Nyjah Huston’s Kapernick Nike Ad

by The Editors on September 6, 2018

Yes, Nike goes straight to the emotions with their new Dream Crazy commercial narrated by Colin Kapernick, but they kick off the ad with Nyjah Huston. It’s now cliche when the Swoosh jumps in and opportunistically commodifies politics (they’re just shoes), but it will offer up more eyes on skateboarding than anything this side of the Tokyo Olympics.


Nyjah Huston Profiled In LA Weekly

by The Editors on March 8, 2018

With Nyjah Huston’s ‘Til Death seared into our retinas we were reminded of how strange his trip really has been thanks to a profile by Lily Moayeri in LA Weekly.

In an interview, Huston is prepared for personal questions. His responses are tailored and efficient, his tone practiced and final, not inviting further questioning into such subjects as his father, his partying, his haters. He gives a nervous sniff at the end of each of his responses.

The profile covers all that and more, but we’ll let you read it yerself.

Nyjah Huston continued his seemingly unstoppable winning ways at the SLS Nike SB Pro Barcelona over the weekend. Yeah, Nyjah.

“I always tend to put myself in the most challenging situations when it comes to winning Street League finals. This was one of the gnarliest, most nerve racking situations I’ve ever been in, and was especially tough since it came down to the last try after I missed a few times,” Huston said. “I’m really stoked it worked out in the end – great way to start off the season”

Nyjah Champ Image-2

We all figured this would happen and it did. Nyjah Huston took the 2012 Street League Championships over Chris Cole and Chaz Ortiz and rolled away with $200,000 more. Guess the only one surprised about the win was Nyjah.

“I definitely was not expecting to win, because when you expect to win, you lose” said 2012 Street League Champion Nyjah Huston. “All of the guy skilled it so hard today. You have to land your tricks on the spot. The pressure is on. But there is no better competition ground than Street League, we always bring our best for SLS and Rob Dyrdek.”
