Editorial 13-14



We kick off the new season with major changes: starting this issue, Splitboard Magazine will only be published in English. Also our website and magazine will have a completely new design and format.

The magazine goes one step beyond and consolidates itself as the single, most complete online splitboard magazine in the world. This catalog will blow your minds, are you ready for something different? We are tired of seeing catalogs without personality, this is why we have created a true visual toy for you. We are absolutely persuaded that taking a look at a catalogue should be a unique experience, just like each and every experience we live on our splitboards.

We would like to give props to all of the splitboarders who support us, especially to our buddies in Argentina and Chile, with whom one of our staff members shared great adventures last summer. We are impressed to see how far this project is reaching and how good everyone’s reaction has been in most corners of the Planet.

We take all the support and positive energy we are receiving and we translate it into these pages you are going through right now. It belongs to all of you; it’s your magazine, with your feedback and your experiences. We wouldn’t have hope without your complicity, that is the reason why we are here, because we are driven by curiosity, we are passionate about mountains, about their people and about splitboarding.

38 splitboard brands are awaiting you beyond this page. Some of them have been around for many years, others are trying to find their way in this scene, but we are certain that all of them are contributing with their knowledge to lead splitboarding on the right track.

New generation bindings, boots and very interesting products to provide you with all you might need out there.

Roman Jagl explains his adventure of a thrilling splitboarding tour through the Alps.

Our regular Splitboard-Art section features Marshal Chupa, a young photographer from Vancouver. We are sure that you will be seeing his shots and videos on the best magazines sooner than later.

All good things take their time, we finish our catalogue with Around the World and the priceless contribution of 4 amazing riders, who share their thoughts about splitboarding with us.

Last but not least, we suggest you to read it through carefully, and mostly to enjoy the moment. That’s part of our secret: enjoying every second we invest in producing this catalog.
