Sand castles have gone big time. There’s “Sand Masters” on the Travel Channel, building competitions such as the Sun & Sea Festival in Imperial Beach south of San Diego, and now, thanks to a former math teacher, you can attend “sandcastle school.”
San Diegan JT Estrela came up with the idea after getting laid off from his charter school job. He looked for work at night and spent his days sculpting in the sand at a local beach. He decided to combine his love of teaching and art by showing others how to work with the grainy medium. So he cashed in his 401k, signed up his first students, and founded San Diego Sand Castles. In a very short time, his classes in Del Mar rose to No. 1 on TripAdvisor.com’s “Top 10 Things to Do in San Diego” list. He hopes to expand operations to other area beaches soon.
