How many times have you seen signs reading «No Skateboarding on Sidewalk» or simply «No Skateboards»? Skaters got a bad rap. Few people thought skateboarding would become big business.
This Dude is the Best Ripper in the World
Nyjah Huston is one of America’s best-known skaters. His net worth is $6 million. That money is a result of Nyjah winning just about every tournament he has entered since 2004. Nyjah was nine in 2004. Yes, nine.
The Nyjah Dynasty
The Street League Skateboarding World Championship, featuring the top 25 skaters in the world, began in 2010. Nyjah won the championship in 2010, 2012, 2014, 2017, 2018, and 2019. He finished second in 2011, 2013, 2015, and 2016. Domination.
Is Nyjah Into Cars?
A little bit. He’s got a Mercedes CLS63, worth 85 grand (it’s white with red mirrors) and an all-black $50,000 Chevy Tahoe for cruising in town. His favorite? An all-white Audi R8, valued at 170 grand. It’s a stick shift with 20-inch wheels.
Living in SoCal
Nyjah recently (and finally) bought a house. He said the reason he didn’t buy one earlier is because of his love of cars. He’s living in San Juan Capistrano in a $2.7 million home. Nyjah is the highest-paid skater in the world, making $800,000 a year. He’s got the mortgage covered.
Nyjah Knows There’s More to the World Than Skating
He was born in California but grew up in Puerto Rico, where getting clean water can be a problem. As a result, he’s founded Let It Flow, a charity bringing wells and sanitation to people needing clean water.
Nyjah is no poseur.
