Beware the Alligator!

This great little pic came in from Hobbsy, he’s highlighting one of the many perils at Fishermans (brownwater) beach.

Over the past month I’ve seen 2 kites get wrecked on this puppy, numerous fins have been lost to it’s bite and I believe there is also some skin stuck between it’s teeth!

Last night I heard of the demise to another kite to this hungry monster! To those of you who don’t know where this rock is please see the image below from our ‘right of way part 1′ post. ┬áIt’s the yellow highlighted section at on the left of the image at the bottom that goes out from the beach!

Also be aware that it could be ‘lurking’ low in the water at high tide and a lot longer than you expect!

Why am I telling you this? Well as much as I love to see the kite industry kept alive in new gear and kite repairs its pretty dangerous and a PITA.. so you’ve been warned!

Nice one Davey!
