Brad McClain continued his bowl busting assault on Scandinavian skateparks this summer with a gnarly barrage of tricks at Malmo Sweden’s Ultrabowl IV competition yesterday. For his relentless efforts he was awarded the top spot on the podium and pocketed plenty of Euros to take back home with him. Malmo’s Fernando Bramsmark gave Brad a good run for his money as did Kevin Kowalski in the six-man final heat of the afternoon, but the Nor Cal native’s combined lines and heavy hitting stunts left a huge impression and a stack of points on the judges score sheets. The victory was clearly his.
1. Brad McClain – 2200
2. Fernando Bramsmark – 2000
3. Kevin Kowalski – 1800
4. Cody Lockwood – 1500
5. Josh Borden – 1000
6. Oskar Hallberg – 700
7. Greyson Fletcher – 500
8. Mason Merlino – 300

Until yesterday nobody had ever won Red Bull Manny Mania two years in a row, and Joey Brezinski’s back-to-back win was his 4th victory in the last six years. The reigning manny champion entered a final stacked with talent that included former Red Bull Manny Mania Winner Ronnie Creager, Brandon Biebel and 2011’s Red Bull Manny Mania World Amateur Champion Sewa Kroetkov from The Netherlands.
The newly rebuilt Coleman skatepark under the Manhattan Bridge was filled with more than 1,000 skateboarders and fans that gathered to watch this unique pro manual contest. The high-level of technical skateboarding displayed by the pros on the custom built course, included past winners like Eli Reed, Ronnie Creager and pros that were new to the contest, like Torey Pudwill.
“Everyone in the semis was skating so good at first I wasn’t sure I would make the cut,” said Joey Brezinski. “It feels great that everything came together and I won.”
