Chase Hawk was born in Austin, Texas and started riding at age seven when his dad bought him his first BMX bike. From there you can say the rest is history. Chase is best known for having a smooth, effortless style. He has competed in multiple X Games, and won a gold medal in front of his Austin home crowd in 2014. After his X Games win, the mayor of Austin dedicated his birthday annually as Chase Hawk Day in the City of Austin. When Chase isn’t riding at House Park, he likes to play with his dogs and spend time with his wife, Lauren.
