Maxim Habanec was born in Prague in 1992. He started skateboarding when he was six years old and since then his ethos has been simple – to just push himself to the limit.

In 2009, he took the title at the Czech Republic Championship, and tasted contest success again a year later with a well-deserved third place at the Skateboarding World Cup in Rome. 2012 saw a repeat performance of his domination of the national scene, when he took first place in street at the Adidas Skateboarding Championship in Prague.
