Photogallery: Chase Hawk / Oakley

When Chase Hawk asked if I’d be down to tag along and snap some photos while he and Joe Simon filmed for an Oakley project, I said “yes” faster than I could put on some Frogskins or Enduros.

So… off we went, early morning ’til night. I shadow’d Chase and Joe as the whole thing went down and casually snapped away. Watching both of these guys put in work was awesome and I think the video came out damn good, which is what I expected. Joe had the whole thing story-boarded and Chase repeated tricks on demand like a G.

With that said, click below to eyeball some behind the scenes photos of Chase’s Oakley video courtesy of yours truly.

“For everything bad, mescal; for everything good, the same.”

Mescal, for those who haven’t had the pleasure, is a smoky, delicious Mexican spirit primarily produced in Oaxaca from the agave plant.

“It’s a really rad plant,” Bayer says. “The way it’s cultivated is very poetic and somehow very tragic.”

In five minutes you can be an expert on Mescal. Get enlightened at Need Supply.

We got a hot tip on a big square pool out east, about half way to Vegas. Dak, myself, Gary Young and Calvin Cosovich packed up the car with brooms, buckets and bikes and headed out into the barren wasteland on the I-15 and followed our directions to this perfectly bone dry square pool with a little bit of over vert in the deep end and pretty amazing pocket airs. There were a bunch of old dirt bike tires everywhere and they ended up being featured very prominently in one of the action photos we shot with Dak in the pocket for one of his next Vans ads. You’ll see soon enough.

Later that day we ended up at some antique store that had a bunch of Nazi war memorabilia and I ended up with a stack of old surfer magazines from 1983 for two bucks each that are still keeping me entertained with the most kooked out ads and blonde mustaches you could ever imagine. Calvin was the filmer that day and he had a blonde mustache as well. That’s what made me think of all this. I can’t grow a mustache so I hang out with guys that can.
