Night Surfing

Posted: October 16, 2010 at 6:04 pm

It was at the 1984 Beaurepaires Surfing Open that night surfing was introduced. Thousands turned out on the Saturday night to see the worlds best under lights. The night was a huge success except the waves were non existent. It had a surreal atmosphere. Somebody told the top riders that footballers use boot polish under their eyes to minimise glare in night games. Here Tom Curren and Martin Potter go a little overboard with the war paint.
