Cabarete’s 10th Master of the Ocean Event

Coming up in just a few days is the 10th annual Master of the Ocean. Originally a triathlon of water sports including surfing, kitesurfing and windsurfing it now also includes SUP surfing as a 4th sport!

As explained on the Master of the Ocean website:

Master of the Ocean is the world’s most complete watersport competition in four categories, which has created a new class of elite and multi-sport waterman/woman.

As the only competition of its kind, Master of the Ocean challenges the most skilled surfers, windsurfers, kitesurfers and SUP surfers with 5 days of extreme water skills and showcases the best of the Caribbean Northshore near Cabarete, Dominican Republic.

Cabarete is probably one of the best locations in the world for an event like this. Not many places offer great surfing and kiting or windsurfing conditions the same day, every day! This time of year, the surf in Cabarete is in the peak of the wave season, while the wind in Cabarete is starting to come out of the winter storms and into the warmer trade winds of the summer.

Wind in Cabarete

The first few days of February 2012 have been particularly good for wind in Cabarete. The wind meter atop The Watermark, installed and maintained by the Cabarete webcam located on Kite Beach Cabarete, has been recording some epic wind conditions. Take yesterday’s wind graph as an example.

Hitting a maximum of 26.9 knots late in the afternoon, there have been epic conditions to kite surf at Cabarete’s Kite Beach or wind surf in Cabarete’s Bay.
