You need to be very observant, keep an eye on the display, and trigger finger, and a lot of luck. AF system with high quality and fast focus lens also help a lot.

These letters under the image look like a name and an email address. Why not ask the photographer?

If it is staged as you assume, there's no luck involved.
Just taking a lot of images until you get the right one.

Take multiple shots. But this is a sports event, so that's probably set anyway.

Thanks you, Sir----I will try one day, and Hope to get the Super Lucky one like that PRO. May Be I can set Manual Focus at the Subject head, Set High ISO-800 in the day light, Set  Shutter Speed at 1/4000 sec or 1/ 8000 Sec. and  Continuous shooting  like machine gun----May be get 1 good photo of 200+ Photos.
Thanks again.
Surapon.
PS. I will try shooting with the water hose  with my dog first, before hire the beautiful model.

Experiment with shutter speed 1/400 should be a good starting point.  Place the subject between you and the sun (she is back lit).  I would advise setting the camera on the fastest exposure rate possible, and keep trying.  Check your exposures, and histograms.  Watch you f stops.  Shouldn't be that hard as she is fixed in one position.  Lighting will be important so choose the time of day later in the afternoon, with good sun.

If this is an entirely staged shot, use flashes to freeze the motion.

1)  for setup:  I would think that a model need to place her head completely into water and then quickly standing straight up to make that look.  there are some videos talking about this technique on youtube, kinda similar to this, from thenikonguy and karl taylor, etc (i do not remember names of videos since i watched it a while ago).

2) for candid:  +1 to ajfotofilmagem's comment on "you need to be very observant, keep an eye on the display, and trigger finger, and a lot of luck."

here is an candid captured image of my daughter playing around with water at a lake (note:  if i remember correctly, my shutter was less than 1/500.):

The pool looks pretty shallow, so make sure a bit of a model's back is visible when she goes under water. This way you just pre-focus on her. After that just do what others said - use fast shutter, flash if possible. This is not a difficult shot really..

A higher exposure rate will freeze the action.  In order to see motion, you need a longer exposure.

This a shot of a water fountain using 5D Mark II, EF 50mm f/1.4 @ f/16, 1/30 and ISO 100.  I had tried at higher speeds and simply got individual drops of water.

Try a fast lens - something like 85/1.8
Manual exposure, set to wide open and high shutter speed.
Set camera to high-speed continuous shooting
Manual focus, prefocus on model.
Count down three, two, one, go.  Squeeze shutter and hold.

Repeat half a dozen times.  Pick the best shot and delete the rest.

WIDE open?  Wouldn't that put the waves in front/behind the model OOF?  Wouldn't you need 2.8 for that?

Here you go... this one was at 1/400th @f7.1 and @ 24mm.  No flash was involved.  One point is to try to keep the light (sun in this case) on the opposite side from you from the subject.  In other words... light coming from the same direction as you will not show off the water droplets as well. 

Good Luck!
