The Beach


Ben Gibson

About the Entry:

The Beach was built for Burning Man 2008 by Ben Gibson, Will Hill, Julian Luna, and various other people. It is a 2001 Ford F150 with the top chopped off and a steel platform built around it. The driver sits on a lifeguard stand thirteen feet in the air. The Beach features two EL Wire lined stripper pole palm trees, and an impressive sound system, and four propane powered tiki torches.  Not only has it been to Burning Man but it has been to Mardi Gras in Louisiana and Galveston several times as well as a random night out for dinner.  Another unique feature of The Beach is a fire cannon that shoots a 20 foot fire ball, because what is a beach party without a bon fire
