sand sculptures blown up

boing boing links to these sand castle explosions in reverse.
Here we go again! For the second year in a row, "Sand Blasters: The Extreme Sand Sculpting Championship" brings a one-of-a-kind competition to Travel Channel. Paired off into teams of two, 16 of the best sand sculptors from across America dig in to picturesque Pacific Beach in San Diego, California, for the chance to win their share of $15,000 in prize money. But there's one obstacle standing in their way... Explosions! Over the course of this intense two-day competition, five of the eight sculptures are randomly selected for complete destruction by a Hollywood pyrotechnics crew. The ill-fated blast victims then have the remaining time to create another world-class work of art in order to contend for the title of Sand Blasters 2007 Extreme Sand Sculpting Champions. Sand Blasters 2007: The Extreme Sand Sculpting Championship premiers Sunday March 4th, 8:00 P.M. et/pt on the Travel Channel.

i see someone else likes to throw mud!

i wonder if Abba had time to make a few of the first sandcastles known while tinkering in the Garden. Perhaps Adam was a sandcastle gone bad.... ;)
