The 17th edition of the Master of the Ocean 2021 was an action-packed extravaganza. All five days were filled with the hot tropical sun and catchy beats with varying wind and wave conditions that made completion of the event possible. Nature ruled and 40 elite water men and water women from 17 different countries took part in this unique event to put on a spectacular show for the crowd.
Local kite champion, Adeuri Corniel (youth Olympic freestyle champion), stole the show during the heats of the Kite Expression Sessions on Day 2 by putting on an impressive and exciting array of freestyle maneuvers and finishing in 1st place for the day. Veteran Luciano Gonzalez (4-time Overall Master of the Ocean champion) also scored in the top 3 consistently in SUP and Kite.
Imma Nin Franch (Spain) took the top spot in the women’s kite expression session and Manuel Selman (Chile) took the same for the men. Congratulations to Manuel Selman (Chile) for his well-deserved title of Master of the Ocean 2021 and to his Team Carambola for winning 1st place in the Overall Team category. The 2021 edition of Master of the Ocean was a full-on success with five action-packed days; nature delivered once again!
