Whilst Take Shelter Productions were filming the exciting and progressive movie Attractive Distractions, surfer Albee Layer pulled off an Alley-Oop 540. Actually if the truth be known he actually did it twice, but the bottom line is, it is mightily impressive and the first time you see it, is actually quite hard to get your brain to process what you are actually watching.
Attractive Distractions is a downloadable movie through the iTunes and stars a whole bunch of some of the hottest surfing talent in the world right now. Surfers featured include John John Florence, Clay Marzo, Ryan Hipwood and Albee. The movie is full of action, from big wave surfing to futuristic aerial manoeuvres, including Albee’s Alley-Oop 540.
In fact Albee was actually attempting an ordinary Alley-Oop (that makes it sound like they are so easy!) and over rotated, luckily for us (and him) it was captured on camera! You can see the trick featured in detail in the clip below, and it is towards the end of the edit when you see the Alley-Oop 540 at full speed when it really blows your mind. Enjoy the moment below and let us know what you think, are we ever likely to see these kind of big tricks in competitions? Attractive Distractions is available to rent or buy through the iTunes store here.
