This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter features our annual in-house visit with our brothers up north, Sam Schachter and Dan Dearing. The top team from Canada was in Hermosa Beach for a month-long (ish) training camp before hitting the road in La Paz, Tepic, Itapema, Saquarema, and potentially Uberlandia. Yeah, a lot of travel. We talked about that, as well as:

  • What Dan Dearing’s first year back on the Beach Pro Tour was like
  • The fun of building a new team again
  • Winning the continental championships in December…in Punta Cana…in gale force winds after being indoors for months
  • Why they’re playing at a different level this year than last

And, as always, so much more. Lots of laughs, lots of gems this one.
