Kelly Spilt Mustard On The Couch Again
Tyler Allen and his Gold Coast adventure.
Mr Allen’s surf fame is baffling.
He did one impersonation of Donald Trump, it went viral and next thing he knew he was being flown around the world to do interviews in other people’s voices. He was on the red carpet at the SURFER poll in December. At the Lowers event his face joined Mick Fanning, Steph Gilmore, Kelly Slater the rest of the top 34 on the wall behind the scaffolding. It was printed on canvas and for sale.
Three days ago at Greenmount I ran into him in the water. Tyler lives in LA and I’ve met and had relatively long conversations with him on at least six occasions. Every single time, he’s asked what my name is again. Which isn’t very offensive, as I’m very guilty of the making the awkward handshake, “Yeah, we’ve met before,” reintroduction. But every time I tell him my name is Morgan, he responds, “Stab! What’s up man?” This particular time he proceeded to speak to me strictly in an Australian accent.
“It’s my first surf in Oz, mate!”
He’s an odd duck. His impersonations are good (Kelly Slater and Occy being the highlights), and are apparently allowing him to travel on other people’s dime – which is truly the dream; and that’s commendable.
This time around, that dime was Surfstich‘s.
