This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, features the host himself, as Tri Bourne is, alas, after five weeks on the road, back in the United States. For now. Bourne and Trevor Crabb hit the road hard, playing in a Challenger in Turkey, Elite 16s in Ostrava and Jurmala, before slipping into World Championships, where they took ninth after forfeiting due to COVID.

Now Bourne’s back, and we recapped everything, chatting:

  • Those five weeks on the road
  • A strangely empty World Championships, and the dull vibe on the World Tour this year
  • Bourne’s thoughts on the AVP’s new three-tiered system
  • Why he often considers retirement – and why he always comes back

And, as always, much, much more.
