Max Matissek: “My TRUE WIND project is about changing the paradigm of the windsurfing: embracing the fantasy and making it a reality. Doing freestyle moves at physically impossible places and capturing that moment. Something I realized throughout my windsurfing career is that the media loves to feature the utopian beaches with silky white sand and the usual palm trees to host our action. Don’t get me wrong, Cape Town and Maui are meccas of our sport and it just wouldn’t be the same without them. But, year after year, the only things that seem to change are the flashy chromatic range adorning the sails and occasionally the rider him or herself. So what I realized when traveling to such epic spots is that, while the action there is irreplaceable, there are still uncountable horizons that remain unexplored. How about bringing some “Streetstyle” like we see it in Snowboarding or even Skateboarding into our windsurfsphere? That`s why I created TRUE WIND.”
