Squirt Boats

This highly specialized extreme sport involves a squirt boat, which looks similar to a kayak. This small, sleek craft enables boaters to paddle on top of, as well as beneath the water’s surface. We travel to the lower Clackamas River to watch some squirt boaters in action. Here we see the so-called ‘Mystery Move’ that allows the boaters to twirl and paddle underwater.
