Training & Fitness
Paddling With Komodo
- September – April: we train 4 sessions per week.
- May: we gradually drop our early morning and afternoon weekday sessions as the weather turns colder and darker. Around 2-3 sessions per week
- June – July: 1 session per week. We paddle on Sunday mornings only as the cold and darkness are prohibitive and unsafe.
- August: 2 sessions per week. We gradually add more sessions as the weather improves and the mornings/afternoons become lighter.
