Red Bull Manny Mania at Krudco.

From its humble beginnings in the mind of skate pro Joey Brezinski to its growth as the premiere skateboard event in New York City, Red Bull Manny Mania has always been about connecting skaters through a mix of fun, relaxed contests with the highest level of technical trickery on two wheels.

In 2010, Red Bull Manny Mania will expand around the globe to an epic series that will take amateur winners from countries as far ranging as South Africa to Oman to Japan and throw them in the mix in the city that never sleeps.

U.S. skaters will battle it out in Copiague to earn their spot at the National Final taking place at Woodward East in July 16, 2010. The winner of that contest will represent the United States at the Red Bull Manny Mania World Final for amateurs in New York City on August 21, 2010

Red Bull Gazebo Getdown

Gazebo Getdown, a contest co-sponsored by Red Bull Skateboarding and Rochester's own Krudco skateshop. The park's gazebo area was transformed into a mini skate park for the event.

"The contest is considered a best trick-style jam," says Alan Presutti, general manager of Krudco. "Each obstacle was chosen one at time and the competitors were given 10 to 15 minutes to outdo all the others."

Serving as special guest judges were 5BoroNYC professional skateboard team members Dan Pensyl, Danny Falla, and Rochester native Justin Barnes. Additionally, pro skateboarder John Reeves from Bodega Skateboards shared MC duties with Presutti.
