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

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.

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

Jah should pull a wildcard Elijah Berle fit change and film a full VX slappy/curb part to end the year. Full villain arc. Anyways, does anyone have any unorthodox dishes they are planning for Thanksgiving?

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.

this is some seriously delusional level dick riding

I don't even care for Nyjah but he front feebled over a freeway bridge  for shits and giggles. Tyshawn is sick but he not as good at ledges manuals and rails than a shitton of pro skaters and he's not even the best gap / stair skater.His claim to fame is doing the flat ground tricks he does well super big..nothing wrong with that. 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.

Fuck his credibly accused rapist mandala tattoed ass from here to forever. He can frontside bluntside the  moon and it wont make a difference. He's a piece of shit, period. Even if you decide to ignore accusations of rape from multiple credible sources, that 8 tricks on multiple rails bullshit doesn't mean a goddamn thing to anyone who isn't already riding his jockstrap.

  Never said he couldn't do rails. People are doing enormous rail and tech shit on rails nowadays.  He's not even in the conversation of best rail skaters.

Can you site sources for multiple rape claims? What makes them credible, because as far as I can tell, they are strictly rumor with no individual accusing anything.
