I sat on the beach in Destin and watched 2 brothers try to learn the art of skim boarding. They tried and tried. Family laughed each time one fell or one failed.  Finally a teen in the group told them to go to the sandbar and try there, so they did.
They tried and they tried.
A group of guys were sitting nearby where the brothers were doing their best to succeed. One of the guys got out of his chair, ran over and gave them each a quick lesson before packing up his cooler and leaving the beach.
The brothers got it! Their family, sitting near me suddenly stopped laughing. Cheers.
