Swimming is easier on joints and I think you get well rounded.

how often do you think you would have to swim though to build muscle?

I second that, I started playing couple months ago at pickup games and it's the best cardio ever. Bike riding is also good but be careful it can take a toll on your knees if you over do it.

Hell, do anything active. Weight training helps to build muscle mass, running will build your endurance as will swimming (easier on the joints), Skate, play tennis, soccer.

Just get active, it's really nothing too complicated unless you want to understand the finer points of your activity of choice.

I'm not too sure I understand what you're trying to do. The thing is, stronger leg muscles may not necessarily help you land jumps and stuff. It has more to do with technique than leg stregth, unless your upper body weighs so much now that you can't support it with your legs, in which case leg strength will defintely help.
