Round Rock, Texas
A father and son duo, Ky and Jeff Terrell have enjoyed competing in sand carving events since 1999. Specializing in castles and dragons, they have traveled to California, Florida, and Canada. Both of them will tell you that Sand Fest in Port A. is their favorite event and only back surgery and the occasional knee surgery will keep them from attending.
“Taller, straighter, and there’s always next time!” accurately describes their enthusiasm for sand carving and competition. Mostly they enjoy competing together and hanging out with the master class sculptors who come to Port Aransas.
Ky is a retired Texas State Trooper and lives in Austin, Texas. He also enjoys cycling and building structures out of wood. His next project will be a tree house for Jeff’s kids.
Jeff lives in Round Rock, Texas and enjoys flying and crashing model airplanes. He hopes to raise a new generation of sand sculptors with three eager, active kids. He still enjoys showing his Dad how it’s done.
