We’ve written down 100 random questions and assorted topics, all of which are unbeknownst to our victims. We will be asking people to pick 20 random numbers from 1-100 and then supplying them with those questions/topics to answer. Who knows what might come up!?!?!

Up next is Austin’s own style master, Chase Hawk.

Yesterday – breakfast lunch and dinner?

Breakfast – coffee and a banana from a coffee place by my house
Lunch – a burger form Hopdoddy
Dinner – thai food from Sway

Where in the world do you want to visit most that you haven’t been to?

I’ve always wanted to go to Tahiti. Its been this dream of mine to just stay on one of those overwater bungalows.

Top 5 all time favorite movies.

In no particular order:
1. Casino
2. Shawshank Redemption
3. Reservoir Dogs
4. The Fighter
5. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

What is the word you overuse the most?

Honestly, either “fuck” or “Lucy”. The first one needs no explanation, but “Lucy” because she’s always getting in to trouble. I love her, but she’s a handful.

What is your worst bad habit?

I have two. I doubt myself a lot. I need to be more confident in myself in riding and all other aspects of life. My other bad habit is I get anxious on oversea flights. I think it’s the anticipation of sitting in a chair uncomfortably for a long period of time and not being able to do anything about it freaks me out.

What advice would you give to a younger you?

This is a hard one because I’ve made a lot of bad decisions in the past, but I feel like I wouldn’t change any of them because I’ve grown a lot from the outcomes. I am who I am today because of my past. If I had to pick I would say be smart with your money. It was easy once I started receiving money when I was younger to blow it on everything as unnecessary as it was. Kids are lucky if they have parents that help manage their money when they are younger, as much as it sucks at the time it will pay off in the long run.

What are you saving up for?

I’m saving up for a car and a wedding. A car first though. Just kidding. But both of those things I am looking forward to this year.

Any hidden talents? What are they?

I would say playing the drums, but I feel like everyone knows that. Other than that I would say I’m a one trick pony.

Do you have any superstitions?

I believe in karma and being a good person to yourself and others. Good things will happen to those who deserve it and vice versa.

What trait do you think people need more of in general?

I think people need to learn to let go and relax. I see so many people get so consumed in the future and don’t even take time to acknowledge what’s happening to them in the present. People just need to know it’s okay to slow down and just enjoy what is in front of them. Life doesn’t have to be a competition. Stress is always a big factor. I don’t do well with stress so I tend to do anything I can to avoid it. Whether that’s the right thing or not I’m not sure, but I know it helps.

Give us 2 truths and a lie.

I can do a backflip
I hate rollercoasters
I’m related to Tony Hawk

What is a weird, strange or funny story about something that happened to you?

I was riding street at the Santa Ana Civic Center Banks and I was with Dakota, Robbie, Joe Rich and a few other people. Long story short, cops end up coming and we decided that we were going to try and ride our bikes and get away from them. They pulled out taser guns and we obviously stopped. Five cops ended up coming and most of them had your egotistical cop personality and tried to lecture us the whole time. I just kept my mouth shut and didn’t say one word the whole time. The cops came back and gave every person there a ticket except for me. I couldn’t believe it. Joe had to even fly back to California for a court date. I don’t know why, but I guess keeping my mouth and opinions to myself paid off in that situation. I feel bad for everyone else though haha.

Do you have any pets?

I have two dogs now, an English bulldog named Lucy and a Cavachon named Oscar. I’m about to have another dog, Lauren’s lab retriever named Raileey.

When was the last time you stepped in dog shit?

Yesterday when I was raking and cleaning Laurens parent’s yard. Lots of it as well.

What was the last book you read?

I started reading The New Good Life by John Robbins, but I haven’t finished it yet. To be honest, it’s hard for me stay focus reading books. I look forward to reading more though.

What was the last time you were star struck?

It would probably be at the X-Games in Germany. I had the chance to hang out and chill with my two of my skateboarding idols – Raven Tershy and Grant Taylor. I look up to these dudes a lot. I get a lot of inspiration from the way they skate. The way they look when they ride bowls and parks is how I want to look when I ride them on my bike. They are stylish riders that take skateboarding to another level. Anyone that knows who they are wouldn’t disagree. I watch and keep up with skateboarding a lot so I was definitely stoked on getting to chill and hang out with them in Germany.

Where were you when 9/11 happened?

I was at my dad’s house. I was sleeping and remembering him yelling at me to wake up and come downstairs. We were watching the TV when the second plane hit, it was definitely a crazy experience. I was home schooled at the time so I pretty much watched the news all day.

How many songs do you have in your iTunes library?

69,420

If you were in an elevator and Michael Jordan walked in, what would you do?

I would probably play it cool. I would assume he would probably not even acknowledge me in an elevator so I would probably try and not stare and make it awkward. I wouldn’t do anything, but I would think it was cool and tell everyone I knew about it later.

Toilet paper. When the roll is getting low, are you guilty of using just enough not to replace it, or do you do the right thing?

Always do the right thing… and if you’re staying at my house you better be buying that Angel Soft or we are having a problem.

Behind The Cover: Dig 98 / Trails Issue

DIG 98 COVER by Rob Dolecki:

-This is Clint Reynolds’ second DIG cover; first was for Issue 82: an over-under air with Ryan Corrigan at the La Perla bowl in San Juan, Puerto Rico, which I also shot.

-This was shot a week after Texas Toast. Due to other commitments, I only had a week to stay in Austin and opted to skip out on Toast so I could spend the whole time with Clint, Matty, and Nutter, getting their split interview together. Because the Texas summer heat had just ended and all three dudes were working on the Toast jumps in the weeks prior, and thanks to a monsoon flooding everything out less than a week before I got on a plane to Austin, the first jumps at East Side were just starting to get resurfaced when I arrived. The first two days were spent working on Main Line, then the next day riding them in. A storm came through that night and soaked the trails pretty well. That resulted in another full day of working on the trails, and the last two days produced some heated sessions of the local crew re-riding them in, as well as a few other bad-asses like Chase Hawk, Baz Keep and Lima. The hip Clint is riding in the photo saw extended trains the last day. It conveniently poured like crazy the following day as I got on the plane back home, which incapacitated the trails in the following weeks. Luck of the draw.

-This happens to be the second DIG cover at East Side trails, both being trails-themed issues. The first one (Issue 68) was of longtime nomadic Austin resident Tony Cardona, who recently got married and had his first child.

-This photo was shot with my favorite megapixel masher, a Canon 1DX. The brightest light source available on the market was used, and it didn’t cost anything for it.

-The process for this DIG cover photo choice was pretty off-the-cuff, as they usually are. Will (Smyth, Editor-In-Chief) loved the photo, made a mock cover with it, and  everyone who saw it loved how the cover looked.

DIG 98 is out now. Follow Rob Dolecki on Instagram.
