I don't get it. He will search up and down the beach, looking for the "perfect rock." This can sometimes take quite awhile.
When he finds the "perfect rock," he then hurls it into the water. This takes a few seconds.
I think the "point" is to hurl the rock at the exact perfect angle and trajectory so as to make said rock skip across the surface of the water before sinking to the bottom of the lake.
If that can be considered a point.
I think it's a Guy Thing.
Or just a dumb thing.
