ok, I just looked at the wave forecast site & it shows a little waist high pulse Saturday afternoon....

If I get to hang out all morning on Saturday carving tikis, and then longboard some little waves in the afternoon, all in the same spot, with a full bar & hot chicks, well, I may just start believing in Santa Claus.

Santa isn't real?

Get some sliders and keep your eyes on your work!

I stopped believing in Santa quite sometime ago.

I do however believe that you may just have the perfect day in your forecast...TIKI's, surf and women...does it get any better?

have fun and happy carving!

yep, gulfside....just west of bradenton.

So wow, today my business pretty much exploded. I've become quite popular in Anna Maria Island. I now have several project waiting on me, both commercial and residential. I'm very excited.

None of this would have been possible without this website and all of the direction and inspiration I get here on a regular basis.

I'm very thankful for all of this.

yeah, yeah. I know. I look ridiculous.

Surviving off of selling tikis and restoring old bicycles has been so lucrative I've lost 20 lbs!

None of my clothes fit anymore. I look like one of the homies walking around holding my pants up.

Gawd.

Anyway, here's a couple of dolphin jumping up to a sun. I guess the owner got wind of all of the money being spent on tikis and pulled the plug, so looks like I'm outa there & on to the next job.




Also, here's a shot of my buddy's son, Ethan. They came out to the beach to hang out & kinda support my whole deal down there. Anyway, the kid is silent, but totally lingering, like, for a long time, so finally I just threw some tools in his hands and gave him some little tasks & had him carve out a little fish (I helped a little) and I think he did great. He was super stoked & his mom says he wants to make a tiki for his school art project.

Bummer! Kinda funny in a way... "oh yeah we didn't tell you we commissioned all these tikis?!" Well good luck on the next gig.

Great job on the fish Ethan!

So who's idea was it for the dolphins? Looks like a challenge getting two whole dolphin outta that tree.

well, every news channel has come out of the woodwork and they're all over me, and since ABC channel 7 in Sarasota just interviewed me behind the restaurant and I'm going to be on the news at 5, and more media people want to come out and interview me....well, let's just say it looks like the job is back on, and I'll be doing more work at their other restaurants. Nothing like a few t.v. cameras t change people's minds....

They've been talking about me all week on Fox 13, and baynews 9 just called & they're coming over the weekend.

wow...my head is spinning...
