  • On the difficulty of transitioning to beach from indoor“When I switched (to beach), it was so much harder than how it looked. I am happy with my progress, but if people realized how many reps I’ve taken in the sand… From outside, it looks like I learned quickly. But so many times, I couldn’t get it right. Eventually those reps paid off.”
