Pogopalooza 10, the annual world championship of the sport of extreme pogo, took place this afternoon in Tompkins Square Park.
Per the xpogo website:
Xpogo athletes from across the world attempt to qualify for spots in the next-day’s finals in three disciplines: Big Air, Best Trick, and High Jump. The qualifiers are open, so on-site sign-ups are permitted. Throughout the day, athletes will be attempting to break all of the 13 recognized Xpogo World Records, in association with Guinness World Records.
And word was that Biff Hutchinson broke his own record for Highest Frontflip at 8'2" ....
The finals are tomorrow afternoon in Union Square. Any Pogopalooza reaction from those who were in the Park today? Someone described it as a "shitshow" — but not in a good way.
