This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, is a re-run episode that we recorded back in August of 2018 with Jake Gibb. When we initially recorded this episode, Gibb was one day removed from the Manhattan Beach Open finals, where he and Taylor Crabb lost to Phil Dalhausser and Nick Lucena.

We figured now would be a great time to run it back, given that Gibb is in his final tournament of his storied career, competing at the World Tour Finals.

On this episode, Gibb discusses:

– How ignorance perhaps paved the way to him becoming one of the best American blockers of all-time

– The growth of his partnership with Taylor Crabb. This in particular is fun to look back upon, as Crabb was just beginning to come into his own in 2018 and is now one of the best defenders in the world.

– His growth curve as a professional beach volleyball player, and the importance of a growth mindset

– Two young Norwegian kids named Anders Mol and Christian Sorum

And, as always, much, much more:
