Hi Sam, yeah thought I would have a go on the beach next week . I've got an ally handle for it but will purchase a wood one as it'll be a bit chilly on the beach and I don't want me hand sticking to it! :))

Nice creation and should work fine but from my experience you will need to add more holes.
Best of luck with it.
Cheers
