It’s not everyday that one of the Rensselaer students can claim to be a professional sand sculptor… Alex sure can.

When not studying hard as a physics major Alex can be found on the beaches of California Leading corporate team building workshops.

Alex has been part of two US Open Sand Castle championship teams.

His NASA Space man sand castle carving at the 2011 event in Imperial Beach has become legendary.

Commodores Club of the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce hosts its 52nd Annual Sandcastle Contest: Supporting the Community

Sandcastle Sculptors

On October 6, 2013 the 52nd Annual Sandcastle Contest was held in Corona del Mar.  This event is put together every year by the Chamber of Commerce.  From young to old to professional sand sculptors like us, there was high participation from the community!

Spooky sand sculptures lined the shore for this years theme “Haunted Castles”.  Everything from witches to graveyards decorated the beach, even a few pumpkins and some ironic White House structures noting “now this is scary”.

Unfortunately, we were unable to attend this year due to prior commitments, but the event seemed to go off without a hitch and the designs were creative and well done.  We wanted to show recognition to the contest and the participants within the community since we couldn’t be there in person.  Hopefully we can make it out next year!  If you want more information on the contest winners and photos of the entrants, click here for their Facebook page.

With summer coming to an end, you may want to pack a bag and head up to Northern California where they are preparing for the 30th Annual Leap Sandcastle Contest at Ocean Beach.   This year’s theme “Masterpieces of Sand” is bound to bring out the creativity in the sculptures.  The event was originally scheduled in October but was rescheduled to November 9, 2013.  For more information or to enter the contest click here.

Archisand is excited for all of the upcoming events planned, and will be posting pictures of the upcoming, exciting projects we are working on.

So if you are looking to have your own sandcastle design made for a special event, or market your company keep Archisand in mind for all of your sand needs!

Greg Lebon Shows LA Times Man What It Takes to be One of the Best Sand Sculptors in the Country

Greg Lebon, one of the best sand sculptors in the country,  was featured by Chris Erkine of LA Times. In his article “Man About Time: The Sand Sorcerer’s Apprentice,”  Chris said that “what Michaelangelo is to marble, Lebon is to sand” and described him as one of the best in the business.

As Greg and Chris work on their sand creation, Greg illustrated his talent using a few of his well-worn sand sculpture tools to create something out damp sand. He has been into sand sculpting for thirty years, won in many competitions, and traveled to different parts of the world because of his sand sculpting skills.
Greg, a founding member of Archisand, has given numerous contributions and honor to the sand sculpting community. For the last seven out of ten years, Archisand has taken won first place in the Masters Ten-Man Division in the U.S. Open Sand Sculpture event held yearly at Imperial Beach, California. Aside from winning sand sculpting competitions, Greg and his team of sand sculpting artists have traveled to Japan, Canada, Mexico, and many places in the U.S. because of sand sculpture.
Aside from all his sand sculpting work and competitions, Greg does volunteer work for church and other agencies. As Erkine said, Greg is talented, nice, and patient. Greg may be one of the busiest sand sculpture artists,  but he also practices architecture in the State of California. You can see how his architectural skills complement his sand sculpting.
