Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings

March 10, 2011

The Travel Channel is hosting a reality show, “Sand Guys,” featuring six sand sculptors who travel the world creating amazing pieces of art out of sand. The show will air 10 episodes starting in July. Last week, they unveiled their masterpiece on the beach at Manuel Antonio. They use 60 to 70 tons of sand for each creation. As can be seen in the picture at right, the sponsors of the event were Manuel Antonio’s Café Milagro and Arenas Del Mar resort, and Finca Rosa Blanca in the Central Valley. The artists are Matt Long, Andy Gertler, Sue McGrew, Morgan Rudloff, Rusty Croft and Kirk Rademaker. Check out their incredible artwork at www.canyoudigit.com, www.sandguys.com, www.sandsculptusa.com and www.sandissue.com.
