Red Bull Manny Mania landed at Baltimore’s Charm City Skatepark on Sunday, May 20, looking for the area’s best technical skaters. Red Bull athlete Luis Tolentino was on hand as a guest judge, and the event was hosted by Charm City owner and Global Skateboarding Network founder Jason Chapman.
“It was really awesome seeing the kids kill the features that Red Bull put in the park,” said Tolentino at the end of the day’s competition.
DJ Remedy was on site to entertain the crowd as thirty-six riders competed for the chance to skate in the Red Bull Manny Mania national finals at Camp Woodward in July. The top eight riders advanced to the final but it was Dan Corrigan who really impressed the judges and took home the title of Red Bull Manny Mania Baltimore Champion.
Some standouts from the day included Tyrese Jefferson with a big pop shove-it to flat and Kyle Flegel’s lipside big spin.
