nyjah has a hard time winning soty because of his non-core status and spats + sport short combos, but if his nov 30 part is even better than the one he just dropped then he might actually win. honestly if he never gets a soty award it would be kinda sad, he deserves a lifetime achievement soty, only nyjah has been consistently progressing what is possible on massive rails even when it seems like were reaching the peak of whats possible

New thrasher gives away plenty.  New part seems like it will be gnarlier.   Heís already one-upped his ender

Yeah but so did an unnamed french kid like 8 years ago

Nothing Nyjah, or anyone, has done so far has got people talking or generated as much buzz as Tyshawn subway kickflip, sw ollie picnic table etc. Nyjah is dropping again, but so are Tyshawn and Louie. I still feel like when itís all said and done Tyshawn is doing tricks that literally only he could do and that sets him apart. I donít see anyone else blowing minds like TJ does.

Big pop is not SOTY to me. The shit some people are putting out way more diverse and as good or better than his footage. Certainly as gnarly and often more gnarly than his big pop skating.Well see cuz more parts are coming from more people are coming.

Let me break it down for you like this:

I think we can all agree the top 5 skaters in contention for SOTY 2022 are (in no order):

- LL
- TJ
- TFunk
- Nigel
- Jeff Carlyle

From this list, I see 2 quarter finals:

- Nigel vs TJ
- Jeff vs TFunk

LL is great, no doubt, but he doesnt have an ender ender.  His clips generate no discussion.

The final is going to be between SF Hesh (winner of TFunk vs Jeff) and Going where No Man has Gone Before (TJ vs Nigel).

Honestly, any 4 of these dudes winning is ok with me.

Nyjah isnt going to win SOTY. You're fooling yourself if you think he is.


 I meet up with her and I'm like wtf and she's got a baby stroller with her pushing it and she's pretty fat now

Looking at that cover again I think El Torro would be so much gnarlier. A lot of tricks from his last part were indistinguishable from shit he was doing 10 years ago. The backside 180 nosegrind revert on the 8 stair hubba in extreme slow-mo for example looks like it was ripped from an old SLS comercial. That being said he almost backside flipped El Torro 10 years ago and his new interview is fucked. Nyjah is a maniac, but Burnette gave soty to an undeniably-good but-still-nobody-cares kind of skater last year based on years of stockpiled footage. Would hate to see that become the norm. Also might argue that skateboarding might be cooler over all without Nyjah being the highest paid man in the industry. Certainly not my representative, if all there was to skating was Nyjah tricks and Nyjah fits I'd want nothing to do with any of this. Most people wouldn't. It'd be like parkour or some shit, reserved for Yugoslavian fuckbois and aspiring Tik Tok influencers.  All other candidates really do elevate skating into something higher and preserve it as an art form where as Nyjah turns it into boring stunt man shit and takes away almost as much as he puts back into the system, sometimes more. Lets gooooooo!

Here it is. The argument is to give it to Nyjah. I realize nobody here will agree, but I must make my case.

Nyjah Huston was foisted upon most of our consciousness as a toddler, essentially. He was despised for his little kid style, his contest efficiency, and his so-cal bro-ness. Swap a few of his friends out for "cooler" people, his clothes for "thrift store chic", etc. and you would have this messageboard fawning over his every move. The consistent hate for Nyjah would be impossible to explain to the greater sports world. Skateboarding has a one-in-a-lifetime talent, who has absolutely destroyed Southern California for 15 years, and the greater skateboard intelligentsia turns up their nose at his "gear" and the fact that he eschews indy tastes. Y'all are so silly. The part that he just dropped has more mind melters per capita than any part in a long time.

I do appreciate Nyjah for turning up the heat in general and keeping a fire lit under the ass of the other contenders. In all reality Thrasher should have given him one of these things a long time ago so he wouldn't have had to spend the past decade getting smoked. Probably one of the years that Cobra won, they should have just got it out of the way, so he could pile out and get fat the way Suciu has in 2022.

Surely the man is worthy of some sort of prize but that prize might have to come in the form of a 3rd Nike shoe, mansion in Malibu, some super exclusive NFTs and a never ending stream of So-Cal bimbos

Yea pop is his superpower but you act like his whole part is flatground. Dude is jumping over, down, and across shit, with a few rails and unreasonably tall ledges mixed in. Also i would say kickflipping a 15 foot gap with an active 3rd rail at the end and trains running can hang with any other gnarly trick happening this year. I like Louie and Nyjah is whatever but obviously gnar, but I didnít see either of them post a ďwillĒ in their story this year before trying a trick.

Nyjah will go down as one of the all time greats that never won SOTY. Dude is a legend and goes beyond what anyone can do, but heíll never get the streets hyped like the other contenders

I still feel like when itís all said and done Tyshawn is doing tricks that literally only he could do and that sets him apart. I donít see anyone else blowing minds like TJ does.

Agree, I feel like Tyshawn could pull 95% of Nyjah's tricks if he really wanted it, and 95% of Tyshawns skating, especially when he's dropping one of his blockbusters, is completely out of reach to Nyjah. That fact that TJ does the majority of what he does on the most broken NYC spots instead of prefabricated LA parking lots is a factor as well. Smoking himself mid-summer also doesn't help Nyjah's chances. Tyshawn is still out in these streets and ultimately I think The General will have the final say. He's no doubt in LA putting the final hurt in on some monumental spots, terrorizing Nyjah's turf and live streaming it on instagram.

Still. I get this uneasy feeling that Nyjah is about to beat us over the head with some psycho shit and I commend him for throwing skateboarding into the acceleration chamber, so many creative types seeing Nyjahs shit and being like damn, okay, I would never step to that so I'll have to push skating in some other way to get recognized. And we all benefit from that.

I don't even care for Nyjah but he front feebled over a freeway bridge  for shits and giggles.

Just not SOTY to me.

Nothing has gained as much buzz as T-Funk China Banks trick if we are going on that. I feel all the guys mentioned are doing tricks no one else can really do outside of maybe a select group of pros.

you never seen Blessed, Cherry, or any Supreme video for that matter. Dumbass take, telling me a switch bs 270 lipslide down a handrail makes TJ "not good" at rails.

Yeah, go watched Blessed.
