Swooping is the apex discipline within the realm of “canopy piloting,” which describes all the complex maneuvers and dynamics that a skydiver executes under his or her parachute.
Swoopers think differently than most skydivers. When you’re swooping, skydiving isn’t about freefall. It’s about the spin-tastic parachute flight, capped off by a super-fast landing with lots of acrobatic flair. When executed by skilled practitioners, swooping landings can last a very long time, with the skydiver holding themselves in a dashing pose as the ground (or water) zips along beneath their waiting feet
In sports without a federation, or where this is not decided or clear, Ekstremsportveko will at all times rely on its principles and values. That is why Ekstremsportveko condemns Russia's invasion of Ukraine.
Ekstremsportveko excludes Russia and Belarus from organized sports competitions, championships and cups. Athletes and guests from these countries can participate in Ekstremsportveko outside of organized competitions, championships and cups, where one does not represent Russia or Belarus. The exclusion does not apply to athletes under 18 years of age (junior). If an athlete chooses to circumvent these regulations, one may be deleted from the starting list and/or the result list.
