The first-ever pro manual contest will carry on throughout summer, hitting select cities all over the U.S. The format will have jam sessions on some custom-built manny pads, and a list of skateboardings top pros to battle it out on two wheels. Led by manual tech-wizard Joey Brezinski, the contest series kicks off Saturday, May 19th in Venice Beach, CA, for a pro showdown at the birthplace of modern skating.

Practice starts 11a
1st Jam sessions starts High noon
Final starts 2:30pm

From there, Manny Mania will tour the country with six amateur stops, where locals will get a chance to throw down their best trick combos and take away prizes. Red Bull pros Joey Brezinski, Zered Bassett, Danny Supa, and Benny Fairfax will be at various stops to judge, hang out and crown the best local. The series will wrap up in NYC where the pros will take a final crack at walking away with the Manny title and a good chunk of prize money.

“This is such a huge part of skateboarding right now,” says Brezinski. “We spend so much of our time just searching for great manny spots to skate, the timing just felt right to build a dream manny pad and session it with the best guys, so we ended up with Manny Mania.”

Both pro events will be available via live webcast from 411.
