I was practicing [s[ept]ic] this at the weekend i love the ache in ur shoulder the next day - knowing u really tried hard 2 get those nine bounces 0 Vote up! also a skips man. distance can't be the right answer. 0 Vote up! i feel it's a core dad-skill 0 Vote up! I would also suggest that skip number is the more impressive stat. Otherwise you can just do a huge first bounce for distance which i would say is easier than a proper barnes-wallacer 0 Vote up! I guess you may need to have VAR or Hawkeye in the mix for skip count. Some of those late-stage, vinegar skips can turn into a trembled mess and it's hard to count 'em. 1 Vote up! As we say in the skimming world: Distance for show, skips for dough. 0 Vote up! other beach-dad-skills: mahoosive holes tunnels catching crabs with bare hands not showing weakness in cold water. 0 Vote up! I also feel that the use of slate rather goes against the spirit of the game 1 Vote up!

My old flat mate competed in that competition once. He finished top 5. 0 Vote up! “You can’t judge by skips.” Doh 0 Vote up! Think your subconscious is telling you something. 0 Vote up!
