The 10th annual Taiwan Open Of Surfing enjoyed great surf at the magnificent Jinzun Harbour near Taitung on Taiwan's beautiful South East Coastline.
Unfortunately this year, due to Covid19, WSL's many eager competitors across Men's and Women's QS and the World's best Pro Junior surfers were unable to attend.
The growth of the TOOS over the past decade has been incredible and the quality waves and all round welcoming nature of the Taiwan communities has seen the event grow in WSL status and it is a favourite among WSL surfers and officials.
It's why WSL loves running World Championship deciding events in Taiwan as well, crowning new World Champions in Longboard and Pro Junior ranks for the past 5 years.
This year the event ran as a domestic event and it was great to see quality waves and radiply improving Taiwanese surfers performing in the biggest surfing stage in Taiwan.
The good news is, WSL and the Taitung Governor have agreed to reinstating the WSL World Juniors for 2021 and 2022 along with QS Men's and Women's event.
"It will be exciting for WSL to return to Taiwan in 2021 after we missed out this year - It is a highlight event for staff and competitors from this region with great surf, beautiful weather, magnificent natural beauty and good friends which have been nurtured over the events 10 year history - We're already planning for 2021 to be bigger and better than ever" said Will Hayden-Smith, WSL Tour Manager of the APAC Region
