It would take a massive choke for Nyjah NOT to emerge as the champ here. He’s dominated every stop and takes a nice point lead into Jersey on the 28th. Seems like it’s almost too easy for him.

P-Rod’s switch skills, Sheckler and his go big or go home philosophy, Torey Pudwill’s innovation, and so on. It’s been fun to watch this summer.
