About Miramar®/King of the Beach®
Miramar®, King & Queen of the Beach® and Queen & King of the Court were founded in 1983 by Stephen Ascher and Christopher St. John “Sinjin” Smith along the Golden Shores of California. The duo first met at Miramar Beach, a small, but legendary beach enclave near Santa Barbara, California, together with the Sideout® brand. These American Riviera Brands™, with their rich sports lifestyle history, were founded on a belief that there is a higher level of consciousness to be found within oneself through the personal life journey that the global volleyball, surf and beach lifestyle provides. 2024 marks the 40th anniversary of Miramar® King of the Beach ® volleyballs, the number one beach volleyball in the world today.
