The fanciest dive that was ever dove

Was done by Melissa of Coconut Grove.

She bounced on the board and flew into the air

With a twist of her head and a twirl of her hair.

She did thirty-four jackknives, backflipped and spun,

Quadrupled gainered, and reached for the sun,

And then somersaulted nine times and a quarter

And looked down and saw that the pool had no water.

Assuming that a jackknife is 180 degrees, and all the other diving steps (backflip, spin, gainer, somersault) are 360 degrees, how many degrees did Melissa turn?
