When he’s not dancing to the nose of his 9’5” MarMar...
You'll find Max wearing his fins in the water.

Name: Max Claudet
Date of birth: June 9, 1997
Home break: Medewi (OK, not technically a home break since he’s Swiss but his favourite break)

Flklr board of choice: 9’5” MarMar single fi
Instagram: @max_puravida


Max looks like the love child of Iggy Pop and Abraham Lincoln, which kind of sums up the two opposing forces behind this FLKLR gem. Max comes from the famously uniform Switzerland (Max himself was in uniform doing compulsory military service not too long ago) but at heart he is a free-spirited rockstar who just wants to shred waves and take beautiful photos.

Meet the totally unique Max…

What's your FLKLR?

Where I grew up, you had to conform to be accepted, I always felt there was something missing and I asked myself what message do I want to leave behind when I’m gone. I didn’t just want to exist, I wanted to live. Folklore is a team of free spirits, who refuse to be led, writing our own definition of life. I finally found some souls who share my passion.

What inspires you?

I’m inspired by the relationship between humans and nature. Every time you paddle out and every time you push yourself, the ocean will teach you something new. It’s not a competition, it’s about having fun and bringing some magic to your life.

Who's style do you admire the most?

Craig Anderson, I love his style, no matter what he rides, it can be on a single fin, twin. I’m sure this guy even shreds on an Alaia.
