“It’s a beautiful day in Cabarete, we’re in Celuisma, Camino del Sol. It is the 4th day of the competition, the first two days we had great winds however noticed it would die out a little during the week, so we basically focused the first two days on windsurfing and kiteboarding. The athletes have been great, they’ve been in the water since 7AM til 7PM everyday nonstop, real watermen and waterwomen. Also it’s been great to participate in this year’s Master of the Ocean, really glad to be able to support the event! “
