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.

ENJOY! (we sure did)
