SANDCASTLE SUCCESS: WE ARE WAVE MAKERS!

share share share share share share

This past weekend we hit Ocean Beach again, for the 4th consecutive year competing in the Leap Sandcastle Classic. Teamed with Taylor Design, Interface Engineering, Audio Visual Design Group, and BKF Engineers; we worked with students from Lafayette Elementary in San Francisco, building a sandcastle inspired from their creative minds. (Read about the evolution of our final sandcastle design here.)

After a dreary 8am start, through wind and rain; the team lived up to their name — making waves by taking away the coveted Best in Show 1st Place trophy! A huge and well deserved congratulations!

“This is my 4th year coming out for the LEAP Sandcastle competition. It is something I look forward to every year. The energy, the participation, and the joy from the all the kids makes this an event I want to be continue to be a part of. All the kids involved were so engaged and really passionate about the quality of the sandcastle, that being a captain was a blast! We had an extremely successful day capped off by a 1st place trophy! My thanks go out to Lafayette for being so much fun to work with, the parents, and the other Truebeck, Taylor, and Interface Engineering volunteers for contributing to a successful sandcastle.”

Thank you to everyone who volunteered and brought their friends and family. It was wonderful to see so many Truebeck’s out there ‘making waves’ and having fun!
