This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, features one of our most requested duos: Taylor Crabb and Taylor Sander. Fresh off a rejuvenating off-season, Crabb and Sander are looking to follow up on a phenomenal first year as partners, one in which they made five finals and won two events, including the Phoenix Gold Series Championships. We chatted about all manner of topics, including:

  • Why Taylor Sander’s rookie season was historically good, despite what many naysayers might say (and for some reason do)
  • Why they decided to skip the Doha Elite 16, and will be playing in AVP Miami instead of the La Paz Challenge
  • What Sander has learned about his own game, and what improvements he’s making heading into 2023
  • The mental battle between choosing to play in AVP events vs. Olympic qualifying events

And, as always, a whole lot more.
