SWOOPSTYLE SKYDIVING


The Red Bull Sky Dive Team had some fun in Wolfgangsee, Austria. Swoopstyle stands for an aerial maneuver during which a skydiver picks up speed by twisting at 200-350 meters above ground, extending the 'swoop', which enables them to hover 100-200 meters above ground, much longer than usual. The Red Bull Skydive Team made sure to take full advantage of this exhilarating form of skydiving.
