Drinking Kona (and Maui Brew) with the Crabbs

This week’s episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, is another installment of one of our most popular recurring segments: Drinking Kona (and, in this case, Maui Brew) with the Crabbs. As you may have heard, Trevor Crabb is coming off his third straight Manhattan Beach Open victory – two straight with Tri Bourne – and Taylor Crabb has put together a heck of a season alongside AVP Rookie of the Year frontrunner, Taylor Sander. So we had all the boys on to drink some beers, and chat about all things beach volleyball, including: - How a Bourne or Crabb has been in every Manhattan Beach Open final since 2015! - How a childhood of pickup games at the Outrigger Canoe Club led all of them to their incredible success thus far on the AVP Tour - What ACTUALLY happened between Taylor Crabb and John Hyden at AVP Fort Lauderdale - Taylor Crabb’s first year with Taylor Sander And oh, so much more.

Ta.Crabb/Sander vs Partain/Lotman | AVP Manhattan Beach Open 2022

Taylor Crabb and Taylor Sander vs Miles Partain and Paul Lotman, two of beach volleyball's most creative and exciting teams compete in the quarterfinals of the AVP Manhattan Beach Open 2022. Try our favorite electrolyte mix, LMNT: http://drinklmnt.com/MCKIBBIN **NOTE**: We filmed and edited this match in the way we believe the sport of beach volleyball should be watched and experienced: intimate and up close to the action, players, and coaches so you can hear and feel the emotion, excitement and physicality of our sport, almost as if you were in the game. Shot with cinema cameras from five different angles with slow motion replay and cutting out the dead space between points. THIS is beach volleyball.
