Last Minute Gift Ideas for the Beach Volleyball Super Fan in Your Life

Time is running out. I know you’ve been busy but no one wants to be “that guy” or “that girl”. Your loved ones are counting on you to get them some awesome gifts. If you have a beach volleyball super fan in your life, I’m going to make this easy on you. A lot of professional beach volleyball players are way more that just volleyball players. We have been making programs, writing books, vlogging, blogging and building their entrepreneurial lives and passions.

Some of these are from companies that have done everything they can to team up with and support our beautiful sport. Some of these have been built by the men and women you see battle it out between the lines on the beach. If you’re going to spend your money somewhere, keep it in the beach volleyball universe so that our sport gets bigger and better. YOU play a significant role in the future of beach. Here is the VolleyCamp Hermosa list of last minute gift ideas. Get the beach volleyball junkie in your life something they love from the people, athletes and companies that are growing the game.


  1. A 7 Day Training Camp in Hermosa Beach, California.

Maybe I’m biased but maybe, just maybe, I’m also a genius whose advice you should take because the fate of the world depends on it. What better gift could you give a volley-addict?  In our dreamy beach town, you can’t throw a rock without hitting a professional beach volleyball player. But don’t throw rocks at them, let them train you at our awesome camps.

2. McKibbin Brothers White Jersey Tank

It’s a shirt, that’s also a bearded disguise!!! Bring out your inner pirate hooker. Be a lumberjack. Start your own portable bird’s nest. Keep your morsels in a safe place so you can eat them later. Buy the Beard Shirt and support the two guys who have the most entertaining vlogs in beach volleyball. Pictured is the lesser know and infinitely more handsome 4th McKibbin brother, Xander.

3. We Were Kings: A deep dive inside the lives of professional beach volleyball players.

If you didn’t know, Travis Mehwhirter has been creating some amazing content for beach volleyball. Along with Tri Bourne, his awesome podcast “SANDCAST’ interviews dives into the lives of your favorite players, coaches, refs and personalities in beach volleyball. Now he’s turned that concept into a book! Check out page 46 to see who kissed who after hours on center court! JK. He doesn’t go that deep…. That’s what she said.. Mic drop.

4. Son of Jor-El” Sublimated Boardshort – LIMITED EDITION

Want to be Superman? Well you can’t. But you can dress like him and then try unsuccessfully for hours  to spike balls behind your back, and make 180 turn, no-look digs. Living legend, Sean Rosenthal has his own Signature Line with Smack Sportswear. Rumor has it Rosie’s Raiders get a cut and we all know none of them have jobs so they really need the support this holiday season.

5. Reid Priddy’s Max Potential Playbook

Reid’s got a resume that would make even Thomas Jefferson and Leonardo Da Vinci’s jaws drop. The genius behind The Beach Hack created an e-book that divulges his secrets to peak performance… Giant custom built mobile home/gym/recovery studio and full time coaching and body staff sold separately 🙂 The best part about this one is it’s totally FREE. Go get one and see how one of the greatest players in our sport has gotten it done against the biggest and best beasts in volleyball.

6. AVP Dig Deep Slim Fit T-Shirt

The history, the prestige, the stories, the logo… the contracts :0 Still the most recognizable brand in beach volleyball, the AVP has come back in a HUGE way and it’s here to stay. Donald Sun and his team have made strides to make the AVP the globally recognized force that it once was. The AVP has started juniors leagues, made a monster acquisition of the largest grassroots organization in America and is not starting AVP Academies across the USA. The new team behind the proud old logo also became the first beach organization to GET PAID to stream its tournaments to millions. Show your support and get your gear at winter prices!

7. p1440 Hat and Visor Collection

“This clown is really promoting two arch enemies in the same post?” YUP! I am. Casey and Kerri have a new mission in their lives and it’s to take the sport to a place where THEY BELIEVE it will be in a better place. With passion, commitment and good ol’ fashioned grit, they’ve created massive tournaments that brought the best athletes in the globe and have given us historically sub-minimum wage athletes another opportunity to play the sport we love and make some money doing it. Whatever your thoughts on the whole AVP vs. p1440 situation, two forces are fighting tooth and nail to bring beach volleyball to new, awesome levels.

