This summer a group of 12 amateur skateboarders from around the Unites States will have a chance to compete in the Red Bull Manny Mania national champion. With 12 qualifiers taking place from across the country, hundreds of skaters will have their chance to roll their way from hometown hero to the national spotlight.

The series will culminate in two marquee events, the Red Bull Manny Mania World Final and the Red Bull Manny Mania Pro, taking place August 20-21 in New York City. The invite-only pro event has brought some of the best skaters to New York City, including past winners Brezinski, Ronnie Creager and Eli Reed as well as other top skaters such as Brandon Biebel, Mike Mo Capaldi and Eric Koston among many others.
