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.
