This Sunday, a variety of emotions were found in the air at the Prudential Center. Anything from anxiety to pure excitement due to that anxiety, as Street League’s monumental finals had Nyjah suited up again crowd favorite Luan Oliveira.
While Nyjah has always been known to be on the more competitive side of skateboarding (due to a unwanted “Michael Jackson-like” upbringing), he’s taken jabs of his own at the judges of SLS with their grading system. Nevertheless, Nyjah’s questionability against the judges couldn’t hold up as Luan found himself succeeding with his uncanny ability to maintain his cool and remain consistent with all of his runs. More over, Nyjah couldn’t place blame on the course or judges this time around, as he was the one having a hard time under the hot lights and booing crowd at New Jersey. Has the crowd/pressure gotten to him or was this all just a means of some simple sabotage mission? Better yet, we think something’s weighing on his mind…
The human brain isn’t meant to multitask. Once you find yourself juggling too many thoughts, the process of functioning becomes increasingly difficult and, if we had to guess, this is exactly what happened at the Prudential Center with Nyjah Huston. While it has come to light on the SLAP message boards, one piece of evidence from our end gives us the impression that he very well could be leaving longtime sponsor, DC Shoes. Could the pressure of that undoubtably stressful change be weighing on his mind more than we could imagine?
During our collective effort at getting Agenda Sneak Peeks (yes, we swear, they’re coming), we noticed that we weren’t introduced to any new colorways of Nyjah’s N2 at the DC Booth. In fact, when we took a glance to look around, the N2, whether future or existing colorways, were nowhere to be found. Could it be that the stress of leaving his longtime sponsor could’ve resulted in him failing at Street League in his very unlikely fashion? While the overall consensus lies in Nyjah joining the incredibly stacked Nike SB team, it’s still yet to be determined where he’ll end up, but we can confirm that it isn’t likely that he’ll stay on DC before the start of 2016.
If you had to guess, where will Nyjah end up? Or better yet, what brand suits him best?
