Hey there Hannes Brinkborg! Cool to hear that you you’re joining the BeachTravel coaching crew in Praia da Rocha April 26th-May10th! Have you been to Portugal or Praia da Rocha before?
Back in the day there used to be a world tour stop in Espinho, Potugal, which was commonly known to have the heaviest sand on tour. Though I have been to Portugal many times I have never been to Praia da Rochas and I am really excited about getting to know the place I have heard is one of Europes finest beaches.
You have played 12 years and 120 events on the World Tour. What´s your best memory from all those international tournaments?
The expectations before a big game, the feeling when you are playing at your best level and the satisfaction of beating the nr 1 ranked team in the world is magical and unforgettable. Making my first top 5 result in a world tour stop in Marseille in 2007 and doing it beating two top 5 teams in the world, including the nr 1 ranked Brasilian team was a magical feeling.
The participants of BeachTravels represent all levels, from beginners to pros. Do you have any general tips on what to practice to become a better volleyball player?
Beginners controlling your pass and bump set are the keys, on the medium level the understanding of the game is crucial and for the elite refining your skills and tactical implementation is what helps you overcome your opponents. My general tip for all levels (though) would be to spend as much time as possible in the sand working your skills. Remember that having someone pushing you, helping you increase your knowledge and improving your technical skills can really speed up your development.
