Andy McDonald found the perfect spot to use his squirt boat  at Gyro Park beach on Tuesday evening. The confluence of the Columbia River with the flow from the beach area allowed McDonald to get maximum enjoyment. Squirt boating is similar to whitewater kayaking with the thin boat barely keeping the paddler above water. The boat is designed to be used on the surface as well as underwater using the current to manoeuvre and perform tricks. McDonald submerged himself in the Columbia with a corkscrew motion and stayed under water for a few seconds riding the current before resurfacing. He described the feeling similar to squirting a pumpkin seed from your finger tips
