Seriously though... there is a world of difference between walking on water, and running on it. If you run really fast, you can cover a lot of distance before gravity takes over.

Don't try this in a swimming pool as the chlorine causes the water to loose the consistency river water has and your chance of falling increases.

There is no trick in floating horizontally. It works on the buoyancy principle. Anybody can do it.
