If you're talking hucking a fat 630 to impress the entire DZ, that's a little down the track in canopy progression - and by that stage you should have a good understanding of canopy piloting (and already know the answer to this question).
If you don't have a good understanding and are at that stage - STOP NOW. On the other hand, learning the foundations and basics of swooping can be started early on, but this doesn't mean you can start doing 270's right away.
You might not realise it, but if you're doing a straight in approach and flare resulting in planing out and traveling across the ground before touching down, then you're swooping!
The difference between you and the experienced canopy pilot is they are doing a high degree turn to generate more power and using rear riser input to maximise their distance traveled across the ground or swoop.
Get coaching so you get the right information early and have the building blocks to one day maybe huck that fat 630! We have a few blog articles that have information on progressing your canopy skills. Pop over to our Blog Homepage to read more.
For a fun read, our '18 Levels of Swoop: Which one are you?' lists all the different types of swoopers that can be found on the DZ.
