In this episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, we have one of the most unique teams on the AVP and Beach Pro Tours in Tim Brewster and Kyle Friend. What makes them unique? They are, as far as we know, the only male partners who are also dating, making for a fascinating dynamic on and off the court. We get into that, as well as:

  • Their recent NORCECA win, and the pros and cons of competing in NORCECAs vs. Beach Pro Tour Futures events
  • The uncertainty of the AVP rankings, and the high-stakes nature of having only three events on the 2024 schedule
  • They also touch on the dynamics of their on-court and off-court relationship and the growth they have experienced together.
  • Tim Brewster’s transition and growth as a player, from fringe qualifier talent to taking top-fives regularly on the AVP.

And a whole lot more. Such a fun chat with Tim and Kyle!
