True... but the really sexual dancing and excitement comes from the male dancers at the Mai Kai. I always think the women kinda seem tame in comparison to the men in their show. My wife and I would love to see more of that at Tiki Oasis too. Maybe some male fire dancers or muscle heads lifting weights by the pool, or men in the fashion shows. Just to mix it up a little bit.

Otto, THANKS for the amazing event. My interest in tiki was beginning to wane a little, and you brought me back from the abyss.

hot sex it what makes those little distractions running around the TO stage... can't live with'em - life don't go on with out'em...

i'll refrain from sharing the pictures... But when Zandora's talents were unleashed on the main stage before the sunset in 2010, i was more then uncomfortable, However the 'artist' in me got the hugest kick out of watching the reaction of the crowd. Every person male/female that looked over 50 was looking everywhere else but at the direction of the stage and Zandora's ample Zang'gerzzzz....

Oooo? look at the people way up there on the balcony... Oooo look over your shoulder, was a pretty sunset....

That said, we have moved the Burlesque to be as late as possible in the evening. We have a 10pm curfew so if the kids stay up til 9 or 10 they are going to see Burlesque. Next year we will move some of the Burlesque indoors after hours but not all of it. Parents beware!

I think that's a perfect compromise!
Yes, please add some of Mae West's muscle men and/or fire dancers to the show! A little something for everyone....

I see Tiki Oasis as that anyway, something for everyone. I love seeing old and new friends from seasons past that I don't get to see often enough. As a vendor, I really enjoy meeting and talking with so many of the attendees. I think for me going forward, I will probably attend without vending so I can get to some of the seminars and the car show, really spend some time checking out all the great art for sale (not make it a 15 minute dash while someone else tends the booth!), enjoy the pool, sleep in, etc. And nothing against the Crowne Plaza, but I'll probably stay elsewhere so I can leave the craziness when I'm ready to and get a full night's sleep! You nutty kids...

Highlights for us on our 4th Tiki Oasis:

*Creepxotica while I was floating in the pool
*Big Sandy and Los Straightjackets
*Car Show (how do I show my car next year???, PM me)
*laughing after hearing "Tequila" played by almost every band and then like 40 times by the DJ on Sunday morning.
*meeting my neighbors at 3:20am when I popped out of my room (barely dressed) during the fire alarm
*I got the best balcony ever this year and even got a fridge and microwave without askin!
*Crowne Plaza staff
*Friday night dance party
*Cocktail CSI (even though it was really late to start)
*watching go go dancers from behind while sitting in the jacuzzi with a cocktail
*the chance to step away for some horrible stuff going on in my life, even if for just 3 days.

Wishes for 2012:

*the same balcony room or similar
*entry in the car show
*more spending money (shot my wad on room and tickets, had NO money for vendors this year)
*more food options? ice cream? shave ice?
*next year I am going to pack bubbles, I always forget.
*and yeah I hate to say it but I am not all that crazy about all the kids at this event. Seems like that is a 50/50 argument around here though. No right answer I guess.

I agree with Otto, and I also understand concern from audience members/parents. But as I said before when I gave my warning for tiki highway attendees... be aware of when burlesquers go on, if this is something that offends you or your children then don't expose them to it. That being said, it was a huge honor to perform burlesque and to go on first... while standing side stage I had little girls wave to me which was fun and awkward at the same time. I figured they must have just seen me as they would a Disney princess, and my act probably didn't phase them much, because they were dancing a long to my song.
Maybe next year they should just give more of a "warning" announcement so parents and put the kiddies to bed????
All in all... tiki oasis= amazing!!!!!!!

What an amazing 4 days!

The event was just fantastic- I have nothing but admiration for all those who helped put this together~

Thanks to Tiki Joe's Ocean for letting me play with fire on stage for 'em, to Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School For keeping me still for 3 hours (not an easy task! haha!), and to Swanky for inviting me to reprise my role as the 'Mai-Kai Mystery Girl' for the Mai-Kai Symposium. What a thrill~ It had been almost 9 years since I had performed that dance at the Mai-Kai during my dancing days there!! Sincerely hope I did the role justice...

Gracias entirely so mucho to Otto & Baby Doe- you have made so many people happy, working so hard to put this together every year-You and your staff are tremendous. Mahalo nui loa for making me a part of this great event!

It was such a pleasure performing for the Tiki Oasis crowds- Your kind words and warm reception only make me want to do even more for the next time- believe me-- I WILL do more!! LOOKOUT!

