Surf Tiki

Copyright Bill Reed 2007

In Maori mythology, Tane the God of forests creates the first man Tiki, then makes a wife to keep him company.

In Maori usage, Tiki is the word for large wooden carvings of roughly human form.
In English usage the word “Tiki” is usually followed by the word “Bar”.
