Going for Gold

The 17-year-old Nyjah Huston has been competing professionally since he was 11, and took the gold in the street competition last year (and silver in 2010 and 2009) among dozens of other national and international appearances. He has endorsement deals with Element skateboards, DC shoes and Monster energy drinks, to name a few.
