Such an awesome group experience. JT was our instructor and he was the best. Highly recommend for families, friends, or even a work/team building exercise! Will definitely do this again.

8 of us had a great afternoon building the most amazing sandcastle. JT was a brilliant teacher. If you are in Del Mar it really is not to be missed. I can't recommend it enough. It was so much fun
