This weekend was the very definition of a beach weekend, and a perfect one for some serious beach volleyball at that. The 2009 AVP Crocs Slam Bud Light Manhattan Beach Open hit the shores Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and "Manhattan Beach is considered by many as 'the granddaddy' of the AVP Crocs Tour. Players say once you win in Manhattan Beach, you really have made it on the AVP Tour," explains their official site.

LAist Featured Photos pool contributor jakerome shared these shots of the action on the sand. If you want to check out the beach volleyball live, you haven't missed your last chance--the Tour has another stop here in SoCal next month, August 6-9, in Hermosa Beach.
