  • ben

    such a great read, this dude is inspiring

  • Jamie

    inspiring stuff. now time to ride some crappy stuff here in Yeovil, England.

  • Kev

    Meh

  • Will Stroud

    Take notes kids. Chase D is a true professional and one of my favorite people.

  • C. Doyle

    I liked his explanation of why he doesn’t move to Cali and how he’s east coast for life.

  • Joshua

    Awesome. So good to come across someone so enthusiastic and completely sincere. Chase’s down to earth attitude is extremely inspiring. Way too rare.

    The necessity of having to do what’s best for one’s mind definitely rings true.

    Great insight. Thank you for this interview ! Both to you Nuno and Chase as well

  • Amazing interview, real as it gets. chase D is the man, defgrip rules.

  • Logan Eyre

    Chase Steezhart is a super rad dude, best style and attitude in BMX..

  • Eh

    I dont wanna say it,but alot of socal kids are a lil bitch about spots

    too spoiled! you show’m your spots and some of em complain way too much , thats why it never appeals to me a edit out of a socal school/cement park anymore ! shit is fabricated

    work your spots ! good read

  • I live in Easton, MD and it is the exact same way….. shitty, but it makes you appreciate riding more.

  • Lucas

    i think anyone from a small town can relate to this, but i would be in cali in a minute if the opportunity arose

  • AZ

    Chase D, is the man!

  • doug

    hell i can totally confide in what chase is saying. i hate riding made to ride stuff expect for a few skatepark ramps and i like scoping out my own spots cause i like to do something new and fresh instead of trying to one up some one at a more unknown spot

  • billy p

    Such a good interview.

  • dope. i can appreciate the hell out of a pro that’ll pedal to find shit instead of drive. real as it gets.

  • Jack

    eh down here in az its the same as everywhere too many good people doing drugs. plus there are our extremely HOTTT summers.

  • Matthew

    Out here in California, bmx is still illegal in sk8parks, its pretty whackkkk

  • Javee

    Real motherfucker right there… so good.

  • bry

    came back to look at this a second time, such a great interview

  • Chris B

    Good stuff Chase.

  • Great & insightful interview. Chase definitely seems like a genuine individual. Thanks for putting this together!

  • Dave L

    Personally, I don’t get all the hype around this kid. Seriously who does he think he’s fooling when he says that he didn’t realize that things were bad at fit? Stop reading into his bullshit kids, he runs 30″ wide bars and grabs at the crossbar. Gross. Sorry but this self rightious egomainac needs to go away.

  • Lucas

    ^ i think you need to go away, chase d can stay

  • James

    Lucas, you’re a dork.

  • Ethan

    I love this. All riders can relate to this. Making something out of basically nothing and making it awesome

  • chase

    lucas, i did say i knew things were bad at fit, i said “being so tight with robbie, i knew what was going on with him and the building” you could find that out by reading the interview..

  • Lucas

    what? i was agreeing with you dude

  • Every kid at my local park is jocking Chase D and Nathan Williams so hard I want to puke. The difference is they wouldn’t shred just any old spot and definitely not without their beanie and camera for maximum coolness.

  • matt

    that was a really good interview… its great to see a REAL interview with someone who actually has something to say thats worth reading. the mike hinkens interview on espn was a really good read too.

  • Richie

    Still riding the original fit dehart frame<3

  • chase

    thank you for all the positive comments, seriously means alot to me to read! i’m really sorry Lucas!! i confused your name with DAVE L, real sorry about that!

  • Collin B

    I loved this now my dans package needs to get to my house so i can ride.

  • chris

    DAVE L IS A FAG

  • alex

    chase dehart always in my heart and come to spain man

  • J. North

    I know the same struggles that Chase faces with riding crappy jersey street “spots”. I live only a half hour from the dude and he couldn’t have said it better.

  • Dave R

    Chase is my biggest inspiration when I ride. I am proud to say I ride the same spots he does. Hopefully I’ll see you in Princeton some day man!

  • will

    dave l is a queer. chase dehart is the best rider out there all his lines are sick and creative.

  • Como siempre, Chase!…..Escribiendo desde mi ordenador en Guadalajara,Jalisco.Mexico. En donde esperamos el momento en que Cult y toda su gente arrive esta ciudad que tiene mucho que ofrecerles!:Gente,Calle,Chicas,Diversion y todo lo que a un biker le puede gustar.
    Desde mi punto de vista, Chase Dehart: eres un exelente biker! siempre con estilo unico desde la primera vez que te vi en MOSH-S.F. Trip y que gracias a este vid he podido ver la forma en que has evolucionado en el BMX, hasta un dia revisando un vid en VHS, VHS!!!! es algo viejo para estos tiempos, descubri que sales ahi, el nombre de este es “Running of empty”, tal vez te acuerdes de el!. Estoy contento de poder escribir esto y que tu puedas leerlo porque todos los que conoces saben que soy tu seguidor y esto significa que soy tu SEGUIDOR no pretendo imitar todas tus movidas pero es que, desde que vi S.F trip me vi proyectado en ti, giros hacia el mismo lado gustos en comun que hicieron ver en ti un Dewey (ese soy yo) mas desarrollado en el BMX. Como siempre espero que el respeto llege desde aca, Mexico en donde se practica BMX y se admira CULT y la rapidez con la que todos ustedes han crecido, era obvio que lo lograrian!. Yo lo sabia.
    Bueno me despido sin antes decirte que GRACIAS por esa VIBRA que Transmiten en cada vid nuevo,entrevista y noticias, tienen que saber que mantiene el BMX vivo dia a dia!.
    Atentamente: Dewey Sincel! BMX RIDER 4EVER. 16 YEARS OLD. KEEP IT REAL! BUENA MIERDA!!!!
