JANOSKI AND WILLIAMS CONFIRMED FOR RED BULL MANNY MANIA
JUDGES KOSTON AND BERRA WILL HAVE THEIR WORK CUT OUT FOR THEM!
Santa Monica, CA – Aug 8th , 2008 – With Stefan Janoski and Stevie Williams amongst the latest skateboarders to confirm their attendance at this year's Red Bull Manny Mania, this contest is set to be historic even before the first trick is landed. The likes of these core skateboarders have not been seen in the same room let alone the same contest ever.
Last year saw the rise of a new kind of skateboard contest, with top pros coming out in force to prove who is skateboarding's technical wizard. This year's field truly represents the core of skateboarding and for most of these pros Manny Mania is the only contest they'll do all year.
With New York City home to so many skateboarders and so many more in town for a weekend that sees New York the center of the skateboard world with the Back To The Banks contest on the day before. The event is expected to draw a huge crowd of die-hard skate fans and pros alike, all coming to witness some of the most technical skateboarding ever.
