Small town Texas country boy. Large town high school graduate (Houston). Left Texas for college and the military. Ended up traveling around Europe. I really liked the Costa Brava in Spain and a little fishing village there. It was relaxing and absolutely beautiful.
I met a French girl, married her, returned to Texas and we had a son which has now led to a grandson, both born in Texas.
There are no sand beaches in this little Spanish bay there as the terrain is volcanic, so the beaches are full of wonderful flat slate stones. I continued the childhood practice and pastime of skipping the wonderful flat slate stones there which eventually led to becoming the Guinness record-holder in this ancient activity.
As they say, 'if I can do it, you can do it'. This book presents everything you will need to know to improve your skipping performance, enhance your pleasure and become, if you choose, the world's greatest and have FUN doing it. Hope you enjoy!
