Three WSL Champions Crowned at Taiwan Open of Surfing
Oney Onwar’s Career Best Win for Indonesia
Jinzun Harbor, Taitung County/TPE (Sunday, November 27, 2016) – A huge Final day at the Taiwan Open of Surfing hosted by Taitung County has seen champions crowned across three WSL and local divisions. Indonesian sensation Oney Anwar has won the Qualifying Series (QS) 1,500 event, Frenchman Edouard Delpero has taken out the Men’s Longboard Qualifying Series (LQS) event and the Women’s LQS event has been taken out by Honolua Blomfield. Conditions were tough at Jinzun Harbour on the Final day with 4 foot waves and strong cross shore winds.
Oney Anwar’s QS1,500 win is the biggest of his career. Anwar came up against Australian Cody Robinson who along with Anwar had been a standout all event. Anwar controlled the majority of the final after he dropped a single wave score of 6.25 out of a possible 10 and backed it up with an excellent 9.00 point ride. Anwar was on fire, throwing water everywhere with his powerful carves and boosting massive air-reverses.
“I’m so stoked I can’t believe it,” Anwar said. “I really enjoy the waves in Taiwan and even though it was stormy today the waves were still good. It’s so good to finish the year off with a win especially the biggest win of my career. I can’t wait for 2017 and hope I can keep on winning.”
