RFD TV The Texas Country Reporter
Sons of the Beach Sand Wizards
Visiting a friend today I watched Texas Country Reporter hosted by Bob Phillips on RFD TV and I was amazed by one of the artists presented.
Bob took us to South Padre Island, Texas where we met the Sons of the Beach Sand Wizards , Amazin’ Walter and his partner Sandy feet. They were working on the beach with the tide washing up only feet away, drifting toward the art piece they toiled to complete. When asked if Walter worried about the tides he said no. He and Sandy Feet realized that their art work would eventually be washed away. They said they were content with the pictures that captured their creations even though several day to weeks of crafting would eventually vanished into the ocean.
They were also asked if they had ever been called beach bums? They laughed and said, "All the time", agreeing with a smile that the title fit.
Sandy Feet and Amazin' Walter use only two ingredients, sand and water, to make their sand master pieces! They are the first known professional sand sculptors. They are best known for their arches, that they have now taught to countless others. As a matter of fact they spend much of their time teaching others this craft.
Their amazing creations have led them to travel the globe where they have been hired to make over 200 creations.
Take a look at the photo's and see if you are also amazed?
