Congratulations to Renata Dykstra for her commitment to play Beach Volleyball with the University of New Orleans Privateers!

Renata’s volleyball journey was a little different than most! As a player in Ottawa, Canada – she was under lockdown and unable to play volleyball at all for a long time. She made the decision once school was finished to come and stay, live and train with Dakine across the border where things were much more open than in her hometown in Canada. At Dakine, we got her into high gear to catch up after over a year of missing out on touches on the ball! ¬†After spending the summer training with Dakine she returned to Ottawa at the end of the summer and continued on working hard on the sand. She made the decision to commit to UNO and we just cannot wait to cheer her on as a Privateer! Congrats Renata!
