Re: Reading "Hawaii" - oh, yeah .... many years ago. BIG book!! My sainted father was stationed in the South Seas (Guam and Pearl Harbor) during the war. He was "old school tiki", to the core, my old man! Came back from the war riding a 10'6" Dewey Weber surfboard, an old "Indian" motorcycle, and raised me on his very well mixed Mai Tais and Martin Denny music. Named our first boat (a fast little catamaran) - named - yep...."PapeToaTane". Had a cool little Tahitian tiki as a "masthead". While most of my little pals were buying Beatle albums, I was catching Julius Wechter live and tagging along with my uncle to the old Luau in Beverly Hills. And Wan-Q on Pico near Robertson! Great memories. Rotten Mai Tais!! Thanks to all for keeping this alive!

Aloha, and Blessings!

Aloha Papetoa!,

I was wondering from which war your father returned, as Dewey Weber didn't make surfboards until 1960.

WWII. Good point, though. Actually, I wasn't born until 1957, and the only board of his I ever saw was his giant Weber "log". As a matter of fact, when he died in 1993, I paddled out into icy-cold waters on that very same board (delaminated skag and all!) down in Baja to spread his ashes into the waves he loved so much. I truly dunno which board he brought back from Oahu to be honest. I know that he surfed Malibu (we lived in Venice) when I was a really little guy....I have some old pics somewhere of him holding me up bu the hands while standing on his old Weber board out on the sand near Paradise Cove.

As for me, I never had the desire to surf. Surrounded by surfers my whole life, I just couldn't get the hang of it. I know enough to know that I'm a natural goofy-foot (from my days riding skateboards) - but "good balance" was never my long suit.

I get seasick, too. I was pretty much a disappointment to dad when it came to water sports!

Very nice doing, PTT, to do that for your old man even though you were a non-boarder.

Just last Saturday (a week ago), Martin Denny's daughter had three paddlers bring her out in an outrigger and scattered his ashes beyond the reef.

Greetings to you all,

After seeing many of you at the Tiki Ti in Hollywood, I finally decided to join your fine and friendly group.

I've been a regular at the Tiki Ti for about nine years and like everybody else there, I miss Ray Buhen the founder very much. Fortunately for all of us, his family has taken up the torch and held it high, still mixing some of the finest drinks around.

I invite you all to try a Jim's Special the next time you're there, with a water back. It's a big, dry Mai Tai and a half made with an extra squeeze of fresh lime juice, two ounces of Meyers Jamaican Dark Rum and instead of light rum, 2 1/2 ounces of Casadores Tequila.

Aloha!

Jah Jim

Yay, Jah Jim finally made it! Jim is the smiling face that greets me every Wednesday after work when I finally make it into the enchanted enclave that is Tiki-Ti. Jah Jim has been to Tiki-Ti more times than you have, and he adores Tiki-Ti, but his real passion is reggae & rastafari. He has what is likely one of the world's largest reggae & Haile Selassie archives -- perhaps the largest, I can't say, not being an expert in such things. Welcome to TC, Jah Jim! Jah bless!

Hello everyone.
I have spent time reading the postings on Tiki Central and getting great Tiki tips. I just want to say how awesome this site is and "Howdy!!"
I would love to connect with other Tiki Folks in Arizona and beyond and I hope this is a first step.
I figure I lived in a trailer park called the Kon Tiki for 9 years of my childhood that has to be good for something.
