Team Danny Kinda, 2009 6-Man Edition

It’s time to talk Six-Man. The Manhattan Beach Surf Fest Volleyball Tournament hosts tens of thousands of participants on 40+ courts and combines the country’s best volleyball players with the country’s best party animals. Saturday is a big party and Sunday is where the biggest bragging rights in volleyball are claimed. With that in mind, we’ve looked far and wide for the best mix of talent in both necessary genres of the Six-Man.

Last year’s 2nd-Place finish was kinda good for our first year, but fortunately we have even more firepower this year with the addition of Olympic Gold Medalist and internet-radio star Reid Priddy. We’ll see how we do with the best all-around volleyball player in the world on our side of the net…

Last year we had an open invite to join Team Danny Kinda, and I guess we’ll do it again. Just email us (be at kindagood dot com), and show up on Saturday, August 1st. We don’t care if you don’t know us and you’re just a fan. We’re nice and we’re fun. But we’re also serious. We’re not going to guarantee you playing time. You won’t start over AVP Champion John Mayer. We want as many Danny Kindas running around Manhattan Beach as possible, so join us for a weekend of fun you can only have hanging with The Kinda Good Crew!

We’ve got top AVP pros, Team USA members, and those loud guys who seem to up and disappear at about 3:30pm to a cozy piece of shade by the pier. Here’s the Team Danny Kinda roster (so far):
