if you want to be ahead of the game, the preffered method would be technical move called the belly flop, no deep descents there.
Of course if you are not into the pain thing there are other options.
String a cargo net between two rafts just below the surface attached with bungy cords, see how high you can rebound. The normal signal that all is ready is jump chump.
We are having a pool session later this fall to work on technic.
