Monster Energy’s Nyjah Huston emerged at the top of an elite field of street skaters in front of a capacity crowd and thousands of viewers tuned in via live stream on ETN at the Street League Skateboarding Nike SB World Tour Munich at the Olympic Park stadium in Munich, Germany. With another Street League milestone is in the books, the first official 2017 Street League Skateboarding Nike SB World Tour stop in Munich, Germany, showcased some of the best skateboarding in SLS history and an epic finals stacked with Nine Club scores.
Battling an early summer heat wave and competitors from Australia, Brazil, Canada, Japan, and the United States, the 22-year-old from San Juan Capistrano brought home first place and his second Golden Ticket to the 2017 SLS Nike SB Super Crown World Championship in September.
Huston came to Munich as a favorite fresh off his win at the SLS season opener in Barcelona in May. But it wasn’t going to be easy: With all competing pros bringing their A-game, the recipe for staying on top in Munich today consisted of building a strong foundation with high-scoring runs, supplemented by standout moves in the Best Trick segment. A near flawless run and big transfers saw Huston qualifying in second place in the intense prelims – among the “heaviest” in SLS history according to commentator Geoff Rowley – that sidelined some of the strongest Street League competitors.
