Beach volleyball + kickboxing, obviously. Huge in Southeast Asia.
You may not think so, but globally, cricket is a big deal. And beach cricket, which uses a tennis ball instead of the rock-hard bystander-skull-cracking normal variety, is a big enough deal that there used to be an international tournament.
