The controversial 1930s sport of Turtle riding

Turtle riding 1930s

The strange and (thankfully) short-lived sport of turtle riding was popular for a while in Australia during the 1920s and 1930s. The general idea seemed to be that you would sit astride a turtle as it heaved its way across the sand and tried to stay ‘aboard’ once it was swimming in the sea.  Probably not something that the WWF would be particularly keen to encourage nowadays I would imagine…
