Meet the Team
Ryan O’Malley (Athlete)
“The Patron Saint of Pogo,” Ryan O’Malley was a founding member of the legendary “Team Hyper Pogo,” and is personally responsible for the world’s first “NO POGO” sign (Bradenton, Florida)! A viral-sensation for some BRUTAL early falls, Ryan has since become a Master Of Consistency And Technicality (losing four teeth will cause Anyone to rework their pogo-style). The current world record holder for “most consecutive no-handed backflips,” O’Malley is a veteran, who brings fifteen years of good karma to every gig.
Russ Kaus (Athlete)
“Doctor Tobogen” AKA “Russell the Muscle” AKA “Kaus the Bawse” is half madman, half machine. Seriously: tell him to do a bonkers trick over a sketchy gap, and he won’t think twice (even when he probably should)! Hailing from Washington D.C., Russ is known for his huge “Mandys,” spectacular frontflips, and no-fear attitude. A Mastodon on a pogo stick. #TOOLSHEAD
