Catering to “those who dare,” Republic of Gamers has collaborated with professional skateboarder Nyjah Huston to bring his personal aesthetic and unmatched hustle to a special edition of the ASUS ROG Strix Laptop. Huston has gained notoriety and respect in the scene thanks to his aggressive approach to mastering new tricks while street skating, and the intense discipline he brings to every session. No matter how challenging a new skateboarding trick is, Huston will commit to a spot and keep trying until he lands it — an unrelenting mentality he shares with ROG.

A look behind the scenes of Huston’s multifaceted approach to training shows the grit and passion he puts into his art form. His serious regime includes a mix of filming and skating, which is supplemented by lifting weights, biking and hiking. “My work ethic has always been very dedicated to getting the job done, practicing hard and leaving it all out there,” says Huston.

His work ethic is evident in the video above as he attempts to land a trick on a flight of stairs, no matter how much blood or sweat it takes him. As Huston climbs back up the stairs to give the trick another try, he remarks that, “failure is the biggest part of skateboarding. Whatever you’re doing in life, it teaches you to push through.” It is this shared commitment to pushing the limits, no matter what it takes, that make him a fitting collaborator for ROG, who prides itself in catering to “those who dare.”

It helps, too, that he’s a fan of the brand. To balance out his rigorous training, Huston takes a break by gaming at home on his ASUS laptop. His levels of concentration stay high throughout the day and prove that no matter what activity he’s up to, he dares to succeed.

Check out Huston in action in the video above. To learn more about his special edition of the ASUS ROG Strix Laptop, head to the brand’s website.
