This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, features probably our most-asked-for guest of the 2021 year: Indoor sensation, and new beach convert, Taylor Sander.

For the past decade or so, Sander has been one of the best outside hitters in the United States, a four-time All-American at BYU, Olympic bronze medalist in 2016, and a member of the 2021 Tokyo Olympic team.

Now, he’s a beach guy, teaming up with Taylor Crabb to make a push for the 2024 Paris Olympic Games on the beach.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • What in the world beach volleyball players do in the off-season months, when Sander would normally be playing indoors overseas
  • How his transition to beach began, and a surprising text from Taylor Crabb
  • His beach volleyball debut in Itapema, Brazil, where he and Crabb finished ninth
  • The improvements he’s seeking to make during the off-season

And, as always, much, much more.
