LONDON, UK 07.09.2012: The Nike Night Surf will return to the UK’s world-class break of Fistral Beach, Newquay in Cornwall on 21st and 22nd September 2012. The event is set to deliver two days of fierce competition under the bright lights as well as a chance for the public to experience floodlit surfing.
Surfers in 6 categories - Men’s Open, Women’s Open, Pro Junior, U-16 Boys, U-16 Girls and U-12 - will compete in a bid to win a share of the largest prize purse on the UK Pro Tour, with all divisions holding qualifying points for the GB Squad.
New in 2012 is the addition of a night Expression Session on Friday evening, where the country’s best aerial surfers push the progression of the sport in a display of aerial domination. Friday also sees the opportunity for 24 local surfers to paddle out and experience surfing under the floodlights in the Carve Magazine Public Session. This non-judged event can be entered exclusively through Carve – www.carvemag.com from Friday 7th September.
