Splitboard Magazine team
Splitboard Magazine is a unique project, created in 2010 by Marc Sixto and Alvaro Rubioc in a burst of unstoppable creativity and an overflow of positive energy.
It wasn’t after long that we found good friends who joined forces and supported us from the beginning. We’ll never thank all of them enough for their support and collaboration.
In 2011, we were joined by the rest of the current team, David Pérez, Víctor Perisé and Elena González de Murillo, marking the start of a new era for the magazine.
Splitboardmag was born from passion for splitboarding and we still make it with the same aim we had on day one: creating a cult magazine, innovating with a new reading format and the will to share experiences and adventures with all of you. Splitboardmag is the first and single online magazine in the world.
Project Manager / Photographer
10 years ago I began to work as a freelance photographer for different companies and in several disciplines like industrial, publishing, sports, etc
Splitboardmag allows me to continue my own personal and professional adventure. My work in the magazine supposes a big challenge as from the begginning the purpose has been to do something unique and different that could reflect the mountain philosophy that I share with my friends.
Communication / Marketing / Editor
Joining Splitboard Magazine was a great chance for me to work in something I’m passionate about, travel to exotic locations and meet interesting people that share the same passion as me, the mountains.
At 24 I moved to Barcelona, where I studied graphic design and later worked in the marketing and advertising department of a sporting goods multinational. Around this time I did a post-grad in art direction and decided to start working for myself.
While doing some online research about splitboarding I stumbled upon something that immediately grabbed my attention “New splitboard magazine, we’re looking for partners”. I’m a designer and this is my world so I contacted them to offer my help.
Marc got back to me and we met to chat about his idea for the project. The concept, philosophy and creative freedom on offer was impossible to turn down. And also that the project revolves around splitboarding and the mountains made it a dream come true for me.
Editor in chief
I try to spend the most of my days off at home in La Cerdanya, travelling around the Pyrenees and looking for new mountains and new awesome terrain to shred all over the world. Of course, always sharing this feeling with my local crew and with all the splitboard family when we meet out there. How important is sharing with the people you love. Get out there, feel the mountain, respect it and shred safe.
See you in the mountains!
Elena G. De Murillo
After struggling to approach and hike to the top of different mountains with my board on my back, slpitboarding appeared as the ultimate solution, at a time when I was starting to ask myself if what I did made any sense, just on time. Splitboarding gave me a whole new approach to the mountain: a landscape of endless possibilities, the chance to sweat it all while comfortably skinning up enjoying the silence of a natural environment with a couple of friends. Then the joy of strapping to a board and riding down earning my turns, leaving no CO2 footprints and feeling one of the luckiest persons on Earth.
The improvement of the equipment over the past few years and the increasing
number of splitboarders around me has only made things better.
