I started sculpting sand 23 years ago, competing in the Sand-Blast, a sand sculpture contest held in Fort Lauderdale, Florida where I grew up. The past 15 years professional sand & snow sculpture has been my primary occupation, taking myself and/or my team to many Caribbean islands, Hawaii, South Africa, Australia, Canada, Mexico, South America, Europe, the MidEast and all throughout the United States creating projects that cause extensive media coverage & foot traffic for our clients. Shopping centers, conventions, fairs, festivals, and theme parks have been our staple clients... but throughout the years there have also been some singularly unique sculptures
|All we use is sand and water, no cement or fixatives are mixed in. The sand is compacted into wood forms at first, but all forms are removed as the sand within is sculpted from the top, down.|
We use many different tools to carve: margin trowels, spreaders, cake decorator spatulas... even dental instruments for the real detail stuff.
We never create the exact same sculpture twice.

Maui Wowee is a nice laid back arcade game with a summery soundtrack (Reggae for sure) for those long hot summer nights. And boy is it hot here. Air con is my friend.
Some Jamaican InfoThe popoularest newspaper is The Daily Gleaner, offers daily news, sports, business, entertainment and tourism information for the island.
Or listen to Live Jamaican Radio, 24x7.
|A very good and huge portal site is Jamaica online - takes a real look at Jamaica and Jamaican culture. With recipes, guides to Patois (learning Patois ), Reggae, Rastafari, Jamaica photos, how to be a tourist, Negril, Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, Port Antonio, Kingston, Mandeville and much more. Use the channels on the left side.|
Jamaica does lie in the hurricane belt, and the official hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30, with August and September being the peak months. Since hurricane Ivan (2004), and Gilbert (1988), the Jamaican people are afraid the island could be affected by a new hurricane. Therefore the waether report is very important. Check also the Hurricane Tips.
Another very good resource about the weather and the storms (not only for Jamaica) is weather.com - local weather forecasts, radar, videos and reports from The Weather Channel and Hurricane Central.
|Of course, my favorite sound right now is Reggae-Music, especially Chuck Fenda (also know as Chuck Fender or Chuck Fendah). His songs are of the reggae/dub genre. Good songs are "I swear", "Poor people cry" and "Better days" all from the "Better days" album.|
All day long I listened this one: Poor people cry
Here is The Official Chuck Fenda Website.
