The Kansas City course seemed to have taken a turn for the tech, but Nyjah rolled with the switch up. And true to his mantra, Rise & Shine, Nyjah shined brighter than all expectations. His scores reflected accordingly; averaging a 9.2 in the Impact Section, something that few SLS pros have achieved once, let alone average on the regs. Is Nyjah unstoppable? With three-for-three first place wins at Street League this year, is it too late to ask if he can sweep? We're putting our money on it, but we're also a little biased. The bottom line is that Nyjah is skateboarding at a level that has never been seen before.
Here's Nyjah's mind-blowing victory lap; an ollie out to backside nosebluntslide on the double kink.
