Palm Equipment, Clothing and accessories
Since the company's inception in 1979, Palm's founder Andy Knight has had one goal in mind. To keep things simple and make gear for paddlers. Fast forward to the present day, Palm Equipment has become a legendary name in paddlesports globally. All while maintaining the same simple ethos upon which its foundations were built.
Their mission to provide a lifetime of paddlesport fun whilst respecting the environment has become widely evident, mainly through their creation of a unique range of high-quality gear. Since Andy's first-ever production kayak coined "the stingray," today the company boasts an extensive range of gear for water and paddle sports enthusiasts. This includes buoyancy aids, dry bags and top-of-the-range white water gear.
Since the very beginning, the company have always pushed the boundaries of innovation. Palm Equipment's commitment to providing top-notch gear for whitewater is only matched by its dedication to offering a good solid range of accessories, clothing and wetsuits to cater to all paddle sport enthusiasts.
Today, the company has become a mainstay for all levels of ability. No one is surprised that both beginners and the top kayakers in the world choose Palm Equipment. Palm has remained the brand of choice for kayakers and paddlesport enthusiasts globally, for those who are looking for the best performance and durability on the water.
Through the company's continued dedication to the world of paddling, Palm continues to innovate kayak and canoe gear worldwide. Substantial growth has seen Palm set up a European distribution base in Asbach, Germany as well as their own manufacturing facilities in Hanoi, Vietnam.
Their home and headquarters are in Clevedon, UK, a stone's throw from where the company started way back in 1979.
