K. Flay’s “Black Wave” is the dissonant theme accompanying this edit featuring Albee Layer. Dan Norkunas complements the music well with his creative splicing of imagery. Frenetic time-lapse gives an eerie energy to what might otherwise be leisurely sequences, interspersed with slow-motion captures of heavy water and shot after shot of Albee slicing waves, catching air, getting massively barreled, and basically being Albee Layer. The line, “Don’t test me!” recurs throughout the song. Could it be one of the best surf edits ever? Watch the vid and decide for yourself.
