For securing the pole I used the leveling tripod base I mentioned before http://www.mediavr.com/levellingbase.jpg -- but in loose sand like this I'd found it wasnt very secure -- so I brought with me 3 detached tripod legs which I had taped to make a tight fit in the short legs of the base and then I stomped the extended legs into the sand. (You see on the short legs there are holes which I use for tent pegs sometimes to secure it in firm soil).
