Pool Jumpers: Documentary Immortalizes Summer Pastime (VIDEO)

Summer's almost here, which means that it's time to get ready for everyone's favorite activity: catching a ball in mid-air while jumping in a pool. With the exception of the times when some chucker uses a Nerf ball (that'll fill with water in two seconds, thank you), it's pretty much the most fun you can have at a summer bash. It's so good that the sketch group The Birthday Boys made an parody of films like "Dogtown and Z-Boys" that "illuminates the unlikely pioneers that shaped the way we see pools." It's a fitting tribute to a much-loved, but long overlooked pastime.
