finally I learned how to tumble turn and i've read somewhere here that you should dolphin kick on your back, so now my question is... when do you turn to make yourself in the right position for the crawl?

After you push off the wall on your back, you should dolphin kick 3-4 times and while doing so, slowly rotate until you are in correct position for your breakout.

I got some really useful advice on flip turns from a series of online videos on the GoSwim website.
The final one shows how to rotate your lower body as your feet hit the wall so as to push off in a side-balance position, rather than on your back.
