NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - Land-locked Nashua, New Hampshire would not be the first place one would think would host a sanctioned surfing competition, but think again.

Surf’s Up in Nashua on Sunday will host what’s being billed as the first-ever sanctioned indoor surfing competition.

The facility uses cutting edge technology by American Wave Machines that creates rolling natural waves to mimic ocean surf action.

The competition will be held Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is open to the public.

More than two dozen leading surfers from the Northeast are expected to attend, including New Hampshire’s 14-year-old Kainalu (KY’-nah-loo) “Kai” Nichols.

The Surfstream wave machine produces seven different types of waves up to six feet high, including barreling waves.
