Daily Images | Stone Skimming

Daily Images – Stone Skimming or Stone Skipping is a pastime which involves throwing a stone with a flattened surface across a lake or other body of water in such a way that it bounces off the surface of the water. The object of the game is to see how many times a stone can be made to bounce before sinking.

The world record according to the Guinness Book of Records is 51 skips, set by Russell Byars on July 19, 2007. The previous record was 40 skips, set by Kurt Steiner at the Pennsylvania Qualifying Stone Skipping Tournament on September 14, 2002.
