These sandcastle lessons are probably the best you can get before I had these lesson I just used the Premade sand castle packages but now I know what I can do with a straw and a skinny spatula.

Unique Adventure
Had so much fun with Andy and Max! We learned so much in the process and left feeling very confident we can properly build another sand castle. We had no idea what we were doing going into it and both Andy and Max were very patient teachers. If you are looking for a fun, unique adventure on South Padre Island, look no further. Great fun for families or couples!

Amazing Experience
Jun 2021
This was an amazing experience! We had 3 adults, and children aged 11, 7, and 4. Everyone had a great time and learned a lot. Andy made the class fun and educational for all. He was especially good at keeping the children engaged and having fun the entire time. I highly recommend this experience!

Fun times on the beach
May 2021
This was a lot of fun. Andy is a hoot. We learned a lot about how to prep the sand in order to make it more suitable for carving, which was interesting. We also came away from the lesson with a little bag of tools and we were able to have fun the next day using our new skills. Definitely recommend.
