Day One of Taiwan Open of Surfing Starts Off With Noserider Invitational Division Action

16 November 2012

16 November 2013, Jinzun Harbor-Taitung County:  Taylor Jensen from the USA started off the 2012 Taiwan Open of Surfing at Jinzun Harbor in Taitung County by posting the highest single wave score of 7.3 points (out of a possible 10 points) and the highest combined heat score of 13.3 (out of a possible 20 points) in the first round of the Noserider Invitational Division to advance into the semifinals.

“I had fun out there,” said Taylor who hails from San Diego but is currently living in Australia.  “Taiwan is such a beautiful place and it’s great to be here.  I’m feeling pretty good about getting some scores in that first heat, because in this morning’s conditions it’s a bit difficult for noseriding.  Be great if the conditions get better for the semifinals, looking forward to that.”

The Taiwan Open of Surfing will run from 16-18 November at Jinzun Harbor in Taitung County Taiwan, an Asian Surfing Championship sanctioned Ultima event with the NTD 600,000 (USD $20,000) in prize money up for grabs across the Men’s, Women’s, Longboard and special “Noseriding” divisions, the biggest prize purse ever offered for a surfing event in Taiwan.
