Lucinda Weregna

Lucinda “sandy feet” Wierenga

South Padre Island, Texas


Lucinda has won a modest amount of international fame with her sand sculpting skills, carving at major contests and festivals world over since 1987. She has taught generations of SPI visitors how to build a better sandcastle — and has reached untold numbers more with her best-selling book, “Sand Castles Made Simple.” She helped establish SPI Sandcastle Days back in 1987, and she continues to be an event organizer and competitor.
The South Padre Island Sandcastle Trai.

Established by Lucinda in 2012, this collection of sculptures created from local sand and carved by some of the most talented sculptors on the planet, is truly unique. Thanks to South Padre’s temperate clime and a talented crew of local sculptors, SPI is able to maintain these “semi-permanent” art installations for visitors to enjoy year-round. Read about the sculptures and the artists who created them at sandcastletrail.com.


Over the past four years, Lucinda’s company - sandy feet sandcastle services - has organized and created large, multi-sculpture exhibits in such locales as The San Antonio Livestock Show & Rodeo, as well as the South Padre Island Holiday Sandcastle Village — an ever-changing sand sculpture gallery featuring the works of some of the most talented artists on the planet.
