How to flip into the sea in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

To flip into the sea in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you will be needing to hold the sprint button “B” before pushing “A” just as you reach the edge of the platform you’re jumping off.

You can flip into the sea from rocks, the wooden pier, and also the airport platform. Why not show off your skills when visiting a friend’s island by immediately launching yourself into the ocean from the airport entrance? This will also allow you to navigate around walls and other blockades that some users put down to stop visitors from exploring the whole island.

If you’re hosting visitors to your island, to sell Turnips and for other activities, you’ll want to be wary of this new trick. Visitors may circumvent your existing walls and access parts of the island that you wanted to keep private. You’re going to have to rethink your security for this one!

Being able to flip into the sea is just one of multiple changes made by the new patch. There’s also another Summer Update scheduled to launch this August, which should bring even more features to the game.

Another recent change to Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the day that everyone’s favorite dog musician, K.K. Slider, now appears. Make sure you’re up to speed on his schedule so you don’t miss him.
