38 skips, 7 lines on the trophy... and some fudge
Posted: August 24, 2015

Kurt ‘The Mountain Man’ Steiner won this year’s PA Stone Skipping Championship on Saturday, during the Rock In River Fest, at Franklin’s Riverfront Park, with 38 skips. Steiner holds the Guinness World Record for skips — 88. (Steiner lives on a mountain in Emporium, hence his nickname.) The Herald’s own Dave ‘Spiderman’ Ohmer, of Corry, a two-time PA Stone Skipping champ, took second place this year, with 37 skips. Skipping into third place was Brian Ferry, of Warren. This puts Steiner’s name on the trophy a total of seven times. He will be one of the stone skippers featured in an upcoming feature-length documentary about stone skipping, ‘Skip Stones For Fudge,’ which is expected to be completed sometime in the next half-year. How does the documentary get its name? The winner of the stone skipping contest wins a batch of fudge.
