The year was 1979, on the Somerset coast. Inside a small shed with a leaky tin roof you’d have found a figure, working hard and covered in a fine layer of glass fibre dust: Andy Knight wanted some better gear to take paddling, and had decided to make it himself. The sign on the door read ‘Palm Glass Fibre Mouldings Ltd’. Just down the road, Andy can still be found working away on something new. The shed is now a little bigger, and Andy’s been joined team of staff, but they still work with the same determination at the same goal; making gear for paddlers.
