Video: Albee Layer Lands Backside 540

Albee Layer recently became the first surfer in the world to land a backside 540 on camera. As seen in the video, Layer’s backside 540 was far from a fluke. The 25-year-old surfer had been tirelessly attempting the trick for well over a year until he finally landed it for the first time about a month ago, quoted from Grind TV.

Layer got back on his board and kept trying to stick another backside 540, and on Friday afternoon the Hawaiian-born surfer landed the trick again on his home island of Maui, and this time he did so with cameras rolling.
