Ashrita proudly calls this event “aqua pogo”. 1986 On April Fool’s Day , Good Morning America predicted this new anti-gravity sport would soon sweep the nation after Furman broke the distance record in a YMCA pool on air. Fifteen years later, it still hasn’t caught on but that hasn’t stopped Ashrita from coming back to break his own record, both in time and distance. Despite this particular record being set in an Olympic-sized pool at the Y he also holds an aqua pogo record which took place on in the dangerous waters of the Amazon River with nothing more than a snorkel.
