Hi Everyone!

I'm Scott. I live in Southern Cali. I've loved Tiki for over 20 years but have just begun collecting Tiki Mugs. Most of them are from Tiki Farm that I purchased at Oceanic Arts in Whittier and from a surf shop in the San Fernando Valley.

I'm a licensed California Realtor. I love 1964-1966 Mustangs. I own a 1966 Mustang that I've owned since 1996. I'm in the process of restoring it. I'd love to own a convertible 1966 Mustang so that is a goal for the future.

I also like to write. I have one completed manuscript for a novel and I've also written a feature-length screenplay.

Being lucky to liv in SoCal I love to go to the beach and hike in the moutains and even better to hike in the moutains that overlook the ocean.

That's a little about me.

Hey all I'm Julian aka Jetson. Either will do. I was born and raised in Palm Springs, I'm 22, and I've been into tiki stuff for as long as i can remember...well ok maybe since i was 11. Same thing. But I just got back from my first tiki oasis and heard about this great site, so i just had to join the first chance i got. I hope to make lots of new friends, like i did at tiki oasis. Here's to some new Ohana mambers!

Hello all. Like most, I've been bumping around here for awhile and finally decided to dive in.

Originally from Southern California. Caught the tiki buzz at a young age from visiting Disneyland's Enchanted Tiki Room. Spent my teenage years surfing up and down the SoCal coast from HB to T Street. Moved to San Diego in my early 20's. Unfortunately Tiki Oasis hadn't begun when I relocated to NoCal for work so I was never able to partake.

Unfortunately I've moved out to the MidSouth 3 1/2 yrs ago. Not a tiki in sight now except at my home. I need to live vicariously through y'all.

Look forward to talking with everyone.

Hi there,

I"m not really a *new* member, but I've not been a posting member. Something about being at my first Tiki Oasis (aside from the Sunday sale) has pushed me over the edge so I'm trying to be more active in the community.

My Tiki Oasis 9 photo set is here on flickr:

Looking forward to sharing info, mugs, drink recipes, and pictures.

Aloha Friends,

I have been a TC lurker and thought it was time to start posting. I have been inspired by the tiki culture and a tropical lifestyle for years. I lived in Hawaii for a number of years and enjoyed collecting vintage Hawaiiana items. TC ohana have inspired me to have a greater appreciation of collecting, given me great project ideas, and taught me to make a pretty darn good mai tai! (I think the last item was appreciated the most:-)

Thanks for your time and look forward to visiting.
Kona Maka

Aloha! I have always liked Tiki and mid-century modern stuff since I was a kid. I am an abstract artist, photographer, writer and ditch digger. Oh yea I like hot rods to. I recently bought the book "Tiki Modern" by Sven Kirsten and am half way through it. I bought it sight unseen and am truly impressed by the photos and research. I would recommend it to anyone who is into Tiki culture.

I found this place by searching for photos of The Islander restaurant in Stockton. I lived there as a teen and drive by the now condemned restaurant every day on my way home from work. I was born in Modesto and remember Mini’s Tiki restaurant as well. Sad that many old tiki places are torn down or are in disrepair. I hope to do some research and uncover some hidden tiki relics of the past in my area. So onward I go, inspired by Sven Kirsten, I now proclaim myself an urban archaeologist....

Hi all, I'm new here.

I live in Stockholm and am a frequent visitor of the local TIKI ROOM, where I'm also a regular DJ playing exotica, surf, cult soundtracks, easy listening etc.

I have been at some other European tiki bars (Barcelona, London) and am looking forward to my first trip to USA - Chicago and New York - in december.

I'm also experimenting at home with drink recipes, syrups etc.. getting better.

Looking forward to chatting with you.

Cheers, Magnus

Good to see a new Tiki agent reporting for the job, abstractiki, and I like your name, too. And I am happy to hear my book inspired you to become an active Tiki explorer. A good way to start is with James Teitelbaum's "Tiki Road Trip", which lists forgotten Tiki temples by the area. And when you're done with Tiki Modern, you're gonna have to get my previous effort, The Book of Tiki. It's out of print, but at the moment you can get a used-but-new-condition copy for under 50.- bucks on Amazon, at times the new ones are around twice that much.
