My family and I had beginner lessons with Martin and then hired a few boards for a day. Martin explained everything very clearly and we were quickly on our way. Martin's knowledge of the sport and equipment and also the area around the Townsville beaches helped up to really enjoy our time on the boards. I couldn't recommend them highly enough.5.0 out of 5 starsMargaret S - November 21, 20175.0 out of 5 starsGina H - October 23, 2017
We hired 3 paddleboards at The Strand in Townsville. We got the boats at 6am for a magic sunrise sup. Intheloop stand up paddle boarding staff were very helpful and easy to deal with. I just texted and booked it in straight away then went out the following morning. We will be back for more SUP sessions at The Sailing Club.5.0 out of 5 starsAmy W - October 3, 2017IntheLoop Australia320-322 Flinders MallTowsnsville, QLD 4810Mobile Phone: 0415 837 484
