Role models are an inspiration for what they do. It’s always a dream to meet one and we at Janwaar Castle believe, Nothing Impossible!

So when we first connected with Nyjah Huston, we did hope for the day when he would skate amid our midst. And after months of working with Nyjah and his team, that day is finally here!

On 24 November, Nyjah will set the ramps on fire as he takes to the board for the first time in India. The 21-year-old from Davis, California, is a six-time X-games gold medallist, a five-time Street League Skateboarding champion, was adjudged the Best Male Action Sports Athlete at the ESPY Awards a couple of times and has revolutionized the sport, pushing the boundaries each time he hops onto the board.

One of the top street skateboarders in the world, Nyjah will share his experiences with our champions and give an insight into how the sport has evolved. But Nyjah’s visit isn’t just about skateboarding. Through his water charity, Let it Flow, Nyjah and his team will look at ways to solve the water problem at Janwaar, as they have in many parts of the world.

The villagers had a tough time during the last drought in Janwaar, and there were also a few deaths during this period. We have set up a solar system with the help of Nyjah’s team, which guarantees water throughout the year. They will now repair hand pumps and wells, in addition to installing filters to ensure a clean water supply for Janwaar.

We at Janwaar Castle believing in sharing and want to take this opportunity to invite you to meet Nyjah. Here’s how you can be a part of all the action:
