Street League Foz do Iguaçu 2013: X GAMES THROWBACK

Flashback to April 20, 2013. X Games has gone global and after winter stops in Aspen and Tignes, we dipped down to Brazil for X Games Foz do Iguaçu 2013. On day three, Nyjah Huston was already doing Nyjah Huston stuff. He won qualifiers, then then beat out Sean Malto and Torey Pudwill to reclaim the gold in the finals.

“Going into the first [Street League stop] I always want to win it so bad, and I feel like I’ve got so much pressure on myself,” Huston said. “So winning the first one is always the best thing for me.”

Final score notwithstanding, Huston did not dominate the battle: Chaz Ortiz led after the flow section of the competition, thanks to a run that included a crooked grind to nollie flip out, putting him ahead of local favorite Luan Oliveira, Pudwill, and Huston. Oliveira owned the next portion of the contest, rocking the yellow and green jersey of Brazil’s national soccer team to the delight of his home crowd and winning the control section with the highest scoring single run of the day, thanks to a nollie hardflip noseslide to shove-it out. At 9.7 it was the second highest-scoring trick in Street League history and put him in the overall lead ahead of Ortiz and Huston.

If you were there, this was one Street League comp to remember, and in case you missed it, enjoy this trip down memory lane!
