Meet Kurt and Russ, two middle-aged stone skippers jockeying for the Guinness World Record for most skips.
Kurt has a good heart, but we still have some questions about that hole he’s digging in his yard, and he’s definitely not making it out of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory in one piece.
There’s also Max, the young stone skipping upstart, and his father Eric, a stone skipping competition announcer who doesn’t have a big vocabulary but does have the enthusiasm of someone announcing the Kentucky Derby.
Is this the next frontier of athleticism? Is stone skipping an ancient duck hunting technique? We don’t know, but Dave is getting flashbacks to discus throwing in junior high gym class and Jaime is reliving her Playstation glory days.
Before it’s all said and done, we’ll hear a surprisingly good rendition of the national anthem, see a gross injury, and witness a new world record that will likely stand until the robot overlords take over all sports.
No fudge was harmed, consumed, or even really seen in this documentary.
We’re suffering through and reporting back on Skips Stones for Fudge, available to stream on Amazon Prime.
