Hey all, looking for tips on where to get gear in Townsville please. After a harness (want to try before I buy!) but nowhere really seems to stock female specific gear. Thanks.

Small population and not many female kiters probably means too much risk to stock a range of ladies harnesses. Your best bet is to research on the manufacturers websites then discuss size and fit with a shop.
Otherwise meet up with local kiters and ask to try theirs on.

Just go and see Marvin from IntheLoop on Flinders St, or come and say Hi at the local beach - Pallarenda, on a windy day. Lots of female kiters here.

Thanks Northern Kites! I haven't been able to get down while there's any wind yet (new to the area) so hopefully can meet the shop and locals soon!
