The contest series kicked off in May in Venice Beach, CA where palm trees and ocean breezes provided the backdrop for the Brezinski, Chico Brenes and Daniel Castillo to take the top three and earn an automatic invite to the battle in the Big Apple.
Across the country, skateboarding’s future got their chance to join in the action, with six amateur stops hitting up skate hotbeds like Tampa, Denver and Austin and giving locals the spotlight to do their best tricks in front of pro judges such as Brezinski and Chris Roberts.
The “Show us Your Manny contest gives anyone with a camera and a skateboard the chance to upload their video to You Tube in hopes of getting picked for a prize pack including goodies from Cliché, Stereo and Adio. There is still a chance to win, if you have the skills on the wheels (and your buddy can manage to hold the camera steady).
