When you’re serving in beach volleyball, you
want to face your body into the court. If you’re right-handed, you’ll have your left
foot slightly in front of your right foot. Most right-handers tend to hold their ball
in their left hand. You want to toss the ball in front of you,
in front of your right shoulder, like this. When you get ready to serve, you’re going
to pull your right arm back, or your dominant hand, and you’re going to toss the ball up,
and contact it with a strong surface. You want your wrist to be strong, and your
hand to be wide. A very common serve is the float serve, and
that means that you’re trying to put a little pop on the ball with your hand. The ball basically doesn’t spin but it kind
of moves, and it will move in the wind, like this. Another kind of serve is a topspin serve,
where you actually put spin on the ball. The ball will rotate like this, and it tends
to drop in front of the passer. When you do a topspin serve, you wrap your
hand around the top of the ball, like this. When you do a float serve, you keep your hand
straight and flat, like this. In beach volleyball your serve can touch the
net as long as it goes over and in the court. And that’s how you serve a beach volleyball.

    Okay now I know. I have to bend my fingers a bit backwards so the VolleyBall hits only my flat palm and boosts forward and goes a bit higher?

    Really you can just do it under handed with equal effectiveness just make it less powerful and more horizontal
