Pool Jumps that Cause the Biggest Splash

As the pool fun experts, we've done our fair share of pool jumps and know which ones cause the biggest splash. Keep reading to find out more on how you can mimic these iconic and exciting ways to jump in the pool.


The classic cannonball is a tried and true favorite for making a big splash. This jump requires you to tuck your knees into your chest and hug them tightly as you jump off the side of the pool. As you hit the water, you'll create a massive explosion of water that will impress everyone around you.

Belly Flop

While the belly flop may not be the most graceful jump, it's certainly one that will create a huge splash. This jump requires you to jump off the side of the pool and land flat on your belly. The key to making a big splash is to make sure that your arms are straight out in front of you and your legs are together. The more surface area you hit, the bigger the splash will be.


If you're feeling adventurous, try a flip off the diving board. This jump requires you to jump off the board and do a full 360-degree flip before entering the water. Not only will you create a big splash, but you'll also impress everyone with your acrobatic skills.

The Bomb

Similar to the cannonball, the bomb requires you to jump off the side of the pool with your knees tucked into your chest. The key difference is that you'll need to extend your legs and arms just before hitting the water, creating a massive splash that will send water flying in all directions.

The Running Jump

For a different kind of splash, try a running jump into the pool. This jump requires you to run towards the pool and jump off the side with as much force as possible. As you hit the water, your momentum will carry you further into the pool, creating a large wave that will send water splashing out of the pool.
