With less then 300 tickets sold to date, it’s also phenomenal odds: Just one $20 entry could win you a trip for four to Popoyo, Nicaragua, and a surf/ fishing vacation of your dreams.

Marlindo Resort was founded by proprietor Jeff Tome, who has strong roots in the East Coast surfing community, specifically south Florida, going back thirty years. Tome started from humble beginnings in Florida’s West Palm Beach area, and fell in love with surfing and the ocean at a young age. As he began exploring the world looking for the perfect wave, he supported his dreams by becoming a skilled captain and die hard fisherman, as well as a professional chef in the process. Working on million dollar yachts for celebrities and wealthy businessmen in exclusive coastal resort communities around the world, Tome helped guests catch trophy fish during the day and turned them into world class fine dining cuisine at night. Along the way, Jeff would catch epic world class waves, sometimes all by himself, in such places as Hawaii, Tahiti, Mexico, Puerto Rico and of course Nicaragua, where he planted permanent roots and where he founded Marlindo Resort.

Over many years and much hard work (and a little luck!), Jeff has built a world class reputation as a highly qualified fishing charter captain, chef and surf guide. Now Mr. Tome is excited to announce the Grand Opening of his first full-featured hotel and restaurant complex, Marlindo Resort. Encompassing all three of his favorite passions; Surfing, Fishing and Cuisine in one location, Tome has committed to providing a level of service and amenities for visitors from all over the world that is unrivaled. at any price.

Never forgetting where he came from, Jeff would like to show his appreciation to the East Coast surfing community for helping nurture his passion as a child to travel and explore the world, looking for the biggest fish and the best waves. By teaming up with the Getaboard Foundation Jeff hopes to help underprivileged and homeless children find a ray of hope during a dark time in their young lives by teaching them how to surf, skateboard, create art and ultimately educate themselves to a point to be able to rise above their surroundings. Raising awareness for the charity is also prominent in his mind. “Hopefully,” said Tome, “These kids will find their spark to explore the world around them and blaze their own trails. Marlindo Resort is proud to offer its accommodations, Gourmet food, expert surf guides and charter fishing staff as a prize for the lucky winner of this awesome raffle!”

Jeff continued; “Please help change the lives of homeless and underprivileged children through the efforts of the Getaboard Foundation. At the end of the day, these children will become the real winners.”
