Aloha Everyone,

Found these today on Craigslist, they are out of my range, but damn! Maybe one of y'all would want them. They are in the Bay Area.

All those keywords, and he didn't include "sex". Just think how many surfers he must have missed!

That reminds me of the dollar store tikis, I wonder if they made these big ones too?

So I called the guy about these "tikis" and after much hesitation, he admitted that they aren't carved at all, but made from some kind of foam. I knew it just didn't add up.

This guy is a racketeer! He should be more up front when selling.

Perhaps they are carved from the rare Cocos Styrofoamus palm, found during the Cruise of the Kawa?

eight feet tall and only 60 lbs., had to be foam....or balsa wood
You can even tell by the photo (too smooth and rounded)- as crappy as it is. Another case of someone witholding info to try and get more people interested. People on ebay do it all the time...
