Meet Rusty Croft. He builds sandcastles for a living. Yes, that is a real career, especially when your clientele include Silicon Valley and other large commercial entities wanting to make a unique advertising venture. Croft’s love of the sandcastle arts began in 1997 when he was part of a team attempting to then build the world’s largest sandcastle sculpture titled “The Lost City of Atlantis”. Now, Croft is bidding to officially, Guinness World Records approved, largest sandcastle in the world. For his canvas he chose the beach of Niteroi, Brazil right across the bay from another wonder sculpture “Cristo Redentor” (Christ the Redeemer). The towering skyscraper creation required 20 truckloads of specialized sand that doesn’t disintegrate in wind and rain. It took a week to construct and measures 39ft tall.
The castle was sponsored by two American companies who wish to expand into Brazil markets.
