AllPogo’s Winter Warm-Up Pogo Jam, a weekend sesh in sunny Bradenton, Florida. More information and final dates coming later on, but we just wanted to start building hype. Come hit classic Bradenton spots such as the Vendetta Handrail, win prizes, eat pizza, and maybe even catch a glimpse of the infamous Tone Staubs, if we can convince him to get down here.
This year at PogoPalooza 2022, AllPogo presented the very first “Lifetime Achievement Award,” honoring two pogoers who we believe have made the biggest impact on the progression of the sport of pogo up until today. Fred Grzybowski and Daniel Mahoney received the award, as well as a free Signature Series pogo stick hand built by Earl Pote. Fred Received an original GG modified into an SS due to his longevity in the sport, and Dan received a Green accented SS, paying homage to an old school website and forum he made back in the mid 2000’s called “Green Pogo.”
Fred has been involved with the sport of pogo ever since the very beginning (we’re talkin’ late 90’s) and is responsible for creating a lot of the basics of big air pogo sticking. In fact, Fred was the very first pogoer to move from jumping full time on a spring stick to a big air stick when the Flybar 1200 was released in 2004. -> (Read More) ->
The Motostik is a historic pogo stick that emerged in 2004, the same year as the Flybar 1200, and was used primarily by many riders in the mid 2000’s. The Flybar 1200 was the very first “Big Air” pogo stick that was released into the market, and the Motostik was almost like a hybrid between a Tech stick and a Big Air stick. A lot of pogoers then were obviously still used to jumping on spring pogo sticks, so the Motostik was a great transition stick into Big Air. We at AllPogo happened to snag an interview with Marc Matson, the mastermind behind the Motostik – a pogo stick that helped propel not only some of the greats of pogo forward, but the sport itself.
What is your history with motocross as far as racing, freestyle, etc.
I started racing motocross around 1980… and I still am. I never was really good, but I always brought two pretty girls with me, so I ended up hanging out with a couple brand-name moto guys. -> (Read More) ->
