March 1 - April 27, 2014
Yamaha Motor Australia has proudly sponsored the iconic Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) World Championship Tour events in Australia through the loan of four Yamaha WaveRunners acting as the official on-water support watercraft.
Equipped with surf-rescue sleds and tow-in lines, these VX18R and FX SHO WaveRunners were the first choice of the ASP organisers based on their proven offshore capabilities and renowned reliability; with each ski running for hours on end in the big surf.
In addition to the WaveRunners, a Yamaha Viking and Grizzly were supplied for beach-towing purposes and a 2014 SR400 motorcycle was donated as a major prize for the Rip Curl Pro winner.
Concluding the ASP tour in Australia, Mick Fanning took the Rip Curl Pro title, securing himself valuable ASP championship points and the keys to the brand new SR400.
