What is the trick called where the rider plunges straight down into the water and emerges from the water facing the opposite direction? I am not referring to a 180sub.
Are there any other tips or tricks besides getting the jet as vertically into a sub without going over the bars and once under water one uses his legs as rudder in combination with the steering to make the U-turn. I have picked up rumors about stopping the engine while diving down. The buoyancy will invert the jetski and on the way up you restart it. Did not try this approach yet.

You talking where the rider comes up standing backwards or the ski coming back up the same direction it came from? Either way there was not really a name for it.

The second one. As soon as my pump is under water I hit WOT. I managed to do it once but not to ride it out. The hardest part for me is to get a good and consistent entry angle. Without going over the bars or being to shallow. I guess I have to spend more time jumping my bars.

But when you hit it and go down deep, I would trail a leg and it would act as a rudder or outrigger for balance. Just crank the bars and give some gas, ski would rotate under your and come back up way you turned it.
That is exactly what I try to do. I guess I was hoping for some secret trick
