There's no way to exaggerate Nyjah Huston's place in street skateboarding: He's the most important athlete in the discipline. The 21-year-old wins most contests he enters, including 7 of the past 8 XG Street comps he's attended. He's medaled in his past 10 XG Street starts; no one else approaches that success. He also lays down heavy video parts, most recently Thrasher Magazine's "OMFG." He was the youngest athlete in XG history when he first appeared in 2006, at 11 yrs., 8 mos, and he's still the second-youngest of all time. Now he's one of the most dominant athletes at X Games. With 8 XG victories, he's tied with Shaun White for most gold by age 21.
- XG Austin 2016 will be his 14th XG appearance: 11 medals (8 gold
- 7 Street, 1 Real Street). Medals in 10 straight Street comps that he's entered (missed Munich 2013 with injury). Gold in 7 of the past 9 XG Street comps.
- 2nd place overall in 2015 Street League series. Swept the Street League events in 2014.
- youngest athlete in XG history (2006, 11 yrs., 8 mos.)
- One of the most popular skateboarders in the world: 1.7M Instagram followers; 2.2M Facebook Likes (as of 5/26/16).
