Video Of The Day: Extreme Pogo In New York City

Move over mountain bikes and skateboards, there’s a new extreme sport in town: Xpogo, a sport where athletes ride and perform tricks on pogo sticks. These aren’t your average pogo sticks; they’ve been toughened up and modified so they can reach heights up to 10 feet. Watch the video above to get a quick overview of the sport from some of its star athletes, as well as some great shots of New York landmarks like the Brooklyn Bridge and Washington Square Park. I can’t tell whether I should be impressed, or scared for these guys. They must take on a lot of trauma in their legs.
