Regularfoot flyboy from Haiku, Hawaii who has earned a reputation for both his aerial skills at Ho'okipa and his hard-charging ways at Pe'ahi. Layer's dad put him on a board before he could walk and from there he steadily progressed in the fertile surf-training grounds of Maui. Choosing to chase clips rather than contest points, he sites Laurie Towner, Greg Long, Shane Dorian and Clay Marzo as inspriational figures. These characters fit nicely in personifying Layer's favorite quote: "Because something hasn't been done doesn't make it impossible."
