Somehow was able to get an interview with Max for Heckride. He's pretty hard to get a hold of so hope you enjoy. Art by the awesome @doublesteveburger

Oh, fuck yeah. Good work as always, Monkey and all involved.
This thread makes me feel like I just came across two Juggalos fucking in an alley.

Aw shit yeah!



Side note too @Monkey_Mcpott, could we keep an on-going thread of these instead of individuals? It'd be dope to hold a running total and document some fire responses all in one versus broken apart, while also making access to these easy. I know we ripped Shetler apart for doing the multi-thread thing a while back about his podcast, but this is more as a compliment than a burn.

Really sick read, thank you. I always trip out on dudes who went to college while also working and still managed to get it in on the board.

Working any kind of job that doesn't involve skateboarding will make you appreciate the time you have to skate.

Loving these interviews. I don't know why but I always thought he was younger than he is.

Damn, I didn't know any of that about Max, especially how he went to Pratt on a full scholarship and worked while he did that. Much respect for that! The story about his mom watching his part for a film class is fuckin gold too. I wish my old film classes were cool enough to cover local skate videos.

This for sure. Another knock out of the park, Monk!

Yeah same, does anyone actually know his age? Is he a fair bit older than the other guys? The talk of skating a jump ramp with his brothers in the 80s kind of spun me.

Anyway, another amazing interview! Glad to hear there's no bad blood with Alex and he seemed pretty understanding about the whole thing.

Also he's such a low key dude, I never knew about his background in photography/sculpture, looks pretty cool too judging by his website. (http://www.maxspalmer.com) Cool to know there's a pro whose skating has so much personality that he doesn't have to rely on putting this aspect of him out there for marketability.

Yeah there's the whole "absence makes the heart grow fonder" aspect there. It's always impressive to me when people still find time to consistently skate on top of those other big commitments. It can require a certain level of regimented routine to your days that can also be affected by things like what type of job you have.

He says he graduated HS in 2006. I did too and am 32, so guessing 32/33?

Thank you for this!

Dude has kind of a wild life. Crazy that he works, and then still is one of the best dudes on a board (one of my favorites at least).

Hope he lands somewhere for boards. I have a feeling he doesn't even care! Max rules

So good when learning more about a pro who's skating you love actually makes you like them more.

good interview! would have been funny if you told max who the guy was with the painted board, if you know the backstory about him.

the interview explains why no one really saw anything of him until the 2010s. it's crazy how late he started to skate seriously compared to others. how old is max? he must be in his early 30s if he finished high school in 2006 right?

EDIT nvm about the age question, i'm having a case of posting adhd, sorry

Heckride is barely five minutes old and ready to be crowned the best interview site in skateboarding.

it is impressive but not surprising. Credit due, great variety and versatility and always some unique topics. Always thoughtful.

This max one was great, nice and long too!
