This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, features Silila Tucker, the most secret Hawaiian on the AVP Tour – so secret even Tri didn’t even know that Tucker spent a good chunk of his childhood summers on Oahu. We talked a ton about that, as well as:

Tucker’s HUGE 2022 season, one that ended with a win at the Laguna Open and a third at the Huntington Beach Tour Series

  • Tucker’s new partnership with Paul Lotman, and their plans to hit the international events this year
  • How Tucker approached volleyball, both beach and indoors, as a professional from day one
  • Why he made the decision to move to California, and the dividends it’s already paying

And, as always, so much more.
