We're honored to have so many talented student athletes at DaKine, and the fun continues this week as we introduce you to another member of our U18 Surf Team.
She's played all four years at Peninsula High School, and plans on majoring in Cinema & Photography with a minor in Theater. Did we mention her favorite "non-volleyball" hobby is watching and studying movies!
Today was the BVCA "Pairs" competition featuring the top teams from the club competition. Dakine teams took 1st and 2nd in the Division 1 Silver Championship 1st and 2nd Place (Bailey and Sharli 1st, Ella and Presley 2nd), took 1st in the Division 2 Gold (Kaitlyn and Hannah), Took 2nd in the Division 1 Gold Championship (Kyleene and Madison), and 2nd place in Division 1 Gold Silver (Sam and Kristiane). We had a Dakine team in Every Division 1 and 2 Pairs finals with one of the finals all Dakine! Great playing everyone! Much love to all the organizers especially Jay, Matt, and Andrew! Safe travels and that's a wrap for the FL BVCA Cup!...
Dakine Warriors are BVCA FL Cup Champions! Thanks Coaches and Families for working so hard to become the #1 Beach Vb Club in the country! So proud of this team! Props to club 210 out of Houston for beating us in pool play, and of course to Club Tamarack for pushing us once again to the limit in the finals! Saw the present and future of Dakine this weekend and it is very, very, bright! Much Aloha to all!...
Congratulations to Riley Rabedeaux on committing to play for Adams State University!

Riley intends to study kinesiology and exercise science at Adams State.
Your DaKine Ohana will be cheering for you- keep working hard Riley!...
“I love sand sessions because they force me to work harder for every play as well as being a part of every play. Transitioning from running in the sand to indoors, the sessions help me become quicker and cover more area. This helps my defense immensely. When I transition back to indoors the game becomes slower due to my ability to read the play better. I can read the defense easier while hitting, and have built up a variety of shots.”
Jennica McPherson, Junior at Western Washington University
Wow!!! When you have an entire team of players coming at you yelling, “Let’s do this again next year!”, you know something awesome just happened. I want to thank all of the Dakine coaches for giving the Roosevelt Roughriders volleyball team a taste of some fun volleyball on the beach. The girls were exhausted and loved every minute of it! It was the perfect change from being on the hardwood for the last 10 months and all of them clearly improved in every skill. Dakine coaches, all of the rumors are true, you are the best and we are looking forward to another team camp next year!!
Lamar Hurd, Roosevelt High School Head Coach
