Red Bull’s ‘Manny Mania’ Returns

Red Bull's 'Manny Mania' Returns

After nearly 10 years, Red Bull Manny Mania is returning to showcase the most technical manual skateboarding in the world. The 2022 installment kicks off with an August 4th live show that will revisit the legacy of the event and reveal entries from the first-ever digital contest. The two-wheeled showdown continues with Amateur contests in New York City on September 17th and San Francisco at a date later to be announced.

Tune-in Live August 4th 7pm EST / 4pm PST for the Red Bull Manny Mania Kickoff Show

Watch the Entries Starting August 4th and Vote for the People’s Choice Winner

Born from the mind of Joey Brezinski in 2007, Red Bull Manny Mania seeks to award 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 attempt to link their best combinations together.

“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.”

Airing live, for free and on demand on Red Bull Skateboarding’s YouTube channel on August 4th at 7pm EST / 4pm PST, the kickoff show will feature Vanessa Torres, Torey Pudwill, Andrew Cannon and 4-time Red Bull Manny Mania champ, Joey Brezinski. Tune-in as these legends celebrate the contest that has provided opportunity to skaters around the world. Along with sharing top moments and stories from past events, the crew will also premiere the video entries from the digital contest.

The digital contest features 18 of the top manny technicians who were challenged to film four manual combos. Beginning August 4th on, fans are invited to watch the video entries and vote for their 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. The video entries will be judged based on trick difficulty, creativity, style and spot selection.
