This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, features Maddison McKibbin, one of the biggest – if not the biggest, alongside his brother, Riley McKibbin – trailblazers in the world of beach volleyball content. Together, the McKibbins founded and have grown the McKibbin Brothers YouTube Channel to more than 100,000 subscribers, developing one of the biggest, most loyal, followings of any beach volleyball team in the world.

On this episode, we caught up with Maddison, chatting:

  • The absurd growth in the past five years of the McKibbin brothers
  • How Maddison and Riley flipped the narrative of ‘win first, develop content second’ and scored big time because of it
  • The climate and marketplace of beach volleyball
  • What plans and ideas the McKibbins, now joined by younger brother Jameson McKibbin, have in store for the 2023 season

And much, much more. Such a fun episode, as always, anytime we get a Beard Brother on to talk volley, content, business, and all other kinds of random stuff.
