SYLT, Germany - The organizers of Master of the Ocean, the world championship of wind and waves in the Dominican Republic, presented Team Condor, a multidisciplinary open water team, on stage in front of an enthusiastic audience during the prestigious Mercedes Benz Windsurf World Cup competition in Sylt, Germany.

The team is made of five pros—watermen and waterwomen—who will compete in this elite water sports race on waves. Sylt is the spot for wind sports lovers, known for its strong Nordic waves and gusts of 25 knots, with more than 200,000 visitors each year on occasion of the Windsurf World Cup.

During the event, Brian Talma, legendary Barbados creator of the Beach Culture World Tour, announced an action plan that promotes organic tourism globally. He offered a plaque of recognition to Master of the Ocean event founder Marcus Bohm for his efforts to bring the quintessential sustainable sporting event to the Americas and his connection with the Cabarete community. Master of the Ocean takes into account the four important pillars of environment, community, sports and culture.

About Master Of The Ocean

Master of the Ocean is the one competition in the world that is considered the Ironman of watersports. The event brings together five disciplines—surf, windsurf, kitesurf, SUP, and wingfoil—to its dream location of Playa Encuentro, Cabarete in the Puerto Plata province. The conditions are spectacular for the extreme athletes from around the world who come to this tropical spot, attracted by the wind, 28°C water temperature 365 days a year, glassy waves, and the warmth that characterizes the locals.

The Master of the Ocean was launched in 2003 by German Marcus Bohm. Bohm is considered a watersports ambassador of the Dominican Republic, due to his passion for all things surf, as well as his contribution to the community by promoting sports and organic tourism.

The event is powered by the Happy Dolphins DR foundation and has the support of Condor Airlines, the Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism, Viva Resorts, Edelweiss Airlines, Natura Cabana and Ultravioleta Cabarete. Other partners are Cabarete Coffee Shop, Cable del Norte, Gingerly Sustainable Skincare, Yamazato Cabarete, Tubagua Ecolodge, Lifestyle Holidays Hotels, 321 Takeoff Surf School, and the German Embassy in Santo Domingo.
