This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, features the newest elite blocker on the AVP Tour: Taryn Kloth.

Kloth pulled off the virtually unprecedented in winning the first AVP event of her career alongside wunderkind Kristen Nuss, and in Manhattan Beach, the two claimed fifth, losing only to April Ross and Alix Klineman and Sarah Sponcil and Kelly Claes.

On this episode, we discuss:

- How Kloth was able to manage the nerves of her first AVP main draw and win the whole thing, beating three Olympians in the process

- Kloth's path to beach volleyball, from frigid South Dakota to hot and humid Louisiana

- How a street sign was all she needed to turn down big offers indoors to pursue beach volleyball full-time

- The mindset she has, and why choosing the difficult path is always the path for her

And, as always, much, much more.
