Boof is the name given to the technique used to run drops that may or may not have a shallow landing. It involves the paddler landing the kayak flat at the bottom of the drop. The name of the move comes from the sound the boat makes when it hits the water at the bottom of the drop.

Boat position, body position, paddle placement and good timing are required to get the boof just right.
