Even he didn’t win the Street League in Munich, Nyjah Huston still ist the best contest skater in the world and also in the streets there are only few that reach his level. He might polarize but undeniable he is a league of his own so we were eager to ask him some questions at the session at Theresienwiese – although he only had seven minutes time. He’s just a wanted man.
I’m stoked that they’re doing another one here. After missing out on that one I was super bummed. It was the only Street League I ever missed out on and I was home, watching it on tv.
It’s awesome dude im super stoked to be a part of Nike, a dream come true you know? It’s got an amazing team, really cool dudes, awesome shoes, I couldn’t be more stoked. Yeah it’s cool to hang out with all these guys and it’s an honour to be on a team with P Rod, Luan and Shane and all of this dudes. I hang out with Shane a lot, Ishod and yeah all the guys are really cool.
I actually need to start working on my video part for Element first. Element’s supposed to come out with a video I think around may next year, so I need to start filming for that cause I’ve had a couple of injuries and stuff, so I’ve been keeping it mellow. But hopefully after that something with Nike.
"I’m not the no-comply urban skater type of guy, you know, but it’s sick to watch. I’ve respect for all types of skateboarding."
I’m about to start working on it really soon. Super stoked for it. I just want it to be my best shoe yet. Want it to be really good.
I mean im like kind of simple when it comes to shoes. I’m like, as long a they break in fast, last a long time and protect my feet good im stoked. That’s the main thing, cause I hate skating new shoes. So I’m always skating my shoes as long as possible.
Normally the filmers and photographers have a ton of spots or you see other people skate spots and then we try to find out where it is. Sometimes we look for spots or whatever but it’s hard nowadays, everything is found, escpecially around Southern California.

I wouldn’t say I can’t sleep. In L.A. there’s a ton of big rails and spots in general. When something new pops up it’s not too big of a rush. Whenever I have a trick in mind in general I wanna go get it done.
Normally if I wanna cruise I go skate in skateparks. But when I go streetskating there is always a camera.
Yes, I like watching all kinds of skating to be honest. It might not be my type of skating, I’m not the no-comply urban skater type of guy, you know, but it’s sick to watch. I’ve respect for all types of skateboarding: vert skating, pool skating, street skating – all that stuff is fucking awesome to watch.
I’m pumped on it, I’m super stoked. I’m looking forward for the time coming and hopefully be a part of it. I’ll be 25 at the time, I should keep myself healthy. I think it’s good for skateboarding. I’m always down for stuff like that to happen. It gonna help skateboarding to get bigger. I know a lot of people hate on contests like that or Street League or whatever but it’s bound to happen and I only see it as a good thing cause it’s creating opportunities for kids out there to fulfill their dreams and become a professional skateboarder. Parents see that and are like: "My kid’s skating, I should support it on that to get better."
I’m not gonna say it would be better for me. I think I could definitely progress more when I’m 25, but if it was right now I’d be stoked.
