Yup! That's me with Regis & Kelly. Nice folks....

I have won a small amount of fame carving sand all over the world. But my fondest desire has been to open up a sandcastle school where my guests can enjoy spacious and comfortable accommodations while learning the joys of sandsculpting. The SandBox Inn is the realization of that dream!

The SandBox is a great place to stay when you are visiting South Padre Island -- but it is also what may be the world's first - and only - Sandcastle Academy.

Your hostess - sandy feet - is a master sand sculptor with over 20 years experience in sandcastle building instruction working with all sizes of groups and all levels of experience. (Sandcastle Lesson Information)

Here you will find the packages currently being offered. Please feel free to e-mail any questions you might have. And keep in mind that these lessons are available to anyone visiting SPI, so if you end up staying somewhere else, you can still book a lesson with sandy feet.

Package Availability: Sept. 5- Feb. 28, 2011.

Sandcastling is a painless way to learn about art, architecture and even physics. Guests of the SandBox Inn get a rare opportunity to spend quality beach time with a world-class master sand sculptor. I have taught literally thousands of people how to build towers, walls and arches using nothing but sand, water and some simple carving tools.

Package Description

Stay a week at the SandBox - get a FREE one-hour private sandcastle lesson; stay three nights or more and get a 50% discount on a lesson.


Cannot be combined with other offers/discounts. Offer subject to SandBox Inn availability. Here is my travel calendar - if I am out of town I will try to enlist the services of another qualified instructor. Weather can also be a factor - if it is cold or rainy or excessively windy, sandcastling is not much fun.

New in 2010: Starting after Labor Day, I am offering regularly-scheduled lessons in the sandbox and at "my" beach (access #16) for $10 per person. Read all about scheduled workshops here.

I also offer total-immersion sand sculpture experiences for folks who want to get more serious than just a one or two hour beginner lesson. Let's talk!
