5 Beach volleyball items that should be on your Christmas list

Beach volleyball – the gift that keeps on giving

Holiday season is fast approaching, we’ve been so focused on and excited about the 2018 calendar release that we’ve only just realized that it’s already December! Which means… Christmas and the holiday season is around the corner! (Gasp gasp gasp – sorry, that’s us trying not to hyperventilate).

Do not panic! If you haven’t given any thought to Christmas gifts and you haven’t had a chance to read any of Oprah’s or Urban Outfitter’s suggestions – we got you. We’ve created the ultimate beach volleyball player Christmas list (that you can even print out and mail to Santa).

Here are our top prezzies that any beach volleyball enthusiast would want to find under their tree come Christmas morning:

 

1. Magic beach volleyball powers

Imagine if you could be like the Superman or Superwoman of beach volleyball complete with x-ray vision which would allow you to decode the oppositions hand signals, super human strength which would all spikes end with in aces, lightning speed for those moments when you need to get the ball before it touches the sand. “Oh the places you'll go! There is fun to be done! There are points to be scored. There are games to be won. And the magical things you can do with that ball will make you the winning-est winner of all.”

2. Sunshine everyday

If you play a sport that basically relies on you being outside, in the sand – one of the best gifts (if only it were possible) to receive would be sunshine everyday. No cold, no rain, no slushy snow to contend with! Only blissful warmth and long days with blue skies and golden rays. Ideally we would like this gift with the perfect sand, you know what I’m talking about. The beach volleyball sand sweet spot.

3. Tickets to Fort Lauderdale

What would Christmas be without tickets to the first Beach Major Series event of the season? No answer? Exactly. What every beach volleyball enthusiast really wants under his/her tree this year is actually an envelope with tickets inside. Medal match tickets… oh yeah that’s what I’m talking about! VIP medal match tickets… oh my gosh! Heaven is real, love is real and so is everything else that is good in this world.

4. Access to BeachStream

Remember that time when you asked yourself if there was like a Netflix but for beach volleyball? We heard you. Non-stop beach volleyball on demand to get you through the holiday go-slow. BeachStream is just the thing for you, you can re-watch all the greats and relive history being made. If you can’t wait until Christmas and want to watch all this action now... click here.

I could rewatch that over and over again.

5. The secret to creating a winning team

As a beach volleyball athlete you know the most important thing is having a great team… you know ‘teamwork makes the dream work’. But what do the most successful teams have? What’s their secret ingredient? What separates them from the rest? We’ve got your back there too. We’ve low-key (actually not low-key at all) interviewed all of the most successful beach volleyball teams and found the secret to their success. Try and wait until Christmas morning to read the mysteries of the universe, but again – we’ve got no willpower – here it is, just click here.

So there you have it, our Christmas list, from ours to yours.
