TRUE WIND is a new windsurf and art project series where Max Matissek combines both of his passions: windsurfing and art. It's about creating extreme windsurf pictures at physically impossible places.


The goal of every TRUE WIND Project is to photograph a snapshot of Max' fantasy and to create a surrealistic mixed media piece of art with plenty of contrasts in different aspects.


The first of the series was created in the "Wien Kanal Speicher Simmering"  - a huge underground rainwater reservoir below Vienna.

The second picture got realized "over the rooftops of Vienna" in a 25m short pool on top of the infamous "Alt Erlaa" buildings.
