Elijah Berle Talks Dreaming of SOTY in new Chris Nieratko Interview

The Elijah Berle media blitz continues with his interview with Chris Nieratko that dropped via Monster Children today. Berle is set to release a video part captured by Greg Hunt in support of his new Vans shoe later this year. Clearly, he has his sights on SOTY.

After this year, I just want to keep it going. It would be really cool to get SOTY. Not putting that out there… One of my biggest accomplishments—and one I’ve always set out for—was getting a shoe. Now that’s happened, if I were to imagine anything being as big as a pro shoe, it would be SOTY. If I can achieve both of those in one year, I wouldn’t even know what to say. I couldn’t ask for anything more than that. I’d probably look back at this year as one of the better years of my life. It’d be cool to have that, or at least to be able to say I tried as hard as I could to do that. This year I’m going to work my ass off, skate as much as I can, and try to travel. Just get as much stuff done as I can, and we’ll see what comes from it next year.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out in December when Thrasher unveils 2019’s Skater of the Year. Head over to Monster Children to read the entire piece.
