Standup paddleboarding (SUP) is a water sport born from surfing, with modern roots in Hawaii. Stand up paddleboarders stand on boards that are floating on the water, and use a paddle to propel themselves. Here are local companies that provide training, adventure trips and board hire.


Our Wye Valley HQ is based in the pretty market town of Ross-on-Wye. Here we operate our activities from our mobile Paddle Wagon on the riverside green, Wye Street. Our adventure days operate within the Wye Valley between Hoarwithy and Redbrook
