Find It All in Jacksonville Beach

The Blues, Jazz, Rock’n Roll, the Pops, and the Movies!

Red Bull Night Riders returns to Jacksonville Beach, Florida at the Pier. This surf competition will take place under unique conditions…the moon and the stars. Each of the six pro surfers competing in this tow-at contest has the opportunity to capture big air, pull off their best trick and push the limits of their sport.

Each of the six riders has 15 minutes to pull off their biggest air and best trick. Time will start as soon as the rider grabs the tow rope. A panel of 3 pro surfers will judge each rider based on their best completed trick. The winner with the highest score (scale 0 to 10.0) will be crowned Red Bull Night Riders champion.

Start time: 6:00 PM
