Alright all you east coasters, a whole lot skateboarding mayhem going down this weekend! Don’t be the mark that misses it all. It’s back to the banks and Red Bull Manny Mania comin’ in hot. This Saturday, skateboarders from around the world will converge under the Brooklyn Bridge for the 4th annual Back to the Banks Contest.
Open to all who want to participate, Back to the Banks is a contest unlike any other. There are no bleachers or timed runs. No clueless color men trying to rattle off unfamiliar trick names. No VIP areas with full catering. No. Back to the Banks is a no frills skate jam, bringing skateboarders together to raise money for the preservation and enjoyment of a legendary skate spot, the Brooklyn Banks. Word!
On August 17th at 2 PM thousands of skaters will mash together under the Manhattan side of the Brooklyn Bridge to skate alongside their friends and favorite pros (check www.redbullmannymania.com for list of who will be there). The list of competitors and judges are amazing! Good stuff going down.
