Tyler grew up in Shawnee where he graduated from high school. He started The Surf Bar in October of 2018 and opened in November of 2018. He (luckily) got his wife, Westie, to marry him in 2021. Westie has helped fill in where needed until she became the bookkeeper in April of 2022. Tyler spends the day to day looking at the big picture of the company, whether that’s marketing ideas, talking with the team, or talking with the rest of the corporate to find ways to make the company better.

Fun Fact: He has a sick YouTube video about some of the trips he’s been on (you should definitely watch it).
