Nyjah Huston Takes First Place at Los Angeles Street League Skateboarding

July 29,2014

Congrats to Nyjah Huston who won Stop 2 of the 2014 SLS World Tour this past weekend in Los Angeles. In a group of 22 invited professional skaters, two-time Street League champion Huston bounced back from a hard fall in Saturday’s practice to defy expectations and top the competition once again.

 

With consistent skating throughout the day, Huston hovered in 3rd place behind Torey Pudwill and Shane O’Neill as the contest entered the Control Section, the final portion of the event. The course hosted some of this year’s strongest skating, as contenders took turns at the top of the leaderboard. Huston ran into hard luck in his 3rd attempt of the Control Section, breaking a kingpin and being forced to borrow O’Neill’s skateboard for his 4th attempt. Proving that real pros can ride anything, Huston scored a 9.2 with a stylish bigspin flip. 

 

"This win felt like no other!” said Nyjah Huston. “All my friends, family, and sponsors in the arena kept me so psyched! They motivated me to overcome the injury and even the broken board. I couldn't be more stoked! Special thanks to Shane O'Neill for the borrowed board."

 

Although Huston already holds a ‘golden ticket’ to the Super Crown World Championship on August 24th in New Jersey with first place finishes at the Pro Open and Chicago’s Stop One.
