2012 STREET LEAGUE CHAMPION NYJAH HUSTON


For the 4th and final stop of the tour, the Prudential Center in New Jersey played host to the most exciting StreetLeague stop the series has ever seen. Hungry to win and with the next levelskating to show it, Huston cemented his spot on top early on even with Cole, Paul Rodriguez and Ortiz close behind. In the end it came down to Huston and Rodriguez as more than 10,000 fans watched these two pros battle it out with some of the most impressive and technical tricks ever seen.

“I definitely was not expecting to win, because when you expect to win, you lose” said 2012 Street League Champion Nyjah Huston. “All of the guys killed it so hard today. You have to land your tricks on the spot. The pressure is on. But there is no better competition ground than Street League, we always bring our best for SLS and Rob Dyrdek.”
This win marks Huston’s first Championship title since the event has become a winner-take-all format and his third stop win this year, bringing Huston’s 2012 earnings to $500,000 in cash alone, including a brand new Chevy Sonic and the Nixon Championship watch and ring.

“Both Nyjah and Chris are amazingly talented skaters and we are lucky to have them as part of our DC team. We say the same thing every year when it comes to Street League, but the level of skating keeps growing and changing, and is really unbelievable. Congrats to both Nyjah and Chris on their wins, and to all of our DC skaters that competed. DC couldn’t be more proud of our athletes and to be involved with Street League,” said DC VP of Marketing, Jeff Taylor.

DC has been a title sponsor of Street League Skateboarding since 2010 and is excited to continue our partnership with this groundbreaking tour in upcoming years.
