According to Wikipedia (Yeah, great source of info, right?) Extreme POGO or X-POGO involves riding and performing tricks using pogo sticks. But hey! X-POGO is totally different from your usual pogo sticks that kids use for fun. The springs of these gravity-defying toys are bigger and could bounce you off the ground up to several meters high. Even up to 10 meters high with head down vertical to the floor. Whoa! Dangerously crazy!
