I actually have only seen one of his sand castles in person - here's the link to his site:

There's another sandcastle on that particular page. Hmmmm, Todd is definitely no longer dark haired. Anyway - I virtually never see these things since he travels about the country doing sand sculpture.

There's Sleeping Beauty's castle for you.

Lego castle do last longer, but it is the fleeting nature of a sandcastle that adds to its beauty. All that work for a work of art that will disappear usually within hours of completion is a testament to the artists drive to create. Thanks for posting those pictures, awe-inspiring to say the least.

I know that for some applications, sand has been either provided or shipped in - he once mentioned that at a hotel in Hawaii they provided high quality sand that was basically dumped on top of the regular sand. Others he just used what was there. In the above two pictures, the first was native soil, the second was sand shipped into a mall, presumably filtered. I never really asked him - the only thing I asked was if he sprayed the sand with starch to help it hold its shape and he said no.

Oh, and thanks for splitting this off into its own topic - this was supposed to be just a humorous one-shot castle-envy post.
