That happened before the pro era and time clocks, and when disputes were more common.  To play well, you must pass well.  Fistfights are absolutely prohibited.  Imagine your two separate forearms forming one nice, flat platform—the largest and flattest surface with which to contact the ball.  I think he's an exception, however, and you're better off using one of the normal grips.  Point your thumbs downward, since that will help keep your forearms flat.  But to each his own.  With this technique, you can pass or dig balls on either side of your body.

Admittedly, I got an early start—at age six—but more important, I learned good fundamentals early on.  If the game has not ended when the clock expires, the team that's ahead by at least two points wins—or play continues until one team builds a two point lead.  Still, it's your job to get in front of that hurtling missile as best you can and somehow direct it forward in a gentle arc, about five feet from the net.  That happened before the pro era and time clocks, and when disputes were more common.

It is excellent practice that will improve your spiking proficiency and shots, in particular.  The player who can play either side equally well is a very popular one on the beach.  Make your opponents work hard for their points.  You have so much open court in beach doubles— especially with a blocker up—that you don't need to make a perfect shot. " For trouble sets and ones off the net, placing the ball in this area is surprisingly effective.  The deep middle shot is also effective when there is no block up, since the defenders are likely spread toward the two sidelines.
