THE KAI LENNY AND ALBEE LAYER INTERVIEW: NERVOUS LAUGHTER
Cast your mind back to the El Nino winter that pounded Hawaii’s North Shore towards the end of 2015 and into 2016. Two names that likely stick in your mind are Albee Layer and Kai Lenny – both for feats in their backyard at Jaws.
Albee, who nailed one of the best barrels we’ve ever seen when Pe’ahi when The Eddie was running and Kai, who supped and hucked into anything that came his way – two very different approaches, two very incredible results.
Now, Albee and filmer Dan Norkunas’ Take Shelter Productions has just dropped Nervous Laughter, a peeled back look into the stories that surrounded the El Nino licking, featuring XXL Jaws and Mavs and a cast that includes the likes of Kai, Albee, Billy Kemper, Torrey Meister, Dege O’Connell and more.
And who best to ask about that time – arguably one of the best big wave seasons ever seen, than Kai and Albee in an interview double-header.
