Nyjah Huston wins the 2017 SLS Nike SB Super Crown
Drive and determination
The 2017 SLS Nike SB Super Crown World Championship was heavy, but in the end, Nyjah Huston rallied to take the Super Crown win. After not winning a Super Crown World Championship since his 2014 season sweep, Nyjah dominated the 2017 SLS Nike SB World Tour and came back to take the 2017 SLS World Champion title. All this just after suffering a hard slam that put Huston in the hospital with a concussion. Clearly, Huston defines drive and determination.
In front of a high-energy crowd at USC's Galen Center and thousands of viewers tuned in via live stream on ETN, Nyjah Huston landed the highest-scoring trick of the entire season in a performance that netted his 20th SLS competition win and a $100,000 check.
Lil' Wayne is huge fan of skateboarding, and was on hand to watch the Super Crown in LA.

Skate legend in the crowd
Skateboarding legend Lance Mountain made the trip to watch Street League and hang with his Flip teammate Curren Caples.
"Last night was tight," said Leticia Bufoni following her second place performance.
Another legend on hand
Heath Kirchart may have retired from professional skateboarding, but following the debut of his "Epicly Laterd," it's nice to see Kirchart back in the fold and enjoying skateboarding. Here, Kirchart chats with his former Emerica team manager Justin Regan, while Woodward Camp owner Gary Ream looks on in front of the duo.
The final eight
The Men's Championship consisted of the top eight SLS Pros from the 2017 SLS season. After a long and hard-fought battle on the 2017 SLS Nike SB World Tour, the eight SLS Pros made it to the Super Crown World Championship by either getting a Golden Ticket from winning a stop or stacking up enough season points.
Nyjah Huston's title win was an uphill battle. Although he qualified into the Super Crown on the strength of two Golden Tickets plus the season's highest overall score at 280 qualifying points, a recent head trauma from a street skating injury almost prevented him from competing in Los Angeles.
It's not too often we get to see backside smiths up rails, but thanks to Torey Pudwill, that changed at Street League.
"Every win is a good feeling but this one feels like no other. It's been a rough few weeks and I'm just stoked to be here with all my homies in Los Angeles, said Nyjah Huston upon winning the SLS Super Crown World Championship. (Yes, he prevailed.)
Women's podium: Leticia Bufoni (second), Lacey Baker (first) and Mariah Duran (third).
