Skipping stones is usually a laid back beach activity, but it turned into a serious competition.
Discover Presque Isle visitors made their way to the Waterworks pond to see Kurt Steiner go for the world record in stone skipping.
He was the world record holder from 2002 to 2007, with 34 skips.
On Saturday he attempted to reclaim his title and beat the current world record of 51 skips.
His skill comes from years of crafting technique, and finding the perfect stone.
"You can use a rock and spin it very fast and that will rack up a lot of skips in a short distance if you throw it right," Steiner said, "or you can throw a slightly heavier rock and throw it really hard and that'll carry farther."
We don't have official word yet, but Steiner says he has "high confidence" that he did break the record on Saturday.
He also broke a record for distance, skipping a stone 320 feet.
