Whoosh is the term to describe an enthusiastic swishing sound, often used when one is talking about something totally unbelievable that perhaps may have zoomed past unbelievably fast, both in a literal or figurative sense.
"So, like, there was this thing, and it was so fast, man, it was like WHOOSH and then bam! It was gone!"

or

"I dunno, man, I'm totally out of it today. I mean, today somebody was talking to me and everything they said just kept whooshing past me, y'know? Just like whoosh, and stuff."
