With air-powered sticks that launch them up to ten feet in the air, a small community of athletes is boldly pogoing where no one has pogone before.
The advent of the pneumatic sticks in 2004 revolutionized the practice of pogo, pushing it out of the driveway and toward an X Games-esque competitive free-for-all fueled by online one-upsmanship.
The first Pogopalooza was held 8 years ago in the backyard of a 14-year-old enthusiast. The several dozen gathered in Southern California this year hope the sport will soar to new heights.
