Ia orana...good day.

'Been sniffing this site for a while and finally came ashore...

...it all started upon seeing "South Pacific" in film and on stage and watching "Adventures In Paradise" and reading Tales Of The South Pacific and Return To Paradise. And those 33 rpm records of "Hawaiian" music...

...and the appeal of Polynesian pop culture never went away. But now there is an e-Tiki culture and Tiki Magazine and new Tiki decour and art and music! How hip is that!?

'Looking forward to some good e-times here.

Hello-
New to your group. I am particularly passionate about vintage rattan furniture and have a set to sell. No pix yet, but it is ten pieces in total. Six band arm/four piece sectional sofa, end table no top (meant for glass),kidney bean shape coffee table w/ mahogany top, corner table with little triangular top piece w/ mahogany tops, two seven band wall shelves that take two glass shelves. I will post in "For Sale" section with pix and more detail.

Aloha!

I have fond childhood memories of leaping around the living room with my older sister as we tribal danced to our parents' "Taboo" LP (those shrunken heads captivated me as a youngster), so that may qualify me as a tiki aficionado from way back when, I don't know. At any rate, I think the tiki bug lay dormant until a few years ago when my wife and me threw our first luau and since then there's been no turning back.

I only recently found this forum and already I check in numerous times a day. Lots of great stuff here & I'm looking forward to discovering more!

Mahalo.

Hello everybody! A short history of how I got here:
In the 60's I caught the bug in the Tiki Room in D-Land. (grew up in Huntington Bch, lot's of surf influence) The 70's brought me to "Kona Hawaii" a dinner/show in O.C. CA. The 80's and 90's brought trips to Hawaii and Sailing to Catalina Island, visiting Luau Larry's and Dougs Harbor Reef. After moving back to the Central Coast,CA (after a short stint in MO) with my wife, Moana Kai Maestra, the dormant bug became more active. We made our own small tiki bar and decorated our small condo dining room. Now we are in full swing in our '63 atomic ranch house (competely retro interior) with its own tiki room addition, including the Brazilia furniture and Tiki mask made by Zac Efron (a former student of mine). I have always been interested in Exotica Music. My vinyl collection is quite large now. You could categorize my tastes as "anything Atomic."
I'm looking forward to being more Tiki involved now, even though, I must admit I have other non-tiki interests such as classic cars of the 50's and 60's(emphasis as a Shelby enthousiast, but enjoy em all), model trains, record collecting, and I play Low Brass instruments.

You have a Zac Efron-made tiki? Interesting - post a pic!

And you're a Shelby enthusiast? Sounds like you and our very own Queen Kamehameha might have something in common!

Welcome aboard!

Hello to all. I am a new member, but have been a lurker for quite a while. I thoroughly enjoy your passion, banter, humor, and especially your hunt for information. Those are things I enjoy (besides all things tiki) and I am sleuthing on now and will hopefully be able to add some tid-bits in the future, as I have with Critiki some in the past. Thanks! Chris

OK, this is like the 3rd or 4th account this person has created to post spam. It is time to get rid of this individual. Mods?

Aloha Everyone!

I've been a tiki lover ever since my early childhood growing up at the beach here in San Diego around all the tiki inspired places (I won't say how long ago that was, but it was kinda still in the day). Anyway, several trips to Hawaii only fueled my love of tiki and it's great to finally be in a community of like minds! Looking forward to meeting everyone!

Mahalo,

Rapa Nui Rich

Hello ! I must admit, I'm new to this culture, and I have much to learn. It started with an introduction to the Zombie, and my search to find a recipe. From there I stumbled onto this awesome world of food and drink, something I only ever seen in old movies.
Well, I can't wait to discover more of this site! See you around!
