Xpogo – Extreme Pogo Stick Riding… or would that be bouncing?
I have to admit, as a now-retired rock-climbing adrenaline-junkie, extreme pogo-sticking is something that never crossed my mind. But why not? Looks pretty cool! Xpogo is a group of athletic individuals who show off their extreme pogo stick riding skills and tricks.
Here is a video of their extreme pogo-sticking in New York. Their website features videos of their forays around the world in a multitude of countries including Brazil, Hong Kong, Texas (yeah, I suppose they could be considered a different country), Beijing and plenty of other places and videos all on their website, Xpogo. Let’s see if they are added into the XGames….

I can see how it looks fun, but I can’t see how hammering the stick like that can feel like fun…
Seems even more dangerous for a man’s jewels than a bike does.
