Dirty Beach Sand Sculptures

London doesn’t have a beach, you say? I bet the dirtybeach.tv guys building sand sculptures down on South Bank beg to differ. They certainly make good use of the little strip that shows itself when the tide washes out. There’s a whole team of sculptors creating makeshift sand TVs and dragons and faces, having bonfires or sitting down on the newly-erected sofa in a top hat with a banjo and a can of beer, just chillin. They’re down there all the time so catch them whenever you like. With all the sun and shadows, it was difficult to get good pics, but here’s a few photos from last weekend to start it off. If you’ve got some of your own, add ’em to the Flickr pool.

  1. Hey,
    I started making sand sculptures about 4 years ago on that beach and now lots of people come down and copy what I do. The guy making the TV is called Ron. He makes the same thing every day and it’s really annoying now. He gets drunk all the time and last week got his mates to threaten to beat me up for no reason. He is a prize pratt.
    The guy with the sun in his eyes is Brad. He is much nicer.
    My name is sandy andy and I just built a new page for the sand crew on my site.
