Skateboarding, inline skates, BMX, halfpipe, etc... If you like something you'll find the time.

I've have broken my ankles 5 times, (none on a pogo stick) and all I could think about was one miss step (miss pogo) and....well it wouldn't be good!

Gravity is a b!t(h !!!

Very cool vid though. I like the way it was shot and edited.

Thanks,


.

I was Fatty McFat-fat as a kid. The pogo stick would go down, but not spring back up. Very traumatic! I used hula hoops as a belt to hold my pants up. Mom fed us lard sandwiches with pork fat jelly. We was dirt po'.
