The kiteboarding lessons at In the loop Townsville were excellent! Marvin is a real pro to deal with, he's patient and delivers the information first rate. The lessons were a lot of fun, you get straight out in the water while your learning, which really helps it all sink in. He had me up ridding in no time. Thanks mate!

I did my kiteboarding and stand up paddle lessons with Intheloop. They were friendly, professional and made the experience a lot of fun. We also did a Stand Up Paddle tour with them exploring some nice locations in Townsville. I recommend exploring the beaches and waters with this eco friendly operator!

Having a son who took up kiteboarding some years ago. Marvin at Intheloop, helped him progress from not only kiting but now SUPing, they now have a funky trendy surf, ski shop down The Mall. This is the perfect attraction for Townsville due to not having surf, so next best is kiting or stand up paddle boarding. Intheloop is Townsvilles... More

I had a great lesson with Dave. His instruction was clear and helpful. He was considerate of customer requests, going out of his way to fit in some late comers who needed to reschedule their lesson. I enjoyed my first SUP lesson and will definitely give it a go again. Thanks Dave.

My husband and I popped in to see about hiring some bikes. Obviously we were not important enough as the look on the girls face was "really". We are in our late 50ish and she gave us a look as if we were wasting her time!! We were told it was $40 per bike whether for a full day or... More

Hello, sorry about your experience trying to hire bikes with us in Townsville. There must have been an misunderstanding because the pricing is clearly stated on our website and the staff communicated that. To clarify the Townsville bike rental is $30 and overnight hire $40. We do offer long term hire at discounted prices and have different bikes including MTB,... More

The location was great for meals and entertainment however a car is a must. Book a in town not at the air port as it appears there is a variance in prices.
