Elijah's World - Elijah Berle interview
Elijah Berle's World
By Eric Wall
Sponsors: Foundation, Pig, Osiris, Pacific Drive, Thunder.
Now Residing: Hollywood, CA
How old were you when you first started skateboarding?
I’m not sure I think 5 or 6 I'm guessing. haha.
Did you ever play like baseball or basketball growing when you were younger like the rest of kids or just straight to skateboarding?
Nah Nah Nah. Just skated. I tried to play baseball but wasn't into it.
I know you were home schooled for a bit or had online classes but I’m not sure how that turned out? How far did you make it in school?
I'm still home schooling. Trying to get that shit done.
Aren’t you neighbors with Bob Dylan’s family or something crazy like that in LA?
Yeah I used to live in Santa Monica and one of his many houses was down the street. If I heard he was in town I would go sit in front of his house and hope to catch a glimpse of him.
You’re little brother is super good at skating to right? But he likes to skate vert? What’s the story behind that?
Yeah my little brother rips! He skate like pools and stuff its gnarly.
How old is he?
How old were you when you first started getting boards from Foundation?
I have lost track. I think you sent me my first box when I was 12 or 13. That was the coolest thing ever.
Did you send in a sponsor me video?
Yeah. It was funny I went to Sugar Sports office with a tape and they denied me and then I went to this mini ramp where I met you and you asked me for a tape and I sent you the same one that sugar denied. haha

What advice would you give kids your age that want to get sponsored?
Don't be cocky, just go out and have fun.
Now you are fully on Foundation, Pig wheels, and Osiris, what’s been the biggest change for you?
Uhhh... Not too much has changed. Still just having fun.
Are you working on filming for a new Foundation video or anything?
Yeah I have been working my ass off for it, I'm stoked to have a part. I want it to be a part that I can look back on and be proud of.
Who do you usually skate with on a daily basis?
Basically all of my friends live in the same apartment so that’s rad. We skate everyday and its so fun living with all your best skate buds. I also go up north to Duffel’s house a lot, he is one of my favorite people to skate with.
When you’re not skateboarding what can we expect you to be doing?
I usually just hang out with the misses when I'm not skating.
What’s the best trip you’ve been on so far and why?
The best trip I have ever been on was the first time I went and stayed at Corey’s with my friend Logan. That was a blast. Basically we just skated around with a point and shoot and had a blast.
