It is well known that space-like maximal surfaces and time-like minimal surfaces in Lorentz-Minkowski 3-space L 3 have singularities (i.e. points where the induced metric degenerates) in general. We are interested in the case where the singular set consists of a light-like line, since this case has not been analyzed before. In this Note, we give new examples of such surfaces.
