About Our Tools

The custom tools featured in our Basic & Deluxe sets were developed by the Sons of the Beach Sandcastle Wizards and designed by The Amazin' Walter McDonald. They have evolved over the years and are currently being assembled by hand right here on South Padre Island, TX. The Thermo-loc handles can be re-shaped to fit your hand: just throw them in a pot of boiling water until they are soft enough to reshape. (To keep them from melting together, refrain from stashing them in a clear cellophane bag in direct sunlight.) Scroll down to purchase tools individually.
