Regular foot fins mess up your turns. In particular, they make it difficult to get your feet in the correct position to push off properly from the wall. Using foot fins can give you bad turning habits for your normal swimming too. They cause problems with flip turns and wall turns. Sometimes the water suction holds the foot fin on the wall and this suction can even pull the fin off your foot.
For flip turns (tumble turns), go into the turn a little bit harder. Keep your knees straight until the fins lift out of the water. This can be a training benefit. Complete the flip turn by pushing off from the wall with your feet as normal.
For wall turns, bring your knees up and forward as you come to the wall. Then push off from the wall with your feet as normal.
Now you can wear fins for pool swimming and flip turn or wall turn normally!
