Jumping Really High | Vurtego Beginner Pogo Tutorials


Hey kids You want to get high? One of the questions everyone seems to be obsessed with is how high you can jump on a Vurtego pogo stick? For me that number is 11 feet, up and over a bar I’ve got the record for the highest jump, and today I’m going to teach you, how to get super high! Before you start working on elevating your pogo game. You need to be really familiar with moving around you should be able to jump at least 5 feet from one spot to another if you’re on a small, and closer to 10 feet between hops if you’re on a Medium or Large. You need to get your tweaks and tucks down and should definitely understand how to bail, because you’re probably going to need to at some point. Jumping high is a combination of several things that everyone will do this a little bit different however There are some tips I’ve found through the years to help out The first thing you need to do is understand the timing of the bounce when to push your weight down to compress the spring And when to jump back up to get to get more boost. Once you’ve got the timing down jumping high is just a matter of stringing several good well balanced bounces together It takes me five or six really good balances to start reaching scary height if you’re still new to bouncing that can be a really tough thing to do the first thing you need to learn is how to Time your bounce properly this is something that comes from lots of practice at least give you some pointers first off You’ll need to pump more air into the stick then you’re used to, or else you will just end up bottoming out Try to start with 5 or 10 more PSI than you generally use Get on the stick and start to jump as you progress you’ll end up adding more and more PSI Ideally at your highest bounce you should have about one inch of travel left on the shaft when you come into the ground you want To push down just a bit at first to get the spring moving then it’s a waiting game I like to keep my knees bent a little bit on the way down You need to get the air spring to compress as much as you can near the bottom right after the pogo stick slows down and reverses direction back upwards you’re going to jump and prepare for takeoff! The harder you jump, the higher you’ll go make sure the pogo stick is near the bottom of the stroke before you begin your jump or you’ll throw your timing off At the top of your jump you should pull up on the handlebars a little bit and bring the pogo stick into a tucked position To give yourself a good sense of balance in the air you’ll see a lot of people Taking one hand off the pogo stick while they’re in the air if you want to do that Go for it. Do what feels comfortable It is kind of like a monkey swinging its tail And it’s helped you to keep balance if you start to get a little wonky and need to make a small adjustment Repeat this process a few times in a row you’ll be able to start building up some height When you get to the point where you are bottoming out the stroke just put more air into the stick If you start getting off balance and are still pretty low, you can simply bail out and land on your feet Remember to try landing on your toes to help absorb the impact if you’re moving forward consider doing a rollout If you’re really building up some crazy height and feel yourself losing control think about landing on your pogo stick to absorb the bounce Instead of bouncing back up into the air out of control you can kill the bounce and save yourself some damage The higher you start to bounce the more important it is to learn how to kill your bounce You can kill your bounce by simply absorbing the bounce into your knees and body as you come down It’s a fairly complex skill that takes time to learn You should start small you should get a feel for it pretty quickly I can usually stop myself from any height below 10 feet in 3 bounces or less One thing you can try is to get a running start by jumping forward a few times Once you build up some speed and forward momentum You can stack that forward momentum into a very high jump by jumping straight up instead of forward This is really useful when you’re trying to get your highest jump possible. It’s also helpful for getting used to jumping up onto things well That’s about all I have to say about getting super high… on a pogo stick that is.

    After many 1.5 – 2.5 mile treks I can say just bouncing for a while helps your big air control a lot.
    I'll be looking into an oil change and more frequent lubrication soon, I think that's the biggest thing holding me back currently.

    Hi vurtegopogo I just wanted to say that if I could grt anything in the world it would be this. It would be soooo cool since.I could add V4 pogo sticking to my amazing feats list. I can ride a unicycle, a RipStik, and ride wheelies on a bike. This would be awesome to add, but these are soooo expensive, so I can't get one anytime soon….😥😫😰😨😫😟💔

    Solve my query please !
    I have been practising on 50 psi but the stick doesn’t seem to go down even after putting a lot of energy . I also did a complete cleaning of it from inside , still the result is the same .
    Pls give me some tips .
    Is it all about just applying a lot of energy by bending your knees ? Or what
    Vurtego fun from INDIA 🇮🇳
    THANK YOU
