Our family came to take an hour lesson with Andy! We had a blast! For less than the cost of dinner out on the island, we had so much fun! Our 18 and 20 year old guys loved it too! Had a great time building castles at the lesson, and then again on the beach in front of our condo! Sending my 70+ year old parents here next! THANKS ANDY!!!

It was a great experience to learn about sand castle from Andy. We enjoyed our lesson very much. It was fun for everyone. My three year old had fun too. We will do this again:-)))

We had a great time learing how to make sandcastles and creating our own masterpieces. It was the highlight of our trip. I would recommend this to everyone visting South Padre Island. Thanks Andy for a great time. We will definitely be back for another lesson.

Our two families with five boys ages 5-10 and four adults spent a great hour+ with Andy. He taught them all they needed to know in a fun environment. They boys took what they learned and built a castle on the beach the next day and hope to try it at home once the snow melts. Thanks Andy for a great afternoon!

My wife, 13 year old daughter and I did a 2 hour session with Andy, and enjoyed every minute. Andy is a very skilled sculptor (believe it or not a carving of his was unveiled by Queen Elizabeth). His Australian accent and laid back, fun manner make the time well worth the reasonable pricing. We would recommend this to anyone--a top event for us on our South Padre Island trip.
