Nyjah Huston and his crew down at India's biggest and only rural skatepark? seems a bit over whelming for some in the country! But it's true!
A while back the Janwaar Castle community reached out to Nyjah looking for a skate session with him. While in talks about how this skate session (more that 7,ooo miles across) would actually work out, the local community informed them about their upcoming plans to build a new solar water well for the village. This little piece of information made a huge difference. This made way for "Let it Flow" to be a part of this too! The conversation went on a little longer and the LiF crew found out that there were multiple wells around the skatepark and village, that were broken down and needed repair. These guys pulled together funding for the solar powered well and the repair of the broken down ones and made it to Panna, MP!

Janwaar is a village in Panna, Madhya Pradesh that faces a ton of draught problems. Last year in 2015 the rainfall was more that 50% below normal levels. There is very little availability of fresh water reservoirs and development is pretty slow in most parts too. 
Let It Flow is a non-profit organization founded by Kelle and Nyjah Huston.  Inspired by their own experience of living without clean, running water, they now provide water solutions for people that are living without access to clean water.
That's not all! Janwaar Castle had their 1st skateboard challenge half way through this month, and the winner of the challenge had a special skate session lined up with Nyjah! 
This November also marked the first ever visit from Nyjah to India. 
The 21-year-old from Davis, California, was the overall champion at the Street League Skateboarding (SLS)competition series in 2010, 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2016. As of May 19, 2013, Huston has won more prize money than any other skateboarder in history. He is also a six-time X-games gold medallist. Nyjah's rewards & accomplishments is a never ending list, that grows longer every time you finish reading a sentence. 
One of the top street skateboarders in the world, shredds local terrain in India! 

Quick steps out here in India. Vid @_justinmulford
