Watch Awesome Pogo Stick World Record Breaker

You need heavy machinery to make this happen

The crossbar that a football must pass over in order to be a field goal or an extra point is exactly 10-feet high. Until recently, both Biff Hutchison and Dalton Smith (both American pogo jumpers) cleared that with an additional six inches to grab hold of the record for highest pogo jump at Pogopalooza 2015.

Not happy with sharing the title with Smith – who we can only imagine Hutchison considers his greatest rival in the world, the Bird to his Magic in the world of pogoing – Hutchison saw a shot at not just being the lone jumper standing atop Pogo Mountain (as problematic as being on top of a mountain on a pogo stick sounds), but absolutely crushing the old record. 

And he did just that in pretty epic fashion. 

Jumping off a backhoe, building up air with several smaller jumps, Hutchison, as you’ll see in this video, gets just enough air to clear the makeshift goalpost and apparently claim sole possession of the highest jump in pogoing history.
