who’s your favorite skateboarder? NYJAH!

"Never think that you're not good enough, or that you're too young for something. As long as you're working hard for what you love doing, you'll have a good chance of getting somewhere with it." -Nyjah Huston

“Never think that you’re not good enough, or that you’re too young for something. As long as you’re working hard for what you love doing, you’ll have a good chance of getting somewhere with it.”
-Nyjah Huston

Nyjah Imani Huston (born November 30, 1994) is an American professional street skateboarder and in August 2012 was the overall champion at the Street League Skateboarding (SLS) competition series. As of May 19, 2013, Huston has won more prize money than any other skateboarder in history.

Nyjah Huston has undeniably become one of the most remarkable and phenomenal street skaters to watch in a short period of time. After learning to skate at the young age of 5, Nyjah continues to eat, live, and breathe skateboarding to this day. He has had all eyes on him since he burst onto the skate scene at the young age of 9 and won the legendary Tampa Am event at only 10 years old. By the age of 11, Nyjah became the youngest ever X Games competitor. In 2010, he was crowned as the inaugural Street League Skateboard Champion, and in 2011 he won his first X Games gold medal. Nyjah’s consistency and distinguished skills make him the one to beat as he relentlessly skates his way to the top of world class skateboard competitions.
Nyjah’s real passion for skateboarding can be found in the roots of street skating. He continues to blow minds with his innovative bag of tricks performed on some of the most dangerous stairs and rails in cities throughout the world. At the young age of 17, he has already filmed five full- length video parts. His most recent video, Rise & Shine, produced by his long-time sponsor Element Skateboards, was released on Itunes on 11/11/11, and reminded all skate fans that Nyjah is a true street skater at heart. His determination and amazing talent on a skateboard truly shine and show what is possible when he puts mind over matter. Nyjah’s career as a professional street skater is expected to evolve and progress, and leaves us asking, “What will he do next?” There is no doubt that he will continue to the push the limits of skateboarding and become one of the greatest legends in action sports.
