Video: Yamaha WaveRunners Australia Congratulates Mitch Wayt on Pro Open Win


Things have been going pretty good for Pro Open Runabout racer and Gold Coast, Queensland local Mitch Wayt. Last week, the Factory Yamaha WaveRunners Australia/WORX Racing sponsored rider piloted his blue-and-white FZS against some of the fiercest competition that Australia had to offer at the QPWC Motosurf Titles in the Mudjimba Beach. Wayt bested Brendon Boyde, Christian D’Agostin, and Shane Stuart. As WCJ contributor Andrew “Skip” Donovan wrote, “He is a natural on a runabout and was giving everyone on the beach a great show, keeping the throttle pinned all the way to the beach.”

Wayt nearly lapped the field, with nary 100-feet separating him from Boyde’s tail, aptly placing his supercharged Yamaha atop the podium. With Wayt currently in Bangkok, Thailand for the annual Kings Cup, the previous week’s racing only served as a pre-show to the main event happening this week. In celebration of last week’s win, Yamaha WaveRunners Australia congratulated the factory rider on their official Facebook page, stating: “A world-class win at the 2016 QLD Surf Titles by Mitch Wayt in Pro-Open Runabout. Mitch won all three races on a Stock-Class FZS by a considerable lead,” with the hashtag #WinnersRideYamaha

Yamaha even captured Wayt’s strong performance as he navigated the rolling surf and surpassed the competition in the video below:
