my bf always think photos like this are photoshopped -.- (because the water looks blurry like some brush i guess) Could someone give me a simple explanation on why the water is blurred out? is it the type of camera or does the movement in the water just make it look blurry? Would be nice to know k thanks

It's just a longer exposure, it's not photoshopped. It's just like if you take a picture while moving and it blurs...except the camera is on a tripod and not moving, but the water is. So it appears blurry in the end.
