Also catch us on Tiki Central as HardBop (George) and TornadoTiki (Chris).


We've been working on our subtropical paradise here in Rockledge, Florida. We have a few tikis by local tiki artists, and we carved our peaked pergola (or tiki temple) to fit the theme. Chris has been busy making tiki mugs, and we'll soon post more pictures of those, too. Here's a taste.

See you at Hukilau!
