Foreigners might be surprised to meet people that shake the stereotype of kangaroo-riding, shrimp-barbequing larrikins, but something tells me meeting Marlon Harrison would only reinforce it.
Marlon is a 17-year-old burnt-nosed grommet born and raised on the Gold Coast.
With a thick nasal cadence, an uncouth and abbreviated vernacular, and expert tube-riding skills, he fits every Gold Coast cliche like a glove.
Watch the Goldy grommet palm off mojitos from lightly clad women to pull into packed cones at Snapper.
