Photo of the day: Chase Hawk


Chase Hawk hanging out where the air is much thinner at the Mabel Davis skatepark in Austin, Texas.

I don't think anyone can argue another awesome photo of Chase Hawk. Even if he's not doing some big trick, his style and height speaks for itself.

"An 11ft deep concrete bowl isn't something you mess with. Unless you hang out at 8ft above coping like Chase Hawk that is, then your set-up airs are another man's dream blast. If Big Daddy were here, he'd ask "Are we breathing the same air?" In which case the Chase's obvious answer would be, "No, it's much thinner up here." -Justin Kosman
