Skips Stones for Fudge

USA, 2016, 52 Minutes Running Time

Awarded Best Film 2016 at the Capital City Film Festival

For over a decade, Russ “Rock Bottom” Byars and Kurt “Mountain Man” Steiner have endured a rivalry that lifted competitive stone skipping to unthinkable heights. Tested by physical ailments, emotional hardships and the rise of young talent, these obscure legends fight to cement their place in the record books.   The idea was born on Memorial Day 2014 outside Austin, TX. Directors Ryan Seitz and Daniel Skaggs were celebrating with friends on a secluded lake. Beers were flowing, stones were skipping and things got competitive. Eventually the thought materialized, “What if people skipped stones competitively?”