Thanks aplenty to Tangaroa Ru for taking such good care of this waterlogged nutter, and for being such an amazing room mate at the 'Sea Hag Suite'~
Thanks also to Crazy Al for being such the Tiki-Chivalric Knight to this Exoticat/Aquaticat Damsel. ~*My Hero!~*

Can't stop smiling--- Mahalo to all!

Much aloha,
Your AquaBondGirl~

The Mai Kai's Hula girls are amazing to watch!


Way less sexual than burlesque, but still more modern and exciting than a super traditional, ancient hula dance. This would be a fantastic compromise for a daytime show. I see this idea akin to the traditional Mariachi band that had the pleasure of seeing this year (great idea, by the way!!)

I like the suggestion for there to be a menagerie of acts on stage. Silly beefcake dudes and/or fire-dancers or fire-spinners would be incredible.
-What about a vintage swimsuit contest; one for both men and women?
-Maybe even put together a little spy vs. spy comedy act on stage to go with the new theme?
-Someone else applauded my idea about the non-alcoholic bar that could serve soda pop, energy drinks, water bottles and mocktails...anyone else think that's a noteworthy idea? Would the hotel allow this?

Let's stick to music on the main stage. I was relaxing until a hyped up dolt ran up and blocked my view trying to get a photo of a pastie. Lets save the shenanigans for the bungalows, room parties or Bali Hai stage. I almost spilled my rum. How uncouth.

Oasis was such a blast. But not for everybody.

I found these pieces of a broken moai mug outside of Sabu The Coconut Boy's room party

It looks like someone's shattered dreams

(Not to be confused with the broken mug incident with the cut leg)

Not to put a damper on all the great input and recap posts here but the above reminded me that some of you may be wondering about the resolution of the FEW unpleasant incidences that occurred

The hotel was not happy about them but totally understanding and agree that 3 or 4 incidents is very tiny for such a large event.
The fallout is we will have almost double security which sucks door us ($$) and also creates a bad visual (I'd rather see great Aloha shirts and dolls dressed up with flowers in their hair than a security uniform!) but it means everyone will be able to party in peace

Two folks were asked not return for their digressions

The bleeding leg victim Tracy is doing fine after several hours in ER

Tomorrow night I will reveal the names of the sexist homophobic La Jolla surfers who started the elevator fight. If anyone has pics please post them

I think these few instances could be easily avoided if the Tiki community steps up a bit. I noticed little things that would help, like if you see some joker at a room party and he gets drinks without tipping, ask that person to leave. We have to hold people accountable in this community if we are ever going to rid ourselves of the clowns that just don't get it. If there are people doing things that you know are lame, say something to them. I do love this scene and noticed a big part of what makes it cool is that there are no "tough guy" types. I saw one younger guy trying to act tough, giving people the mad dog stare. No one bothered to respond to him.This basically invalidated his whole deal and he lightened up. No one has time for frat mentality b.s. I, for one, have no problem asking people to chill when they get out of line. I'm no tough guy. Anyone who knows me knows I do my best to turn the other cheek. I also have no problem protecting a scene that I enjoy and am involved heavily in. This sentiment isn't just for Tiki Oasis, it goes for any event I attend. Tiki Oasis is a big deal. I love it and will continue to attend and do my part to keep it as TC as I can. Maybe everyone needs to ask themselves if the scene is something they love do they want to help correct the problems or just complain and hope others will take care of it? I'm not suggesting anything stupid like violence. I'm suggesting being vocal at the events themselves and confronting negative aspects to try and resolve them.
Whew! That was exhausting.
Peace with every step.

Matt, thanks for stating what I had sort of thought was obvious. If you see someone who is acting inappropriate don't walk away or ignore them. Contact hotel security, Tiki Oasis security coordinator Dr. Shocker, or Tiki Oasis security. Or at the very least, take their picture and post it so we all know who they are.

On that note, here are names and photos of the four jokers who made sexist comments and anti-gay comments and started an unprovoked fight that resulted in an innocent bystander going to the emergency room:
Mark Schnieder, Hayden Britten, Trevor Watkins - aka Abalone Watkins, and Sterling Weatherley

none of these guys are wearing wristbands!


here are stills from the video. If you know any of these people please PM me
Does anyone recognize Lafitte C-Way Marina T-shirt or this guys tattoos?

Here's what Mark Schneider looks like

Here are Sterling's tattoos

Sterling apparently is on the Tap Room surf team

here are a couple videos of him, this one shot by a guy named Tosh from PB



Here is Abalone Watkins facebook page

Mark's facebook page
