Sand dollars: Rick and Capri Mungeam make a business out of sand sculptures

Published: Thursday, November 15, 2012 at 04:14 PM.

After taking a first place in Fort Myers’ World Championship, the couple decided it was time to settle in one place to build the business they had long dreamed of.

Naturally, they chose South Walton for its family friendly atmosphere and beautiful scenery.

“We decided this is where we wanted to plant our feet,” said Rick, who hasn’t had much time to plant his feet since.

Soon after moving to Santa Rosa Beach, “We basically hit the ground running,” said Capri of their 2012 summer, during which they held two or three lessons a day.

The couple’s sand-sculpting lessons are perfect for families with children, as well as businesses looking for an out-of-the-ordinary team-building exercise.

The couple also accepts private commissions and has helped more than a dozen head-over-heels men propose to their women using the whimsy of a sand sculpture.

And though these creations may cost upwards of $500 to commission, the Mungeams all but guarantee a yes.
