Here’s a little photo recap from our trip to New York City and the Redbull Manny Mania contest featuring Joey Brezinski, Brandon Biebel, Torey Pudwill, Zered Bassett, Kenny Anderson, Lizard King and more.
Hello New York.
The newly redesigned LES park got incorporated into the Manny Mania course. First up on Saturday was the am contest.
Dan Corrigan was so gnar, he broke his truck on a manual and decided to eat it.
Jeremias Delgado from Finland, nose manual 360 shove-it to manual.
Brandon Bandula was getting creative with the course. Manual up to nosegrind grab out.
I’m sure there was some flip in, flip out shit with this Joao Dantas nosemanual.
Congrats to Joao Dantas on winning the Am contest. He killed it.
Lizard and all the Supra boys were in town. Kickflip into bank.
The kids love them some Lizard King.
On the way out for the first day, had to check out Luis Tolentino’s bad ass whip.
We hit these ledges after the contest and Skateboarder’s Aaron Smith thought it would be cool to kickflip the ledge. Nice one.
Ran into Freddy Gall and Joel Meinholtz out in the streets.
Fred and Al Davis. Good dudes to skate with.
Ran into Zered flying around at the Chelsea Pier park.
Then over to Max Fish. Kyle Leeper and Stefan Janoski with his new hair color.
