Hello, I'm Max and I spent a few months as a volunteer with the skate-aid project in Windhoek, Namibia.

I’m a forty-year-old skateboarder and surgeon from Norway who is on sabbatical leave together with my family (wife and two children). On January 5, 2024, we arrived in Namibia for the first time.
