Sandy Feet Sand Castle Services has been the number one service for sand castle lessons, beach billboards, and other sand sculpture commissions for 20+ years in South Padre Island. Now, starting June 2019, we are excited to offer these services in Galveston, Texas. Headed by 10 year Sandy Feet veteran, Emerson, join him for a truly unique experience and have more fun on the beach forever.

The best option for most

Learn the fundamentals of sand sculpture and have a cool castle to show off in 2 hours. All equipment provided. Time and location of your choosing. For groups of up to 10. $220 for a 2 hour lesson. 1 hour lessons ($120) are available for small groups along the seawall, in most other cases 90 minutes or 2 hours is required.


Done this before?

Intermediate and advanced sand castle lessons are available for those who have had a lesson before or those that want to make something at a larger scale. I provide most of the equipment, but it's recommended that you have your own carving tools, since the project we start may not be completable in 2 hours. This lesson is not for the faint of heart! We will be moving a lot of sand so do your stretches and drink your redbull ;) Starts at $220 for a 2 hour lesson, 2 hour minimum.


More than 10 people?

How we approach lessons with larger groups can be catered to the size and desires of your group. Please just get in touch for more information :) All equipment provided. Time and location of your choosing. $220 for a 2 hour lesson + $10 per person beyond 10. 2 hour minimum (example: 2 hours with 14 people = $260)


Just want me to make it?

Sand sculptures are a great way to draw attention to an event, add some joy to a party, or even propose to your significant other. I can make a sculpture to fit your needs. Time and location of your choosing. I am able to travel to the greater Houston area and beyond for large scale projects. $120/hr 3 hour minimum, or get in touch for a quote. Please see my portfolio for examples of past projects.

Please note: You will be charged an additional $50 for activities on the Bolivar Peninsula, in Freeport, or in Surfside.

Emerson came loaded with tools to teach our group of 10 kids how to built a perfect sand castle. He was patient and our kids--even the big ones loved the experience. Our castle was the envy of the beach all day. Great memories for our kids.

Thank you! Our lesson with Emerson was an awesome experience and our family really enjoyed it. Of course there was sand everywhere but Emerson was patient and polite. Loved it! Worth EVERY penny.

First time to the beach with the children so I wanted to do it correctly! Emerson came out with tools and ready to go! The children were very involved and had fun building. He was very good at getting the kids to understand what to do. Thanks!
