Of course, after a while even most exciting sport gets a little bit boring. Swooping is just another way for people to make skydiving more interesting - it's more of an evolution in skydiving techniques than it is its own sport. Even so, there are a lot of people for whom swooping is sport of choice.
It is not really known when swooping first started, though it definitely began during past 20 years. It was a mixture of people looking for a new type of skydiving, as well as result of new, high performance parachutes. These parachutes allow so much control that a lot of people are able to make sudden turns right before they land. Once it was discovered that this was possible, a new sport began. Swooping is currently gaining in popularity, and there is now a large and growing following for this sport all over world.
