Next Up Foundation Pro Guest Nyjah Huston

On January 24th, Nyjah Huston paid a visit to Next Up headquarters, drawing a huge crowd of Next Up participants and local skaters from Anaheim. It goes without saying that Nyjah’s skills on a skateboard are impressive, but to see him perform up close and personal is another story! He tore up our little skate park, landing a majority of his tricks first try and getting everyone hyped. Nyjah was a also powerful mentor to the kids, taking time for photos, high fives, and autographs, answering questions, and giving advice.
