sports facts:

rock skipping record - 40 skips by Kurt Steiner in 2003

longest continuous pogo-stick jumping distance is 23.11 miles (no, not just one jump, but many) set by Ashrita Furman in 1997. click for more records held by "Mr. Versatility"

long distance boomerang world record is 238 meters (1108.92 ft), held by Manuel Schutz of Switzerland. The boomerang's total flight path would have exceeded 500 meters (1640.42 ft). More boomerang info

records surprisingly not set or at least not found on the net:

can kicking endurance record
frisbee retrieving distance by a dog
yo-yoing marathon endurance record
number of successful/continuous paddle ball "hits/returns"
jump rope marathon record

addendum: in 19something or another, Ralph Malph, of "Happy Days" fame attempted the world record for "lowest jump". The Guinness Book of Records representative did not acknowledge it. Saw the episode. think he succeeded.
