Hi everyone,
it's Victor, from the free online magazine splitboard.cat

Just wanted to show you the latest issue, we have named it "always searching"

http://splitboard.cat/05-always-searching

Some of you might know us, but in case you don't, i'll just tell you that this is our 5th issue, the third one in spanish and english. We are a group of splitboarders based in the Pyrenees mountains who decided to start a splitboard magazine because we thought that the splitboarder community needed an specific magazine that contains articles about trips, technique, safety, products, and more.

We are putting a lot of passion and effort on it trying to offer a quality product, so we would be really happy if you could give us your feedback! we are always looking to improve the magazine!

looking forward to hearing your opinion about it!

Víctor

G'day Victor, hey great to see a new mag dedicated to Splitboarding. Down under in NZ splitting definitely in a growth phase, having a resource that specialises in splitboarding will be good for the community of riders who are already out there doing it and those who are curious and thinking about it as a back country travel means. Keep up the good work mate and its great to see NZ feature in your latest #5 issue.

cheers, Rich

thanks guys for your answers!

Splityheaven, what computer do you use? let us know because this is definitely something we want to improve. We tried in all our different computers and it was fine. is the text too light?

rich and pedrodelfuego, thanks for the compliments! gracias!


we know that coming from Europe, and especially from a little region in the north of Spain is difficult to get to everyone in the world, especially to you guys in the States. But we think that there's no borders for splitboarding, it's a global thing, so we hope we can get to the american community aswell.

if you have any idea about what kind of content could be interested for the splitboard community, let us know!

yeah, the text is just a little light.

As a snowboarder that has a huge passion for traveling to different Mountains around the world, I want to see articles about where the snow is falling, and what is getting ridden. I don’t care to see any kind of sponsored snowboarder thing. I want to see local hardcore splitters from around the world, riding lines that are splitboard accessible. I want to see what is getting ridden, depending on snow conditions around the world. I would love to see you guys branch out as far as possible

I also want to see splitboard product testing.

Again, good job with the Mag, and I will definitely be checking each issue out.

Travis

Hi again,
ok, i write this down for next issues to consider! in our computers it was good enough to read it, but it might be a bit too light yeah...

I think that as splitboarders we all have the same passion for travelling to different mountain ranges and discover new places. In this latest issue you could see some opinions from New Zealand and Czech republic and, for example, in the previous issue, we had two very good articles from Chile and from Norway, you should take a look at them.
http://splitboard.cat/04-welcome-winter

and in the catalog issue, we had some different opinions from people from japan, austria, spain, france... all of the,m sharing their point of view and how the splitboarding scene is in every single country. we named that section around the world, it s at the end of the magazine
http://splitboard.cat/magazine/splitboard-catalag-11-12


for next season there will be many more trip reports. Just a hint, one guy from the staff just made it to the Grand Paradiso and the Mt Blanc on a splitboard a couple of weeks ago!! so there will be a report about it for sure!


about the splitboard testing, we did some field test for this latest issue, and we will do more the coming season!

thanks again!!

Hey Peri, Thanks for the reading material. In my opinion it's great to see some written split board stoke. Do you know if we are going to see fitwell's boots shipped to the USA for retail?

glad you like it 802smuggler!!
we don t know exactly if Fitwell will be available in the States, but we know for sure that these guys did a huge effort to come out with this boot and they re going to promote it a lot everywhere in the world for sure!
especially because the biggest part of the splitboarding market is in the States, I think they will be available there.

we will try to get some articles about them for next issues!

Well done Victor! I really like the electronic magazine format. The pictures in there were very inspiring.

Here's another vote for adding a section about those who rip but are not in the professional scene. Maybe call the section "Locals" where you pick out a rider or group of riders in a unique location around the world and write up a small article about them. Maybe they could share a few photos from their "secret stashes".

Occasionally, I pick up a few other magazines like rock and ice, and climbing. They usually show case the pros on routes that for me are just untouchable. Great photos, and amazing places, but it is just beyond me. Not that this is bad, I just tend to get bored with it.

Splitboarding seems a little different. It's not so much about gnarly cliff drops and big tricks (although there are plenty of riders out there who crush it like this). When in the backcountry, the focus seems to me to be a little different. In general, the more risky things like big airs and tricks get toned down due to be far from help, but rather it becomes about enjoying the mountains, getting away from the busy work life, the great friendly backcountry community, pushing yourself to reach what you thought was unreachable, riding esthetic lines and of course, getting fresh deep powder!

I know everyone is different, and that's what makes life great. This is just my :twocents:

Thanks for the stoke and look forward to the next issue!

Check out semi-rad...They are all about that kind of stuff.

although they offer no split coverage, the writing is good

thanks for your feedback keffler!

we are actually trying to keep it pretty non-professional in that way, since we believe as you do that splitboarding is and will always be quite DIY and about the pursuit of happiness and powder, and you don't need to be a pro to do that.

Even though every issue has one interview with a pro-rider, all the other articles are non-pro mostly, just people that love mountains and splitboarding.

we like it that way and we'll try to keep doing it like that!


any other idea about our magazine? we are changing the format, since the issuu format was a bit annoying to read... the new format will be better to read in any smartphones or tablets, but it will still keep being very visual and interactive.