8. VolleyCamp Hermosa BEACH Hat

Since your already in the hat buying mood after number 7, bring it on back to me and my company for a purchase. My new goal is to make 1 million people better at beach volleyball. Tons of what we offer is free and I’ve been working my tail off to bring the best knowledge and coaching I can to athletes around the world. Every little bit helps so come on over and get a sweet beach hat.

9. Billy Allen’s Good Blood: (The Descendants of Terene, Book 1)

Creative genius Billy Allen is quietly and unassumingly one of the funniest and most creative guys in professional beach volleyball. This year he finished his first fantasy novel. Someone on Amazon gave him 4 stars but he’s currently being hunted down by the Highfather, the ruling nobles AND the Descendants for his deceitfulness. Everyone else gave the book 5 stars and you’re going to love it to. Like I said, beach volleyball players are so much more than jocks. Get Billy’s book and dive in. Its kinda good.

10. Nicolette Martin Art Piece

3 Time National Champion and AVP up-and-comer Nicolette Martin likes to ‘color’ because she claims “it’s a great arm workout since all my championship rings make my hand so heavy.” In all seriousness, I stopped by her booth at an AVP event and as a lover of all things beach and volleyball I give my full on recommendation. Grab on to one of her amazing pieces and make any space more beautiful. Thanks for blurring the lines between artist and jock, Nicollette. The Breakfast Club would be confused at first but then proud.

11. Rox Volleyball Dal-cena Boardshorts

It’s rumored that these shorts give you the power to literally sleep walk for an entire weekend and then wake up on Sunday with a bottle of champagne in your hands. The GOAT and the Greyhound teamed up with Rox for some sweet boardshorts. Grab a pair and laugh your way to some championships 😉

12. Rox Volleyball King Crabb Boardshorts

Know someone who’s feeling crabby? Cheer them up with their own pair of crab-themed boardshorts. Despite their split, both brothers are getting it done plus why wouldn’t you support sea life as a beach volleyball player. Rox actually sends the brothers 1 silver dollar for every pair sold just to see them fight over it.

13. Slunks Boardshorts

What am I rich?!?! FOUR pairs of boardies? Yes. You are rich. That’s why you have internet so suck it up you penny pincher and grab some of these. A little old school, a little edgy and a lot of fun. It’s about male thighs are getting some sunlight again! How many decades has it been? Ladies, hold on to your visors, whiplash is a real threat when a beach player sporting some tan muscular quads walks past you in these! Founder, Chris Reames is really tight with a few notable players on tour and he treats them really well. Jump on board the limits of this revolution are thigh-high!

14. Avatar’s Guide to Beach Volleyball: Everything you need to know about the sport from the only professional player that writes

And not only can he write, he can count too! Newly made financial wizard and the most looked up to man in beach volleyball shared his view of the game and its foibles. Much to the chagrin of former partner, Billy Allen, Doherty’s book received 5 stars across the board on Amazon. All ten of his readers thoroughly enjoyed the comical way Ryan looks at himself, the game and its characters.

15. Vital Sportswear – For Athletes, By Athletes

Tired of The Man telling you what colors and styles are cool?! Head over to Vital where they will custom make bikinis and beach outfits for you!!! Yet another company run by beach volleyball players, their team will take care of your needs stitch by stitch.

16. A Set of 3 Wilson Beach Volleyballs

Do you have the BALLS to buy these balls? We’ve got them at a huge discount! They are the older version but like a fine wine or limited edition baseball cards, they’ll easily be worth a thousand dollars in 4-5 years. You’ll regret it if you don’t keep a few minty in a moisture resistance basement at 61 degrees.

17. VolleyCamp Hermosa Gift Certificate

Don’t be that lame aunt or uncle that gives money or a check for special occasions. Instead, give them a piece of paper that represents money!!! Look how happy MY nieces were! These can be used to buy VCH training books, shirts, balls, online video coaching, private lessons classes or just cut it into small pieces, throw them at me and I’ll dance for you!

Happy Holidays Everyone! Be thankful for everything and everyone you have. Even if you only give somebody a phone call letting them know you love them, don’t underestimate the power that can have over someone’s day. One better day for even one person can and will tilt this towards the good and the beautiful.
