Local Maui Surfer Albee Layer Signs On With Sanuk Surfing Team
The Big Air Surfer Brings Personality and Flair On and Off the Shore
August 28, 2012, Irvine, CA – Sanuk, a division of Deckers Outdoor Corporation (NASDAQGS: DECK), is excited to announce it is adding Albee Layer to the brand’s surfing team.
Layer, a Maui native, was recently recognized by his peers as the winner of the second annual Innersection competition, an online contest that allows members to enter and rate user submitted surfing videos. When Albee isn’t perfecting his upside down backside rotation with an indy grab, he spends his time producing videos and surfing with last year’s Innersection winner and fellow team rider Matt Meola.
“We are super stoked to add Albee to the Sanuk program,” said James Crush, Marketing Manager, Sanuk. “His ability to paddle into huge waves and do some of the most futuristic airs is truly a unique combination.” Check out Layer’s winning Innersection video above or head over to his Instagram to catch his latest adventures.

Taking its name from the Thai word for fun, the brand is best known for its Sidewalk Surfers.
