Max Matissek is our creative austrian Freestyle hero from Lake Neusiedl. He's known for his style, his crazy projects like the TRUE WIND Project and his legendary parties during the Freestyle Worldcup at Podersdorf of course. He loves when things happen off the beaten track, his best PWA result, a 4th place at the Indoor Worldcup in Warsaw just underlines that. Besides windsurfing Max is a skilled artist and painter.

Depends on the toppings!

If you could choose a superpower, what would it be?

Flying of course, but freezing time could also be a lot of fun!

How do you setup your Skate?

I put the foot straps as close together as possible to get maximum grip. The mast foot pretty much as much as possible in the back. Fins from 17-20 cm.

Which moves are you working on?

Shifty 720 and a few other jumps

What’s the biggest thing you’ve ever pulled off at Lake Neusiedl?

Hmm... I really don't remember a special one to be honest.
