Master of The Ocean is one of Cabarete’s most popular events. Described as the IRONMAN of watersports, this unique event has been taking place every year since 2003 and organized by Cabarete’s feisty Bavarian, Marcus Bohm. With 2017 marking the 15th edition, the event is going to be bigger than ever!
This year for the first time ever, Master of The Ocean is collaborating with the Dominican Republic Tourism Board in Germany and the Marketing Agency Unicum, to give students of 5 major sports universities in Germany a chance to win a ‘Green Card’ to the event in February. This green card provides them with a free pass to Cabarete and free accommodation with us at Villa Taina! The tour takes place at the sports universities of Hamburg, Goettingen, Bochum, Cologne and Frankfurt from October 31st until November 4th. To win this chance of a lifetime, the students have to surf the best wave. However, it’s a little chilly in the waters over in Europe, so the Master of the Ocean hopefuls will be surfing the 3-D wave tunnel and surfing simulator. The winner from each university will make it to the final, which will be taking place at the last leg of the tour in Frankfurt. Here the supreme champion will be crowned and given the green card to come and enjoy the flawless waves and tropical weather of Cabarete.
Not only is this a unique chance to bag a free holiday to one of the most exciting watersports events in the world, but it’s also an excellent opportunity to show off the wonders of Cabarete and hopefully inspire more travelers to visit and try something new! The first stop has already taken place in Hamburg and the finalist is ready to surf her way to Cabarete! We’ll be following this tour closely and wish everyone the best of luck. We can’t wait to welcome the winner to our hotel with open arms and surf some party waves! To follow along with the most recent happenings, LIKE Master Of the Ocean on Facebook.
