No, it's real! But you can only do it if you really believe in it. Go and try it yourself!

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.

It reminds me of the famous "Megawoosh" stunt that was so well-created and realistic appearing:

Oh, I forget to tell you, it works best if you put your best clothes on! So go on and try it!

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.

Once my friend told me that his swimming teacher could float(horizontally) on water without any equipment.

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