We study the surfaces of revolution with the non-degenerate second fundamental form in Minkowski 3-space. In particular, we investigate the surfaces of revolution satisfying an equation in terms of the position vector field and the 2nd-Laplacian in Minkowski 3-space. As a result, we give some new examples of the surfaces of revolution with light-like axis in Minkowski 3-space.
