Bryan Herman

Bryan Herman Biography

Skip to the rants (64)

Trailer park trash that blew in from the high desert (Victorville, California, precisely), Bryan Herman is a dedicated young ripster who doesn't care much about anything--except riding his skateboard. Super tech yet somehow super gnarly, Herman brings down the biggies with the best of 'em in a style reminiscent of a young Jamie Thomas--but 10 times better.

Bryan was born April 10, 1986 and, like many, started out life the simple way: riding BMX bikes and playing baseball. Thanks to the early influence of his older brother, Wayne, however, Herman wisely picked up a skateboard at the ripe old age of 11--leaving those vastly inferior traditional and "extreme" sports in the dust. Although Herms claims he grew up pretty much alone in his formative years (giving him plenty of time to work on tricks), sessions with fellow wheat shredders Matt Allen and David Odle were not uncommon.

After unintentionally starting a riot at school with a product toss, Herman got expelled, then just decided to drop out completely to enjoy the touring life of the sponsored skater. A former Emerica Mansion guest, you can currently find Hermdizzle hanging out at his house in Victorville.

Herman's personality is kind of manic--he's really up or really down. He can be fully hyperactive one minute and quite quiet and pensive the next. Suddenly cropping his long locks way short or shaving his eyebrows off on a whim, Herman is one youngster who is definitely not afraid to switch up his looks on a dime.

Despite all of the trappings of the skateboarding industry, Bryan really does just skate for fun and lets everything happen naturally--an approach to skating that many other kids would do well to learn. Herm's "career" highlights thus far include flying around the world for free on skate tours, getting a cover on The Skateboard Mag, a cover and interview in Thrasher and filming his bangin' parts for Emerica's This is Skateboarding and Stay Gold.

Herman spends off-board moments playing video games, listening to music, eating food and just hanging out with his friends. His future goals include exHermanating everything in his path. Oh, and just staying happy.

Bryan rides for Emerica, Baker, Thunder, Spitfire, Altamont, Shake Junt and Pharmacy.
