The lake that they are referring to is the first one you come across after Claire gets captured and you're being attacked by a helicopter as you cross it. There is a cabin with supplies in the middle of it.

You'll get hyperspeed later in the game after you've acquired the Omega Armor and the Friction Dampener. You'll have to cross the lake to get to your next objective after getting hyperspeed, so this is the best time to get it. The lake will disappear a short time after this as part of the story. Starting on the left side, kill the solider and Bomba inside the cave so you can get a running start. It takes 5 seconds of constant momentum to activate hyperspeed.

If you start as far left as you can in the cave, you should activate it right as you start onto the dock. Run constantly to keep the power active. Right before the cabin you'll have to jump to get onto the island, and you should run up the logs and over the house, landing back on top of the lake, still running as long as you don't let go of the stick and X. You'll have to jump once again to clear the dock on the other side of the lake, and when you do, achievement unlocked.
