Can we get a show of hands? Who does it when the lifeguard/kids aren't looking?
Seriously, do people not know how to do a shallow dive? Too afraid an uncoordinated/uneducated kid will run, jump and dive straight down?
Why hasn't our government passed a law if this is so dangerous?
I don't know the correct name of the dive into the pool that is my favorite for making splashes. Basically you jump up and then as you are approaching the water perfectly horizontal you bring your knees and elbows in forming a crude upside down U. You hit the water and your U shape pulls water down into the pool, as you go down you expand yourself and push you belly (pop your body) downwards, causing a huge splash. This is principally the same as if you cup your hand and push it palm down into the water causing a splash and accompanying noise.
I do that in 3' too...
Of course i'm not talking crazy like this guy...
