How it Works

Choose between two different options. Here’s how it works:

1. Group Sand Castle Building Experience

Take your team building to the beach with our top rated LA Sand Castle Sculpting Experience! Our Bikes and Hikes LA concierge team will meet you at a beach destination of your choosing, where you’ll be introduced to our world-famous sand castle building instructor. You and your team will partake in a group sand castle building lesson, where you’ll learn the tricks of the trade and sharpen your sand castle skills. As you build, you’ll bond and mingle with your teammates, enjoying sun, sand, and surf on an unforgettable day. Don’t forget your camera on this ultimate team building activity!

2. Group Sand Castle Building Contest

For your next team building outing, foster a little healthy competition among your coworkers with our sandcastle building experience.

  • Our team of fun concierges (Bikes and Hikes LA!) will set up your sandcastle building stations on the beach for you prior to your arrival.
  • Once you arrive, prepare to get sandy! Our expert sand castle builder will do a group instruction, teaching you the tricks of the trade and sandcastle building basics.
  • Next, we’ll divide you into smaller teams, and you’ll compete to build the winning sandcastle creation. Prizes will be awarded based on categories such as:
      • Tallest
      • Most sand used
      • Best sculpture
      • Most gravity-defying build
      • Best detail
      • Best replica of an item, person or place
      • Best decorated (shells, seaweed etc.)
      • And many more!
  • While you’re building with your teams, our world-renowned sandcastle expert will stroll between teams and offer advice and pointers- think the Tim Gunn of the beach!
  • Once you’ve competed your sand sculptures, we’ll pull a judge from the beach, and announce a winner! (But everyone’s a winner when you book THIS epic group activity.)
  • This experience is designed for larger groups who want to build something really BIG – be it a castle, a beach billboard or a virtual living room, and it’s also an excellent idea for your next birthday party bonanza!
