An Impressive Video Captures a World Record-Setting 88 Stone Skips in a Single Throw

An impressive video captures the 2013 world record-setting stone thrown by Kurt Steiner at Allegheny National Forest in Pennsylvania. Steiner’s stone skipped 88 times before falling below the water’s surface. The video highlights each individual skip and points out previous records as Steiner’s stone skips past them.

Stone skipping works by generating lift as it turns, allowing the stone to push itself off the surface of the water.
