Stone-Skipping Record!

Posted October 5, 2007

Russ Byars holds the new world record for skipping stones.  Here he is skipping a rock about 50 times across a river.

The 43-year-old engineer shattered the old record of 40 skips with a big 51-skip throw in July.  Guinness officials certified him just this weekend.
