Red Bull’s Manny Mania Durban Qualifiers Deliver.

Three local skaters heading to Red Bull Manny Mania in JHB

This last Saturday, three valid, zero31-approved Durban citizens qualified for the SA final of the largest international manual skateboarding competition for amateurs.

Dlamini Dlamini of La Lucia came out on top at today’s qualifier for Red Bull Manny Mania 2011 at Wave House Skate Park in Umhlanga, Durban.  He will be heading to Johannesburg on June 26, 2011 to compete against other participants selected from four qualifying events across South Africa as part of the largest international event for amateur manual skaters.

“I’m so stoked to be going to Johannesburg for the final. The level of skating in the final was really high it could have gone to anyone. I’d love to get the trip to New York, but for now I’m focused on the final next week.”

Second and third place went to Khule Ngubane and George Van Blerk, respectively, among over 35 competitors at the event.

The winner of the national final on June 26 will be flown to New York City on an all expenses paid trip to represent South Africa at the Red Bull Manny Mania World Final for amateurs on August 20, 2011. The winner of this event will get a chance to step into the big leagues by competing in the invite-only Red Bull Manny Mania Pro Event, on Sunday, August 21 in New York City.

That’s a big high-5 from me..

On this note, it’s fitting to remember that the world’s skating community lost a brother yesterday. Ryan Dunn of “Jackass” fame, and Bam Margera’s best mate, lost his life in a car accident. He was only 34, swak.
