Nick Ryan and his fellow athletes are leaping, spinning and flipping something that’s almost 100 years old, into an action sport of the future.
Nick is a member of the Extreme Pogo Semi-Pro team. He is also the CEO and co-founder of Xpogo, LLC–a firm that’s working to get extreme pogo sticking, or Xpogo, established and recognized as a worldwide competitive sport. Currently, Xpogo has its own competition, Pogopalooza, a series of breathtaking videos and a listing of top-ten world champions. In 2014, for the first time, Pogopalooza has become a multi-city international tour.
Nick talked about his background and experiences in developing Xpogo into both a sport and an inspiration.
