Bottom comes out on top among sand sculptures
BEACH BUM: The Son is Rising by the Stoffregen family, of Clifton, was the winner in the family category of the Golden Bay Arts Sand Sculpture Extravaganza at Pohara on Sunday.

This "beach bum" has taken top prize at Pohara's annual Sand Sculpture Extravaganza.

Entitled The Son is Rising, the gumboot-shod sculpture was created by Clifton family Hans Stoffregen and his two sons Timo, 14, and Fabian, 11 for the competition in Golden Bay on Sunday.

"We only decided what to make just before the competition started. It was Timo's idea to make a big bum sticking out of the sand and the rest grew from that," Mr Stoffregen said.
