Pre-splash source

The pre-splash is the result of a spray of water coming out of a pipe below the diving board. Some pools add this spray to make the surface of the water visible to divers so they can judge their dive angles better.

It also sounds nice.

What you're looking at is

the water version of the YMCA song. Not enough film in the camera for M, C and A today. Darn the luck.

Pre-splash

What's causing the water in the pool to splash before he lands in the water??

I'm Howard Hughes

and I can fly!

Dude shaves his armpits.

Just saying. Tidy look.

Water water everywhere

The fire extinguisher hanging on the wall is filled with water, just like the pool!

Judging by his trajectory

he's gonna snag his right butt-cheek on that diving board. Ouch!

Griswold

Party of one, your pool is ready.

Pool Man ID

Carmen Miranda's agent.

I'd sit quietly in my room

if I had a tree growing out of my head. Bravo, sir!

The missing half

Oh, well it could have been me. Seems I enjoyed the same fun then !!!
