I would just like to put out a warning about SNAPPING TURTLES at Milang. I have had some reports about snapping turtles attacking certain kiteboarders at Milang, the turtles are heavily camouflaged and extremely dangerous. The turtles seem to gather around 12M Switchblade kites and Naish boards. No one else has seen these turtles at Milang except one rider, this rider has also told me he has had a counter meal with a couple of them at the local pub!!!!!!!!

Could all riders please keep an eye out for this dangerous creature and also the Snapping turtles.

Thanks

Travis
