Flying Through the Air- Odd Shots Monday


I live at the pool in the summer. I have been a long-time lifeguard and recently began coaching. During the hourly break, my fellow lifeguards and I usually swim in the pool and go off the boards. This is Daniel. He was attempting to do a gainer, which consists of the diver jumping straight off the board and flipping backwards. I got this shot mid-flip, well sorta. Enjoy your Odd Shots Monday!

Nice action. But how did he finish?

Maybe the pirates were after him?

And I'll bet Daniel wishes the high board was still there, right? Do you think he'd do a gainer off that? Love this snap!

He looks like he just kicked a soccer ball! ;)
Happy Odd Shots Monday!
