Asher Pacey In An Archival ‘Arty’ Recut
There’s a few too many lifestyle shots for our liking, but hey, it’s Asher Pacey.
There’ll be questions raised in the Stab office tomorrow as to why it’s always me posting Asher Pacey clips. Firstly, he’s a good surfer, but secondly, there is some strange, unexplainable relationship between when there’s an AP clip going live and my regular Sunday shift.
This week I was surprised to see a seemingly new clip drop from the mid-north coast’s biggest* twin enthusiast considering he was getting his head stitched back together only a few weeks ago. As it turns out however, this above entry is some archival footage recut for the Lockdown Short Film Contest by London Surf Film Festival.
It was filmed and edited by Matt Kleiner, and while it’s a little on the ‘conceptual’ side (read: heaps of lifestyle shots) Asher’s surfing is enough to cut through for those averse to anything but pure surf-porn.
The footage doesn’t stretch back as far as Asher’s thruster days in the noughties, but it does cover when he hadn’t yet re-joined RVCA or left his longtime shaper Darren Handley to make Album boards a household name in Australia.
Watch the clip above, and use the drag bar if you want to skip the non-surf parts.
*it’s probably Rasta in reality, but he’s now so far removed from the ‘scene’ I feel like the claim can be made.
