  • 10 NEW SKATERS. MODULAR BLOCKS. THEIR BEST MANUALS. YOU DECIDE WHO WINS. A thing of beauty, an art form, the utmost tech of the tech, the manual is much more than a trick—it's a full-on discipline. Requiring a supernatural amount of patience, grace, and precision, manuals can literally break down even the best skateboarders on the planet. But when done right, few things in skateboarding are more impressive or gratifying than a solid, perfectly balanced manual. And that's exactly why we started 2UP last year, The Berrics' first-ever manual contest. Once again, we built a handful of simple modular blocks and invited 10 of the world's most balanced skaters to get creative and film their best tricks on two wheels. No repeats from last year. You decide the winner. Easy as that. 


  • Willow powers through crusty German spots in the dead of winter for this full part to celebrate his colorway of the etnies Marana. 

  • Rarely do they come easy, and no matter how many times you commit or try, they're always going to be unpredictable. You might get it first go, you might get it after 1,000 tries, but one thing's for sure - nothing feels better than rolling away from a perfectly balanced manual. This is that very process behind Tom Asta's 2UP. From deciding how to set up the blocks to choosing the tricks, see and hear how it all went down.

  • You've seen @guymariano's Insta, you know the mind blowing tricks he's putting out these days. Well, chalk up another one for the NBD record books...
