What is Xpogo’s relationship with Guinness World Records?
Xpogo LLC is the official adjudicating body for extreme pogo world records, through a partnership with Guinness World Records. This means that extreme pogo world record attempts submitted through GWR come to Xpogo LLC for verification and we work in tandem with GWR to help approve record categories and define the regulations around record attempts.
How can I officially attempt a World Record?
Reach out to use through our Contact Page with the information about what record you’d like to try. If you would like us to come out and adjudicate the record in person, there will be a fee + travel expenses. If you would like to coordinate a time to travel to one of our events and attempt the record, that is something that we can help facilitate. Or, if you would like to try the record on your own, we can provide you with the regulations and requirements and can verify the record from footage and other materials that you provide.
I have a new record that I think you should try – what should I do?
Just reach out to use through our Contact Page and let us know your idea! If it’s a winner, we’ll add it to our roster.
