To perform the flying squirrel, grab your ankles after your feet have left the board's edge. Finish by leaning forward. 

Practicing safe methods of diving is great alternative exercise or just a fine way to impress onlookers at the local swimming pool.

Learning a variety of diving board tricks will improve your technique and help you master the art of the high dive. Never dive alone - always have someone present in case you run into trouble - and spend plenty of time practicing the simpler dives before advancing to the more difficult maneuvers.
