A thing of beauty, an art form, the utmost tech of the tech, the manual is much more than a trick—it’s a full-on discipline. Requiring a supernatural amount of patience, grace, and precision, manuals can literally break down even the best skateboarders on the planet. But when done right, few things in skateboarding are more impressive or gratifying than a solid, perfectly balanced manual.
And that’s exactly why we started 2UP, The Berrics’ first-ever manual contest. We built a handful of simple modular blocks and invited 10 of the world’s most balanced skaters to get creative and film their best tricks on two wheels. You decide the winner. Easy as that.
