First Surf Park in the United States Is Set for Success

December 12, 2013 No Comments

American Wave Machines and Surf’s Up NH have announced that the first dedicated surf park in North America will soon be opening 30 minutes outside of Boston in Nashua, N.H. From gentle whitewater waves to 6-foot barrels, the new SurfStream® at Surf’s Up NH will have everyone surfing.

Testing of the world’s largest standing wave machine recently took place along with several East Coast surfers including Rob Kelly, Michael Powell, Jared Veltsos and a van full of Eastern Surfing Association groms.

“I left each session riding this wave feeling stoked, which is the same feeling I spend so much of my time and money chasing waves around the world to get. It’s the reason anyone that surfs is so addicted and the fact that this wave replicates even just that aspect of surfing alone makes it a homerun in my eyes,” said Rob Kelly, pro surfer and Billabong Team Rider.

“This is the first of a series of our small footprint indoor surf parks opening in North America in the coming months and adding to our growing worldwide commercial surf park network,” said Bruce McFarland, the president and founder of American Wave Machines.
