After nearly 10 years, Red Bull Manny Mania is back to showcase the most technical manual skateboarding in the world with its first ever digital competition format. The 2022 installment kicked off with an August 4th live show that revisited the legacy of the event and revealed entries from this year’s invite-only competition.
Born from the mind of Joey Brezinski in 2007, Red Bull Manny Mania brings together the highest level of technical skating on two wheels. Based on the simple balancing trick of the manual, the contest awards skill and creativity as skaters try to link their best combinations together.
Catch up on the livestream on Red Bull Skateboarding's YouTube channel and then head over to the 2022 contest page to watch the entries.
The kickoff show featured Vanessa Torres, Torey Pudwill, Andrew Cannon and 4-time Red Bull Manny Mania champ, Joey Brezinski. These legends celebrated a contest that has provided opportunity to skaters around the world. Along with sharing top moments and stories from past events, the crew also premiered the video entries from the digital contest.
“I was always more influenced by manual skating and looking around, there were no contests that catered to that,” says Brezinski. “Red Bull Manny Mania fills the void by putting a spotlight on this style of skating while showing just how creative skateboarding can get.”
The digital contest features 18 of the top manny technicians who were challenged to film four manual combos. Starting August 4th on, you are invited to watch the video entries and vote for your favorite until August 15th. A $25,000 prize purse is up for grabs as the overall winners and People’s Choice Award will be announced August 16th.
