The Best Way to Skip Stones
The recent world record for stone skipping is 40 skips, but everyone has to begin somewhere.
- Find smooth, flat stones. “The stone should fit in the space created between your pointer finger and thumb when making the
A-OK sign,” says Jill Tipograph, director of the online summer-camp directory Everything Summer.
- Pinch the stone between your thumb and middle finger and wrap your pointer around the top of the stone like a hook. Lift your
arm up and back and toss the stone with a snapping motion.
- “Aim to hit the water about 15 to 20 feet from the shoreline,” says Tipograph. Toss the stone at a 20-degree angle for a greater chance of skipping multiple times.
