The ultimate waterman event in Cabarete, Dominican Republic


2019 Master of the Ocean BannerCabarete, Dominican Republic is touted as one of the best watersports locations on the globe. With this gleaming reputation, it’s no wonder that this little town has hosted some major events such as the World Kiteboarding League, sailing regattas and numerous windsurfing events. Out of these events, the most exciting of them all is Master Of The Ocean. This event combines surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing and stand up paddleboarding for the ultimate waterman and woman title.

Every year Master Of The Ocean lures athletes and spectators from all corners of the world. The majority of the action takes place just a 5 minutes drive from our condos at Playa Encuentro. The rest takes place conveniently right in our backyard including a great party at LAX! With February offering glassy waves in the morning and consistent trade winds in the afternoon, Cabarete provides the perfect location for this multidisciplinary competition.
