Nyjah Huston founded his own skateboard deck company named I&I in 2009, which only existed for two years. So, he rejoined Element and released a single video production titled Rise & Shine in 2011. It was available on iTunes for purchase. Since then, Huston has released a number of videos and taken part in various contests winning several dollars in cash prizes and medals.
Nyjah, the record youngest X-Games competitor since the age of 11, has won back-to-back Street League championships, including the Supercrown and inaugural crown. Nyjah won a gold medal for the first time at the 2013 X Games Street League contest in Barcelona, Spain.
Along with the medal, reportedly, he earned more career cash prizes than any other skaters in pro-skateboarding history. However, the amount is not released to the public to date. Normally, the winner of SLS events gets an amount ranging from $150K to $250K. So, Huston also might have received similar prize money.
Besides, Nyjah Huston has won a total of seven gold medals at various Summer X games and won various skateboarding tournaments to date. And each of his victories has won him a big amount of prize money, aiding in his rising net worth.
Income From His Newest Capsule Collection
As Nyjah Huston prepares for Tokyo Olympics 2021, he has released a really cool capsule collection for the brand ‘Privé Revaux Eyewear.’ Privé Revaux is a brand co-founded by Jamie Foxx, Ashley Benson, and Hailee Steinfeld.

While talking to the People magazine, Nyjah Huston remembered seeing the brand ‘Privé Revaux’ for the first time, worn by Jamie Foxx, and hearing that Foxx was one of its founders. So, he met the owner, David Schottenstein, and partnered on the Prive Revaux’s collection. Some of the Nyjah Huston collections by Privé Revaux Eyewear, along with their prices, are as below.
|Laguna, Sunglasses & Blue Light||$44.95|
|Kinetic, HoldTight Sunglasses||$49.95|
|Hollywood, Sunglasses & Blue Light||$44.95|
The award-winning skater Nyjah Huston usually does not skate with glasses on because there are high chances of the glasses falling off and breaking. Keeping that in mind, Huston designed a special frame with HoldTight technology. The tech uses magnets into the arms of the glasses, which allows the frame to snap and lock closed, preventing the glass from falling off. Huston is the first person to use the technology in the Prive Revaux collection.
So, Nyjah is earning a substantial sum of money from the selling of his eyewear collections by Prive Revaux.
Nyjah Huston Sponsors
A household name to every fan of action sport, Nyjah Huston’s fame and fortune has seen no shortage in sponsorships ever since he started skateboarding. His first sponsor was Element Skateboards at the age of Seven. Some years later, the DC Shoes added up to the list for his shoe sponsor.

As of January 2021, Nyjah Huston’s sponsors are Nike SB, Social CBD, Doritos, Diamond Supply Co., Ricta Wheels, Monster Energy, Mountain Dew, Adapt Technology, and flatbread Neapolitan pizzeria. However, he is no longer working with his first sponsor, Element Skateboards.
Furthermore, as soon as Nyjah Huston got on the Nike team, he got his own signature Nike shoe. The new Nike SB ‘Nyjah’ shoe, which costs $95, is flexible and stands up to relentless use. Its inner sleeve keeps your foot locked in and connected while it’s skateboarding-specific. Moreover, the free sole of the Nike SB Nyjah Free 2 shoe expands and contrasts with every push making it comfortable for the person who uses it.
