Is This The New Face Of Surf Comedy?

His parody of The Don goes viral.

Media adores Trump. He’s Benghazi, the war on drugs, terror, Kayne, Kim, police brutality, Beyoncé’s twins and B Spears’ shaved head all rolled into one potent, pussy cupping mash.

Recently, introduced to us by Kook of the Day, was a man challenging Trump aficionado, Alec Baldwin, in the impression division. Channelling the idiosyncrasy of the 45th, Los Angeles’ Tyler Allen presents Donnie T, the surfer.

“Donald is old school,” Tyler tells Stab. “He still has a single fin mentality but is open to new ideas. He has a HUGE quiver. Last I checked his favourite board was a custom Slater Designs Tomo with a HUGE pic of his face on the deck. The deck is yellow. The bottom is red, white and blue with a picture of Andre Nickatina and 2 Pac because he loves their rapping. It’s 7’8 x 25” and 333 litres, but ‘still very, very responsive.’ Trump’s other favourite board right now has a picture of Kelly and AI paddling out together, except Kelly’s face is cut out and instead has his.”

Thumbing through Tyler’s IG unveils a bouquet of impersonations. Eg: The above clip of WSL Commish, Kieren Perrow, making the call. “Today’s a pretty easy call; it looks like shit actually, so we’re going to go ahead and give it the green light. The girl’s contest is on!” If you’re bored, go ahead and give @tylerallenvo a scroll.

“I’m tripping,” says Tyler on going surf viral. “I can’t believe all the people stoking out on my jokes. Everyone has been showing so much love and motivating me.”

And thus, we honour Tyler with this small, insipid trophy for his half-minute of digital fame!
