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.
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.

Project Manager / Photographer
Born in Manresa (Barcelona) the 7th of December, 1973. I’ve always been in touch with the mountain and curiosity has driven me to practice adventure sports like climbing, paragliding, surf, snowboard, and finally splitboard. The mountain guide and good friend David Pujol, introduced me to snowboard in the 90’s, and now I’m passionate about splitboarding world.
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 beginning the purpose has been to do something unique and different that could reflect the mountain philosophy that I share with my friends.
Communication / Editor
Born in Barcelona in 1985, I was introduced to the mountains at an early age, thanks to my parents and our trips to visit my family in Val d’Aran, one of the most beautiful valleys in the Pyrenees. As a kid I was extremely happy spending time there, and always felt something missing when I had to go back to the city. This eventually turned me into a true mountain lover, so when the time came to choose a degree, I chose geology as it would allow me to be in the mountains most of the time. Becoming specialized in snow science, but with a strong background in teaching and sales, I tend to float around anything related to these three things.
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.
Editor in chief
Snowboarding introduced myself into the mountains 20 years ago. During all this time, my snowboarding has evolved, and now, I feel that I have found the way that I’ve been looking for. It’s not only about shredding. It’s just the way that let me being part of the mountain for a while.
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!
