Nyjah Huston was born on February 6, 1995, in San Francisco, California to Willie and Christine Huston who are both professional skateboarders making him one of the few pro skateboarders in history to come from a family of fellow pros. Growing up he lived in Fremont, California before moving back to San Francisco’s South Beach area where many other skaters live such as Chris Cole, Steve Caballero, and others. Nyjah’s sister Carissa is also a professional skateboarder who was sponsored by Adidas in 2008 after beating hundreds of other girls at the Adidas Supergirl Finals held at Woodward West in California.

Nyjah Huston growing and becoming a world professional skateboarder

Nyjah Huston grew up in the hills of San Lorenzo, CA which is known as one of the most gang-ridden neighborhoods in all of California. After seeing a young Lil Wayne rap performance on TV around 2005, Nyjah Huston was inspired to take his skating career to the next level and subsequently spent years honing his craft at school and on the streets. He also frequented local Skateparks where he would train with other professional skaters such as Omar Salazar who helped him prepare for various contests around California. As for how he ended up becoming a pro-skater, that’s an easy question: In the summer of 2008, Pro Skater [and current CEO of Activision] Tony Hawk’s son, Riley Hawk, attended a local contest in Nyjah’s neighborhood and was blown away by what he saw. The next day, Riley called his dad and told him that he’d found the next big thing. And thus Nyjah Huston became a professional skateboarder who now travels around the world while also running his own mobile app company, Hustle Castle, and acting as a guest celebrity endorser for several high-profile brands such as Red Bull and DC Shoes.
