Pogopalooza, the annual world championship of the sport of extreme pogo was held today in Union Square in Manhattan. Extreme Pogo or Xpogo is an action sport which involves riding and performing tricks on extreme pogo sticks, defined as such by their durability and potential for height. Extreme pogo is a relatively new extreme sport and is increasingly becoming popular. This is the first time that New York City hosted this annual event. Pogo companies were on-site selling all types of sticks from classic to extreme. There was a Free Jump area where the public can ride any stick or learn how to pogo.
