Stand up Paddleboarding is the worlds fastest growing paddlesport, first started in Hawaii as an offshoot of surfing but now massively popular all over the world in its own right, instead of surfers sitting on their boards until they caught a wave stand-up paddle boards enabled surfers to paddle into the wave and already be standing with a paddle to help balance and control the board.
SUP has grown massively and now incorporates such other activities from SUP yoga to white-water SUPing. we have probably the best location on the river Wye for paddleboarding as we have a lovely little beach right next to our access point here in Symonds Yat West.
As a group of two or more you can hire awesome Red Paddle Stand up Paddleboards from our sister company Wye Canoes the same way you hire Canoes and Kayaks for a wide range of Self-Guided River Trips, if you don't have any previous SUP experience then your options are either a Wye Adventures Intro Session (singles can join intro sessions) that runs weekly or hire a board from our sister company Wye Canoes for a self-guided 1pm Static Session.
For groups our professional coaches can also run any guided river journey for you from 1/2 day to multiple days, develop your skills and enjoy the stunning Wye valley at the same time, contact us for more information about guided SUP trips and check out our events page for dates of sessions anyone can join.
We supply pretty much everything you need, boards, wetsuits, paddles, buoyancy aids, helmets etc, all you need to bring are clothes you don’t mind potentially getting wet and something for your feet like old trainers etc .(no flip flips or crocs please!)
