Posted July 14th, 2010

Lee J. Berman was born in Longmeadow, Massachusetts and got into skating after seeing his friends older brothers sliding 2x4s up the street. There was no turning back after he witnessed that wizardry.

Goofy o regular?
Regular but Goofy kickflips

Where has this piece of wood with wheels taking you over the years?
I have been skateboarding for so long and started so young.. Just about everything I do or have done can be traced back to skateboarding. New Countries, Jobs, Schools, Friends, Food, it all comes back to one thing.

What’s been the craziest thing you’ve seen while out on a skate mission?
Everything man, but a bum fully getting his dick sucked on the bleachers at China Town Courts in Boston takes the cake. At the same place I also saw a bum fall off the back of the bleachers straight to his head and the 15 other bums around him didn’t even turn their heads.

Who you rolling around with these days?
All the dudes holding down Boston.

Who else do you ride for?
Creation, Dekline shoes, Orchard Skateshop, Magical Go-Go

How do you survive / get by day to day outside of skating? (Job? School?)
I rent apartments in Boston during the summer.

Top bands to listen to while rolling
Dinosaur jr and Kool Kieth

Top 5 skate spots or cities
Barcelona, Boston, Tel Aviv, Miami, San Francisco

If you knew today was your last day to live, how would you spend it?
Spend it with my love’d ones, and look forward to skating with Phil Shao, Keenan Milton, Anthony Labosco, Pepe Martinez, Mike Cardona and the rest of our fallen soldiers the next day!!

What plans you got for the future?
Keep on Living

What advice would you give to a kid who was just starting out skateboarding?
Get on and never look back.

What do you think of this gnarly oil spill going down?
So insane!!! This just shows you oil is not really a depleting natural resource.

You on any special diet to stay healthy or do you just charge whatever whenever?
Vegetarian Vagetarian and Fish by the sea.

What’s your favorite trick?
Front Shov dawg

Quality or quantity?
Is that even a question??!! Quality!!
