I dunno why, but with the background music, this reminds me of a Rocky movie. Except theres no boxing, there's pogoing....That, and the pogo video has more of a plot than any of the Rocky movies.

It's like... he's good at pogo sticking and all, and like he can do all kinds of stuff that I could never do... but it's just that like, it's hard to look cool bouncing up and down on a pogo stick eh? Er like, and the music like makes you want to take it seriously, but I just can't, cuz he's on a pogo stick.

At 1:30, he looses that little rubber thing at the bottom. And through most of the rest of the videos, he still doesn't have it.

the rubber thing is really unnessecary. it just makes it not sound clangy everytime you hop, and it doesnt make scratches. but...i think this is a very serious video. hahaha....xpogo is something i do myself, he is just awesome.

Man, he's good...

Heh, it's funny, both members of his filming crew are named "Joe", lol!

And I've had mild experience with pogo sticks, and it seems like it's easier to keep your balance with the rubber thing than without it. (and the clangyness nullification is nice, too) It always seems to fall off, though.

The stick with the white casing is so big it looks like a jackhammer!

Some of the things he did were really amazing. Takes lots of skill and practice, no doubt.

But next time, have a better choice in music!

Have something with some... heavy guitar. Or something.

it does take skill. and the pogo with the 'white casing' is such an awesome pogo. its the flybar. it can get like 5-6ft of air if you really work for it. and you can do some killer moves on it. good for stalls. and grabs. it can also be adjusted to your wieght. and it works on rubber bands.

Yeah, the Flybar is freaking sweet. I had to do an article on it for school a couple months back. Strange, that is comes up now.

Just because System of a Down does a song called Pogo, doesn't mean pogo is suddenly socially acceptable. I hope all you pogo dorks bounce too high one day and accidentally shove one up your <expletive deleted.>

If one day they add pogo and unicycling to x-games they better damn well add in drunken dwarf tossing too.

Personally, I'm waiting for high speed competition skipping. That, or team boxing with crowbars, each round 17 minutes.

Yeah at least he didn't have them, although I had heelies and they add a lot of weight on the bottom of your foot.
