Surf at Night: light is never a problem for surfing

The Portuguese surfers are getting ready for another "Surf at Night", to be held in Cortegaça Beach, Ovar, in Portugal. The music and surfing event will be enjoyed from 12th to 15th August, in the north of the country.

The "Surf at Night" attracts thousands of pro and amateur surfers from all corners of Portugal. There will be a night especially reserved to all surfers (friday) and another one for invited riders (saturday).

João Guedes, one of the Portuguese rising stars, has been confirmed in the surfing event where you can only count with floodlights and the moon to enlighten the wave ride.

"Surf at Night" will also put up a large human chain in order to raise awareness for the coastal erosion and its effects in the quality of the waves and in local communities. Up to 1000 people are expected to join the cause.

Cortegaça is a beach break known for its quality right-hand waves. The wave spot is located near Porto, the country's second largest city. Tickets for the "Surf at Night" event are available at
