Tri Bourne made a landscape-altering decision this winter, dumping Trevor Crabb and picking up Chaim Schalk instead. The results thus far haven’t backed up that decision, and our semi-monthly mailbag on SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball With Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter was chock full of questions about that decision. So our episode today put Bourne on the hot seat, answering the question: Does he regret dumping Trevor for Chaim? As well as:

  • Why doesn’t the AVP stream on YouTube anymore?
  • Is Sarah Sponcil coming back to the beach?
  • The fastest way young and developing players can become elite
  • And so much more.

Thank you as always for your questions and support! We love y’all.
