The Palm Groms – Mentorship Programme

Finding its spark from the progression and love for the sport on display by young kayakers at Bren’s Park Jam events, Palm knew they had to take a larger role in the development of the next generation of kayakers through our sponsorship programmes.

Over the past year or so, Palm and their team paddlers have been working hard behind the scenes developing the Palm Groms Mentorship Programme with a small group of hand-picked junior paddlers from across the country and beyond. Their goal is to support aspiring young kayakers in becoming the best paddlers they can be – from having access to the Palm Equipment range to having a designated mentor from the Palm team to help them develop their skills, future goals and paddling ethos.

Whether that’s helping them learn a new trick, developing their safety skills or simply getting out on the water and shredding with them. The emphasis will always be on having a good time! 

The priority of the programme is having fun on the water, with four pillars that uphold the overall goals and values of the mentorship – flow & style, adventure, safety and spirit. From sharing Palm’s team culture in developing friendly, approachable paddlers who are encouraged to think differently and creatively, to the more practical elements of developing their own style, learning clean techniques, planning their next adventure and being safe!

Palm has always supported young paddlers’ progression in paddle sport and recogising their talent – through developing gear, supporting them at an early age (like Bren Orton since age 16), hosting annual online Palm Groms Summer of Fun competitions and supporting programmes like the Cardiff Kids’ Academy run by Cardiff International White Water. The Palm Groms Mentorship Programme is the next step in Palm’s commitment to nurturing young paddlers and they can’t wait to share what comes next.

To keep up to date with the Palm Groms journey please follow along with the groms on Instagram @palmgroms and keep an eye out for our Palm Groms logo on the water and online.

If you know of juniors with great potential, make sure they take part in the annual online Palm Groms Summer of Fun competition on Instagram @palmgroms, and attend the Park Jam tour as well as any other events Palm attends for the chance to get involved.

Thule Wing Bar Edge – Review

For the last three years I have been using a set of Thule Wing Bar Edge Roof bars on my cars. The first car this set was used on was a F56 Mini John Cooper Works with a set of factory fitted flush roof rails and now they sit on my F31 BMW 3 Series Wagon/Touring.

Thule Wing Bar Edge – Review

Interestingly the last time I reviewed a set of roof bars was on my last F31 BMW in around 2016.

Now this set of bars is the latest from Thule and in my opinion is an upgrade to the Thule WingBars. The biggest difference is the much lower profile bar and clamp. It means that they offer a close-fit to the roofline for a low-profiled roof bar system. This was one of the main reason I wanted to go with Thule rather than the BMW OE roof bars that stand pretty tall.

When first bought I picked up the complete set from the Roofbox company here in the UK. I plugged the details of the Mini into the system and the parts were grouped together to order. They also did a key barrel matching service so I could have one key fit all of the bars and bike racks that I own.
