It is using the ASL word for sea turtle... which is reperasented by placing one hand on top of the other, palms down, and extending the thumbs outward rotating. The end result should look like a turtle swimming. Use this gesture when a conversation or situation becomes awkward. This is a good way to get attention of friends to either rescue you or the one making it awkward understand what they are doin.
