Thank you for the kind words, everyone. It's responses like those that keep me going. I do truly appreciate it. Ben, Ona I got more in the works, just need to focus on one and finish them. I have too many at different stages. Mooney - I've been here, just not posting my stuff. Hopefully they'll be some more soon. Conga - I did this guy right before christmas, he was a gift I was commisioned to carve for an avid surfer.

Don't upset NALU! Waves can be gentle or destructive!

Aloha again Brah!
Shootz brah! I have to say that "nalu" really hits me in a certain way that warms this mokes heart! Your style brings me right back to being a keiki in Hawaii! Your work has a very late 60's/early 70's Hawaiian kine look & feel to it! I also love your typography on the Tiki...Really makes me feel like a kid again bruddah! You have to love a carving that makes you feel like I feel!

Is Nalu sold? Id love to display him in our gallery up here in Pasadena if youd like to work out a consignment deal? Let me know cuz!!

Again, I love your work brah, love it!

Great stuff, Polynesiac. Digging the 2 tone, rope, but most of all, the design.

THanks for the comments, everyone!
kaha - WOW! what a great offer, I'd totally jump on that...only the tiki is gone. He is happily residing with his new caretaker. Let's see if we can work something out with future stuff. I'll pm ya

Dale - really painful burrito movement? Well...I suppose that's a wave of some sort...

good save on the double post!

surfin' - I hope that cape cod surf starts pumping. wear a wet suit!

Aaron - Aaron rocks! (howz the redwood?)

john - thanks, here ya go:

the back top (on the headress)


The back on the base:


Hewey - Thanks for the props, bro

Tanks for peepin'!
