HM Waterfall can be used while surfing and you’re facing towards a big waterfall. Simply press the A button next to the waterfall to use the Hidden Move. Or bring up the Hidden Moves app on your Pokétch and select “Waterfall”.

That’s for ascending waterfalls; to descend a waterfall, you don’t need to do anything extra. Just swim into the waterfall to automatically travel down.
