Tiki looks way cool my friend!
Paipo, you should have seen the look on the x-ray guys at the airports when i was traveling abroad. Ha , it was too funny. I had a small resin tiki figure with me to explain what I carved with my tools.

AKUAE, thanks for posting that picture. It was a pleasure to met you french guys from the "Tiki Tribe" there.
You guys are really make a good job and it always looks like you have a lots of fun. Let the chips fly and
hold on spreading the word of tiki in Europe.

Paipo, hahah! Sandly, it will be not possible for me to take the chainsaw with me. I can take only 23 kg with me.
It´s really not easy to packa bag for 1 year with only 23 kg. But definitive I will bring my chiseles with me.
I looking forward on our upcoming carving session and to have some surf lessons with you. The countdown has just began.
That´s the last 8 days in Germany.

Tiki Diablo, thanks for the compliment. I hope all is fine. I often remembering me on the great Hukilau party, where we met us in 2008.

seeksurf, thanks so much. Yes you are right, that log was really heavy and we need 8 guys to pull it up.

Kai,

if you ever spend some time in Hokitika, the touristy "pounamu capital" of the south island, visit Steve at "Bonz'n'Stonz", he's a very nice guy who has the only workshop I know of, where you can carve pounamu with all the equipment provided. You propably have better options to carve over there, but if you're in the area, say hi to him. When I was there, he was very interested in non-maori tiki things for a change. If you talk/show him some of your work, I'm fairly sure you'll have a good time together !

Well, he will have access to a fully equipped stone workshop at some point when he gets down to my part of the country, but I can also recommend anyone visiting Hokitika to check Steve's studio out - he's a super nice guy and probably the only carver in NZ doing Solomon Islands style pieces (cause that's where he's from).

Kai is indeed now in NZ and has already clocked up some travel miles and tiki touring, but has had very intermittent internet access. I did get an update via email a little while back which I can now share - this was from his first stop in Auckland:









NZ Kauri...pretty cool eh?

Maybe he can change the thread title to "New Tikis from New Zealand"!

Great to see he's getting to know a few locals - wood like that doesnt grow on trees..

Im also hoping to catch up with Kai while he's here. Paipo and I are an hours drive apart these days but what better excuse for a get together? Kai will have to endure an intense stone-talk session.

Im glad you got to meet Steve G in Hokitika Traderbob, he's perhaps the nicest carver you will meet and serves as a great ambassador for his adopted home. Im not far from 'Hoki' so will be sure to show Kai around or at least point him in some worthwhile directions.
