Nyjah is bringing it to another level
In part two of his Free Lunch interview, Huston discusses his dreads, Katy Perry, and Chris Cole.
Nyjah Huston sat down with Ride Channel for their "Free Lunch" series. In part two of his interview, Huston talks about a wide range of topics, from kickflip backside lipsliding at Hollywood High to his love of Ironman (that's the reason why he drives an Audi R8). Most importantly, Huston explains why he cut off the dreadlocks that were his signature look for so many years.
Front blunt down 18 stairs? Yes, Nyjah Huston just did that. Apparently when Thrasher magazine editor Jake Phelps comes to visit you better have some mind-blowing tricks ready to go. And if Nyjah's trick isn't impressive enough, Huston landed the trick on the second try.
Huston skates from A to B and then back to A.
Pro skateboarder Nyjah Huston is a polarizing figure in the skate community. Some love him. Some hate him. Few are in the middle. But watching Huston skate this line for Thrasher's "Firing Line" makes it impossible to throw shade at his skills on a skateboard.
