Paddleboarding – or Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) – has become increasingly popular on the rivers in recent years and there are many companies operating from Ross-on-Wye who run beginner and advanced paddleboarding sessions or even yoga paddleboarding. This gentle outdoor pursuit requires a little balance and concentration to start – but after you’ve mastered the basic techniques, you can enjoy gliding gently down the river, taking in the wildlife along the river banks.

These are some main operators who launch from the banks at Long Acre near the Hope and Anchor:
