i have never had a lifeguard tell me I can't flip into the pool. well, that's not entirely true. In Prince George, BC the lifeguards wouldn't let us flip off the 7m and 10m platforms... so I did a big ol' backflip and got kicked out. Other then that though, I've never had problems flipping at the pool.
I got some friends who are lifeguards at one of the pools in Winnipeg, MB and I go there just as the pool closes at night, we go up to the 10m, turn the bubbles on and go at it! fun as hell - you know, for those times I'm in Winnipeg of course.
