In 2006 at just 11 years old, Nyjah who started skating at 5 years old, was the youngest athlete to ever compete at X. It was always easy to spot the dreadlocked 'pint-sized powerhouse' he eats, sleeps and breathes skateboarding and it shows. At Goofy vs Regular in October 2006, he was named MVP for his Team Goofy over seasoned pros Greg Lutzka and Ronnie Creager. Nyjah has become a media star, with numerous video parts to his name, including a part in the 2007 Element video. Seemingly unfazed by the current pro skate events, Nyjah won the Tampa AM and AM Getting Paid contests. Nyjah's father Adeyemi, is a skateboarder himself and Nyjah looked up to him, as well as his older brothers, Jahmai, and Ahbi when he was getting his start. Nyjah also has a younger brother Kiade and a younger sister, Isha. He grew up living with the whole family and their parents, Adeyemi and Kelle Huston, outside the central California city of Davis. Nyjah now skates for the Element Green Team and has since collected major wins and some serious cash at Street League, among other top contests.
