“We start by digging a hole down to the water table. (If you dig too far from the shoreline you will probably have to dig a very deep hole… too close and you might get wiped out by waves or incoming tides.) Water is the glue that holds the sand together, so you want to have an easily accessible source. An alternative to digging a hole is to mix the sand and water in a bucket and build out of it instead. Everyone knows how to dribble! Our method is just a modified dribble technique using larger handfuls of sand – very WET sand.”
