Manny Mania South Africa is gearing up for its third qualifying round at the Wave House Skate Park in Durban tomorrow. Manual skating hopefuls will head through to the tournament in the hopes of making it to the finals in Johannesburg on June 26. The winner of the national final will be flown to New York City on an all-expenses paid trip to represent South Africa at the Red Bull Manny Mania World Final for amateurs on August 20, 2011. The winner of this event will get a chance to step into the big leagues by competing in the invite-only Red Bull Manny Mania Pro Event, on Sunday, August 21 in New York City.
To recap: skaters will need to register for the event on the day, or pre-register by sending an email to the event organisers. Registration opens at 10am, with the competition kicking off at 12pm sharp. Judges Puddy Zwenis, Adrian Day and Brendan Body will rate each skater on a score from 1-100, based on their overall impression of landed manual tricks. The top four scores will compete in a final 10-minute heat to choose the top three.
