We had a great time with college aged kids. JT was a terrific instructor. Our friends could not believe we actually built such an impressive sandcastle!

I brought my dad and his father out for sandcastle building for Father's Day. They've since both told me it was the most memorable Father's Day they ever had. We had JT as an instructor and he showed us/provided us with everything we needed to build our very own professional sandcastle. He had tons of tips and how to make the coolest features.

The experience was very hands on - from building the main columns to the finishing details. JT showed us where the best sand is and explained why some sand is better than others, then helped us build a three tier castle about 5' in height. He provided us with small carving tools to make staircases, windows, ledges, rooftops, and even the brickwork on the sides of the castles. We also made auxiliary towers and he showed us the best way to make bridges across to them.

In short, JT was an amazing instructor/co-builder and the experience will never be forgotten.

I loved learning all of the pro-techniques for building amazing sandcastles! Any and all ages could do it, we had a lot of fun building two huge multi-tiered sandcastles and even a huge bridge from one to the other! Would really recommend it to anyone looking to have a fun day at the beach!
