About Us

Founded in Utah in 2012, Sand by Orvin Apparel is an athletic apparel company for beach volleyball players and fans.

We became most known for the shirts that simply said SAND. A simple, clean & minimalist design with nothing printed anywhere else on the shirt.

What are the benefits of beach volleyball? 

Prevent injuries 

Spending hours working out and training on a hard surface can cause overuse injuries of the knees, backs, quads and hamstrings. We love training in sand for its forgiveness on the joints and strengthening properties. 

Strengthens your entire body

Beach volleyball obviously works out your legs, but you will quickly notice that it's a full body workout. Cardio from long rallies. Back by swinging your arms. Core by stabilizing all the movements required to pass, set, hit... or bump, set, spike if you like ;)

Connect to your mind

Beach volleyball teaches an deep awareness of the present moment. When you can enjoy the current moment, you can reach a place in the mind that fills you with joy. Being present in the now is easier to achieve in sport and can help transfer over to other areas in your life.

What to wear to play beach volleyball

Proper movement is important for beach volleyball. Choose clothes that are not too baggy and that don't restrict your movement in any way. The days of the long board shorts below the knee are long gone.

On sunny days of beach volleyball, expect to sweat. Wear clothes that dry quickly, wick sweat away, and will keep you as comfortable as possible to get the most out of your yoga class. Fabrics with stretch will help you feel most comfortable as you move from pose to pose. 


  • The word that started the brand. In just 1 simple word, it connects all beach volleyball players.
  • Within 2 years of launching our sand shirts, most professional beach volleyball players in AVP could be spotted in one.
  • Our clothing is buttery soft (not as buttery as your sets of course) and fit perfectly. We despise boxy and scratchy shirts.


Sand by Orvin Apparel is a beach volleyball clothing brand, but don’t worry if you have never played volleyball in the sand, you are still allowed to enjoy the comfort we provide in our clothing line. We specialize in 2 things: Comfort and Style. We know you want to look good but you also don’t want your clothing to restrict your movement and we design our clothing with that in mind.
