"AVP Uncovered: Best of the Beach" is a documentary series that uncovers what life is really like for 4 different athletes trying to make it on the AVP Pro Beach Volleyball tour. The first episode provides insight into each athlete’s background in the sport as well as their current goals for the 2021 season. As the 2021 AVP Gold Series kicks off in Atlanta, we witness Taryn Kloth and Kristen Nuss’s dream run from the qualifier all the way to the championship as they become one of the only teams to ever win their first event. At the legendary Manhattan Beach Open we see Jake Gibb compete in his home event for the last time in his 21 year career and overcome disappointing results in his emotional final moments on tour. At the Chicago Tour Finale rising star of the sport, Zana Muno fights her way to a career best result with a brand new partner. This series provides unprecedented behind the scenes access to the home life, training, travel and competition for these 4 athletes throughout this season to pull back the curtain for sports fans on what life is really like for the best volleyball players on the beach.
