Well while you are swimming on your back, when you reach the flags, count your strokes to see how many take you to the wall. Lets say 5. So now from the flags take 4 strokes flip on to your front and take one freestyle stroke and do a flipturn. Make sure you do not stay on your front too long or you will be disqualified. Push off the wall and do your kickout and start swimming.
