A Sequence You'll Enjoy: Asher Pacey Wrapped In Greenmount Glass
Lemoore? The Cove? No competition.
Stab loves that long haired gent with the DHD twin fin. He's top five best to watch at the Superbank. It might be the lines he takes, those gorgeous drawn-out sweeps? Or maybe his impressive ability to slide inside, and remain enclosed, in those dreamy Gold Coast funnels for such a long time? Anyway, during this ripe time of year we're easily mystified by this magical stretch. When the sand is in it's place, and something spins in the Tasman Sea's northern waters, it's not unusual for surfers of intermediate-plus competence to ride out of something that they could happily label their finest. Local photog Jesse Little lives for these occasions. Anytime there's movement in the region you can expect that his feed will feature at least a handful of fresh frames for his following to enjoy.
Right now the bank is ruler sharp, particularly around the Greenmount section. Jesse took to the water during last week's pulse, capturing Asher Pacey on this run past the headland – a moment we thought worthy of sharing here. "It was a pretty gloomy overcast day," said the lensman. "You don't find as many photos out in the water when it's like that and I love it. I like the contrast when's it's real rainy and the waters got that blue-green tinge. I was the only one shooting down at Greenmount on this day – for almost 2hrs. The sand at the moment is as good as it gets, perfect for 2-3ft barrelling rights."
