Stone skimming is a worldwide pastime known by many names, some more peculiar than others, depending on where you come from it could be called...

  • Skipping rocks
  • Baking pancakes
  • Ducks and drakes
  • Letting the frogs out
  • Letting the ducks out
  • Making white-caps

Whatever you choose to call it, the rules and fun factor are the same wherever you play and now thanks to Cumbria Tourism you can play it literally anywhere at all...
