Formerly known as "Castles & Cocktails" - Let sandy feet (aka "Lucinda") entertain you! I will build you a pretty sculpture; you can jump in and help if you feel so moved. I can talk about the history of SPI, or of sand sculpture, or of sand sculpture on SPI - I have been involved in the global sand sculpture community for over 35 years, and I have stories....
Alternatively, I can happily build and carve away while you and your friends/family visit with each other. I will leave you with a customized sculpture tailored to your group's special interests. An island cultural experience!
Available after 5 PM most days. BYO beach blanket and beverages of choice; I'll bring enough carving tools for everyone.
Families and Friends
You will learn basic softpack, hard pack and hand stacking techniques and learn how to combine these structures into castles. Carve doors, windows and winding staircases; lettering basics - and end up with a great photo-op!
We will be happy to meet you at any beach within the city limits of South Padre Island - or meet us at Beach Access #16 (Neptune Circle) for a $30 Discount!
For all ages
Learn the basics of getting sand to stand! You will build towers & walls -- concentrating on building but with an introduction to carving using common items everyone has or can easily find. Learn all the tricks and skills you need to build a great castle.
This is the most popular of sandy feet sandcastle lessons. More advanced skills and plenty of hands-on time means that we can get you well on the way to a fairly-impressive castle. We will either leave you with a finished piece worthy of multiple photos, or we will leave some tools behind so that you can finish it yourselves -- send us pictures!
Kids & Adults
Grandma is turning 80! Mom & Dad are celebrating a big anniversary! It's a bachelorette beach party! Let us come build a cake or a heart or a fish or a star, etc. that can turn into a beach billboard featuring your message -- while we coach your friends and family members to help create the rest of the sculpture by jumping in whenever they feel comfy doing so. End result will be a finished billboard sculpture, perfect for a group photo.
Older Kids - Adults - Corporate Teams
"Go Big or Go Home!" Whether you are a corporation or a family, working together for a common goal is a desirable outcome -- especially when it happens on the beach! If you want to build something BIG and are part of a larger group of adults and/or big kids, this is the activity for you. I will meet you on the beach with a cart full of equipment to help you build something amazing - including a message, name or logo if desired. We strongly recommend that you take the T&T or Sandcastling 101 lesson prior. Expect to sweat!
have more fun on the beach forever....!
