If anyone has any ideas as to what I could use/make to carry out this shot, your advice would be much appreciated.

Build you own jib using a teeter-totter design?
I once saw a Director/Cameraman on a commercial take a 2x10 plank apx 10 feet long, lay it accross a sawhorse, lay down on one end camera hand held, sand bags put on the other end until balanced.
It was suprising how steady the shot was. It worked almost as well as any jib he could have rented and since he was shooting on the beach the crew didn't have to carry a heavy piece of equipment.
