Welcome! You need to post some photos of your pontoon boats in the Tiki Boats thread:

We like to look.

Thank you Tikis. How do I value this tiki set for sale? It has been in the family since 1954. We live on the East Coast--how do I find someone with a genuine love for Tiki to buy it here? It also includes two original lamps and a coffee table. It is in perfect condition.

Why on Earth would you part with it?

There are plenty of us in New England, so you might not have to look far.

Hi guys,

I just joined after finding out about Tiki Central via my fellow Seattle area Tiki/MCM friend Sophista Tiki. I'm fairly new to the world of exotica, but try to soak it up whenever I can. Already in two vintage car clubs as well as learning photography, and going back to school soon, but hope to join in more tiki fun as I have the time!

Aloha. It's finally time to step forward and admit I have a tiki addiction.

It may be genetic. My grandfather was stationed at Pearl Harbor during wartime as a Navy diver and my father has made annual trips to the Marshall Islands on business for decades, bringing home some cool handmade stuff from the islands. I met Don Ho and got to hang out with him backstage after a show while on a vacation in Honolulu during my college years. Yes, he offered me some sparkling wine (with tiny bubbles).

My wife and I have hosted an annual tiki party in the San Francisco East Bay area since the early part of this decade, and my collection of tiki-esque stuff grew over the years until I couldn't contain it any longer. We now have a full-fledged tiki room in our home, complete with masks, vintage ceramic mugs, and vintage Hawaiian LPs.

I have finally decided to embrace my inner tiki and join Tiki Central. I am sure I have way more in common with everyone here than I would care to admit, and acknowledging this I suppose is the first step toward recovery? I feel very lucky to live in an area that is home to Smuggler's Cove and Forbidden Island. Martin Cate is like the second coming of a certain beachcomber who set us off on this course ... I look forward to meeting all of you, if I haven't already during my tiki bar travels. Cheers to you all, and aloha.

Hey everyone, Vince Martini here. I have been on Tiki Central, but like several on this thread, I forgot I had an account and then forgot my login info. But, I am back!

Going to Hukilau in June and I can't wait to meet some of my tiki family in Ft. Lauderdale. My buddy, Tim Moritz, lead guitarist of the incredible Reverburritos surf band will be joining me. Come find us and get a Reverburritos CD -- you won't be disappointed!

If any of you happen to be tiki bar owners, let me know. I am wanting to open my own place here and welcome tips and recommendations from everyone.

Shaken and slightly stirred - Vince Martini

Hello Everyone!

I accidentally have stumbled onto this forum on and off for a while. I thought now would be the time to join the community and embrace my love for all things tiki. I never realized how large of a community this is and glad to know that I'm not the only one! I look forward to interacting with everyone and hoping to meet new friends. I'm hoping I can make it out to Tiki Caliente or Tiki Oasis, keeping my fingers crossed!

Aloha guys! its Andy here from Liverpool, UK.. bit of an unusual location for a tiki head, but i lived in NZ between the age of 9 and 10, and became fascinated with Maori and Polynesian culture.. which quite clearly, i still am anyway, took up carving tikis so i thought i'd also join this fab website.. i will share photos of my carvings i gotta say this website is host to some fantastic carvers! you guys set the bar pretty high .. gives me something to aspire to,
anyway.. been using chisels for all the work uptil now, but I have just invested in a makita electric chainsaw, scares the hell out of me, but thats what i hope to be using shortly for the main carving work, so fingers crossed (if i can keep them) i will get the hang of it, and be able to produce larger carvings much quicker..
