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 $20 Discount!

Tips&Tricks Special - $60-80

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!

The celebration lesson - $150-250 

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.

The "Chillin' with sandy feet" Lesson - $150

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.

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.
