Watch: Asher Pacey // One last hurrah

Stu Nettle
Swellnet Dispatch

After nearly ten years riding DHD's, Asher Pacey is soon to be parting ways.

"It’s with the absolute upmost appreciation and gratitude that I’ve had the opportunity to work with one of the best shapers in the world," wrote Asher in a lengthy Instagram post.

Any shaper who's included a short, stubby twin in their range should give a nod of the head to Pacey for bringing them back into fashion. During his time with DHD, Pacey launched the Mini Twin and Mini Twin II, boards that gave him, "the best surfing years in my life to date".

No word yet about who's making his new boards, but he's just uploaded a fitting send off: throwing jazz-inflected moves while sliding Snapper on a DHD twin.

How old is Asher? Must be late 30s, nearly 40, not bad to be jagging board sponsors at that age.

Fun. Classic Snapper color and submarine funnels. One of those places where hallucination and delirium match with the best time you ever had. I see rainbows.....

Amazing how much he can get out of one board, speed, carves, popping fins...

Did Asher drop in on those guys or did they kook it and then He went? it happened so fast I can't tell. Looks like they might've kooked it. Can someone here shine some light?
