Over his illustrious 15-year career, the three-time reigning world champion and 13-time X Games Gold medalist, Nyjah Huston, has swiftly progressed the sport of professional street skating since becoming the youngest-ever X Games competitor at age 11. A 2021 TIME100 Next honoree (the foremost honor from the distinguished publication, celebrating the next 100 most influential people in the world), Huston remains the winningest skateboarder in history.
With 19 X Games medals (13 Gold), six SLS Super Crowns and three ESPY Awards for “Best Male Action Sports Athlete,” the Nike SB athlete is the most-decorated professional skateboarder in history with a collection of titles and trophies that rival sport legends across all disciplines. Making good on ESPN Magazine’s 2013 prediction that he will be the sole athlete to change the course of his sport over the next decade, Huston is primed to dominate on the global stage this Summer—he stands head and shoulders above the next closest American skateboarder in World Ranking points.
The prodigy, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and born risk-taker with a combined social following of 8 million+, continues to show the world what living life, seemingly void of all fear, looks like. Huston originally hails from Davis, California and currently resides in Southern California.
