Maxi Schaible – “Welcome To The Flow Life” Exclusive Element Part

Maxi Schaible is one of the most dedicated skate rats around. His love for the plank has now landed him a spot on Element representing Germany. The positive, motivated and productive dude he is, I’m sure we’ll be seeing more from him in next to no time. But for now, check out this little welcome clip he’s filmed for Element, some Burny photos, and find out what he’s got to say…

Maxi, you live in Stuttgart, right? Who is your daily skate-crew?

Actually, I moved to Mannheim for uni. But I still go to Stuttgart a lot to sse my girlfriend and all the homies. I skate with whoever’s got time right then, usually the dudes from Arrow & Beast: Fabi Gehring, Michael Tan, Mark Metzner or sometimes Dom Schneider.

Flow guy with a welcome part… how come, how did you get the hook-up?

Felix at Urban Supplies distribution told me Element was looking for a European flow rider from Germany… then I got invited to join the Make It Count comp in Bremen, met Alex (Deron), the Euro TM, and a bunch of other people. That got the ball rolling.

How’s this been working out for you so far?

I’m not forcing anything… I just let them know what I’m up to. I just skate.

Is this your stepping stone for the big skate carreer?

I’m not thinking about any of this at all. I just want to skate and take things as they come.

What and where do you like to skate most at the moment

We’ve been filming for a thing with DVS the last few months, so I’ve been on the road quite a bit, so that was obviously a ton on street spots. At home I usually cruise the parks.

Anything planned with Element that you’re looking forward to?

Nothing after this clip… let’s see!

I’m sure you’ve got something in the pipeline though. Any tours, projects, goals? Tricks you wanna bag, more parts?

The DVS project I talked about is going online end of November, that should be cool. And I’ll probably fly out to South-East Asia in early December. My girlfriend will be there for a few months. I want to combine visiting her with a skate trip to Indonesia and Thailand.

Your dream tour with five Element riders from all time:

Reese Forbes, Ray Barbee, Chad TimTim, Mark Appleyard and The Muska.

Your four elements you can’t live without:


The three best skate cities; in Germany, Europe and world-wide:

In Deutschland Frankfurt has been quite fun lately, a lot of good spots! In Europe I would say Copenhagen. Worldwide: any city in China is a spot paradise!

Tea of coffee?
Coffee in the mornings, tea at night.

Your one biggest inspiration in life?

I couldn’t single out one destinct person that has left such an impression on me. It would be a mix of experiences and people that inspire me.

Thanks Maxi, and all the best.
