacey // Low Barometric Pressure Energy

Stu Nettle
Swellnet Dispatch

Asher Pacey and friends enjoy unguarded moments on the beach - guts out, tatts on show - during Tropical Cyclone Oma. Silky top turns are followed by frontside slides as Pacey milks the right points.

As it's a Zion wetsuits clip so we should pass comment on Pacey's neoprene. And he looks comfortable. Cant see his paunch or ink. Good work.

Would love to see Asher surf anthing else other then a twin fish for a change, seems like he draws the same line on every wave of every clip and i havnt been able to sit through the entirety of a clip for a while now. Not bagging him at all though, great surfer and my favorite to watch from the lineup coming down the line at grinding superbank

Some great variety, incredible surfing and beautiful scenery in that clip. Good fun. Asher's full throttle round-house cut backs are amazing. So smooth.

Crystal Clear

Much as I appreciate the humour and don't condone drop-ins it makes me furious when I see people kick their boards out at others. You could literally kill the other person if not blind them, all for a moment of frustration. I bet you'd feel really cool as the other person was shipped away in an ambulance

He would never have done it if he wasn't wearing a leggy.

And you can't blind em when they don't look left ;)

Anyway just jokes, I've never kicked my board at anyone.

I have had a fat prick on a mal drop down the face in front of me, bail and snap my nose off though. Not that im against mals either as I ride them too.

That was messed up, leggy or not. Looked malicious and could have critically hurt someone. Off with his nutz!

Wow, that was the full 80's Johnny Boy Gomes knife attack! Could have been brutal. But as is so often the case the numpty on the sup was completely oblivious. Good times on the north coast.

Really enjoy watching Asher's approach to the wave.

Do you reckon it's the sun's intensity that creates all the extra eccentricity in this clip?

It’s the remnant energies of an underwhelmed location.

I hope you don’t think I’m joking .

Imagine if you saw Angourie for the first time today. You’d think it was an unimagined Heaven.

There’s no irony intended in my comment.

Underwhelmed as in, by people?

We recently got as far as the mid north coast, and had older men swimming on the inside section doing commentary and sending good wishes as we rode past. That is a nice thing, albeit not one I've seen often. Coming from the bitter inhospitable cold of Australia's south (not like nice tropical bath temp water either, in fact why would you ever bother going there, it's cold, you have to wear a thick wetsuit), I wondered if there was some form of latitudinal eccentricity, given some of my Queensland relatives.

But I can go for a remnant energy. The places we went to were quite undeveloped. Dophin pods, etc. The remnant energies may contribute to all the burnt out cars in the same natural settings, I guess fire is a form of electromagnetic plasma. .

I find I can always relate to Ashers surfing. Not one board creasing air reverse in it.

I agree, love it when I see good surfing ON the wave. His ability to flow with the energy is poetry.

And also love the vertical drift up, and then partly back down from the lip - does that have a name?
