Verb: To navigate a flowing body of water, usually a river, while standing up. Comparable to rock-hopping, however, the terms differ in that rock-hopping implies an objective to not get wet while waterstomping is much wetter by nature, involving almost continual stompage of water and only intermittent hops on rocks.

The term is believed to have originated in the rural hills of Appalachia where waterstomping was a way of life for people whose livelihood was based on how many fish were caught in mountain rivers and streams.
