This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, features the hottest team from 2021 on the AVP Tour, Kristen Nuss and Taryn Kloth.

What a tear they were on in 2021. They finished the NCAA season with LSU undefeated, a considerable accomplishment considering their opponents on court one. Then they won the first AVP they played in as a team, claiming gold in Atlanta, which was succeeded by a fifth-place finish in Manhattan Beach and a third in Chicago.

But they’re more than just good players, these two: They’re a team. A real one. The only pair who stuck together from 2021 and into the 2022 season. We chat about that, and much more on the podcast, discussing:

  • Their month-long training camp in Hermosa Beach, California
  • Their thoughts on their wildly successful 2021 season
  • Why they’re so dedicated to staying with each other, even if that means a long, long climb up the FIVB ladder
  • How they’re trying to change the narrative of beach volleyball, both as players and in the location in which they’re playing (Louisiana)

And, as always, much, much more.

Such a blast with Kristen and Taryn, who you can find on Instagram at:
