Tiki F, seekSURF, Hewey, Ben...thanks, I wasn't sure how the stringers would come out. I masked off the area, and applied the stain lightly...no problems. The only thing is the wood itself had some pretty rough spots in the lighter colored area which is clearly visible. I could of reversed the stringer colors, and it might of hid the dark rot spots. Oh well, I still love it.

We've had weak waves for a while now. Now that surfintiki the surf god is complete, I noticed the forecast for next weekend is for 20 ft!!
Wooooo

OMG! Wow, incredible work! Awesome striping on the surf board! Even the signature is fantastic! I luv the little dimples on the base and the way the feet curve around over the edge. This one is truly over the top - great job!!

He would look right at home in the line-up at hookipa or honolua. I like the stripes on the board. Great job, tight work.

Surfintiki, surfintiki looks incredible nice job.
Did the stringer stain bleed much? or was it easy app?
How tall? board and head?

Thanks G & Benz!
S-surf: The stringer mask job worked easily, just used good masking tape, and blotted the stain from a rag lightly. I had it sanded pretty good too, so it was very smooth...not grainy. I'm sure the type of wood makes a difference. Mine was Birch. This tiki stands 3' 3" (39"), the surfboard extends 1 foot above his head. Can't wait to see yours done.

Right On, I will have to give the stringer a try.
I have only carved in alder.

Aloha, Surfintiki! This piece is pretty much flawless, and I say that after much scrutiny. I love it. The lettering on the back looks really tight too, and I know from experience that painting parts of a tiki is not as easy as you'd think, especially once the rest is all done and you're scared of screwing it up with the "final touches"! Congrats - one of your finest pieces for sure.

That's a great looking piece, Surfintiki. He'd be a real rager out on the waves! Beautiful color too.
