JT was our instructor and he was great! Before we started I was not feeling great about my abilities being on showcased on a public beach. My wife is the artistic one and JT adapted to our different needs beautifully. He came fully prepared and ready to do as much, or all, of the hard part, shoveling sand and carrying water, as we needed. His instruction style and support was was very friendly and clear. Throughout the process he would show us a couple of techniques and we would implement them on our castle and then he would show us something else at the next stage to try. We (I) never felt overwhelmed. Even before we were finished People were stopping and saying how great our castle was and asking if they could take pictures. We did this as part of our celebration of the 10th anniversary of our first date, and JT was able to help us incorporate that theme into our castle! Thank you JT for a wonderful experience!

Great time! Outside on the beach which was nice and JT was an all around great instructor! We went ahead and paid for parking instead of driving around. Would recommend!

Our sandcastle was a showstopper - everyone at the beach was stopping to take a look, take pictures, and ask about how they can participate. Simple techniques, but you'd never think of them on your own.

We're glad you ended up with a show stopper, and glad you found the techniques easy. Everyone really can do it! We hope to see you out on the sand!

I was visiting SD with family and we wanted to find a family friendly beach activity to do during the afternoon. After some google search, I stumbled upon San Diego Sand Castles. JT gave my family and me a fun afternoon sand castle building lesson. As well as teaching us such a fun activity, he was extremely friendly and outgoing. I’m so glad I found this hidden treasure. In addition, I learned that JT builds castles for other events including proposals, Birthdays, weddings, etc! I highly recommend his services for anyone:)

This was by far our favorite San Diego experience! My boyfriend and I had the best time building with Kristine. She was very experienced and was open to our suggestions/ artistic vision but also guided us very well. We spent about 3.5 hours building because we wanted to do lots of details and she did not hurry us one bit. Really enjoyed this, would be great for families or just adults!
