LakeSurfer,

It must be great having a house full epic tikis. I find that I can spend hours staring at tikis when there are in the house, I become a tiki zombie . Are the Great Lakes supplying you with any surf these days, or is it frozen stiff? Some fun waves at the Hook in Santa Cruz this morning even though I was getting pelted with rain and wind.

Will





I hear ya Will... some I keep for myself to sit and stare at... but sometimes they start crowding you out and you have to send them on their way...

The lake has a good deal of ice on the shore, but Spring is coming!
I got a good surf fix a couple weeks ago in the form of a surfari with my surf club. We rented a house in San Clemente for a week and surfed head high SanO for three days. After that the wind went onshore for most of the week, but we're used to that.
The next sessions that week were spent at Grandview, Swami's and Oceanside... then a sunst session at T-Street to finish off the trip.

I left full of stoke and new energy to crank out some new work. It's amazing what a week of surf can do for you!



Thanks guys!

Huh, that's interesting. I thought it was just me that stared at the tikis. I actually find it more entertaining than the tele.

Great little guys, lake. You're really crankin' 'em out. I wish I could do that. I have too many in various stages sitting around waiting for me to get back to them.

You loading them up and bringing them to oasis?

Glad you got some surf in. Even on the worst day ever, once you hit the water...it's all good!

I've enjoyed your work. You need to post more often. I'd like to see some close ups of that litter of tikis.
Nice website by the way.

garage? Very impressive...wish you were going to Coontiki!

Mahalos McTiki, conga and Ben!

Conga... I gotta sweep up after every session so when I get back down there its like a fresh start. Tools are sharpened and layed out...
eventually everything is all over the place and there's wood chips everywhere.

Ben, as always the challenge is to go as small as I can and as much detail as I can... they are a fun diversion!
Most of the new wood has sat over the winter... after debarking last week I found I had some nice pieces.

Here's a new project... have to finish before Friday...
The local tiki bar, Foundation,is in an old duplex. The lower half is the bar. There is an ugly pole that helps hold the 2nd floor up... I'm doing a 4 panel carved box to cover it up.

It was great getting back outside again to carve after the long winter!
Halfway through today's progress on two of the panels...
