We believe that in order to get the best performance of splitboard it has to be designed and made as two pieces. Both skis have to work well when separate to get the most of the ascend, save splitboarders energy and avoid uneven feel under foot while going uphill. We know well that comfortable ascend can make your day out splitboarding even better. We love the feeling when it finally gets to riding. Swift transition from skis back to board mode, strap in and enjoy the ride. That´s where you can rely on our splitboards performance. It´s simple. We don’t just cut snowboard in half. We make splitboards, not adapt snowboards! Based on our experience and years of development we are aware that there´s not one board construction which will fit all. Options are endless, and so is variety of terrain to be ridden. We have the pleasure to meet and share our experience with all kinds of riders. Riders with different skills and attitude towards splitboarding. That is why we offer four types of construction. Tip to tail wood core is our standard. We use Paulownia or Poplar wood while trying to reduce use of plastic as much as possible. That is why certain boards have wooden sidewalls instead of usual poly urethane. Feeling wood is good. Most of the boards in our line come with carbon, fiber glass or wooden top sheet...no plastic. In order to support sustainability of our project we choose suppliers from literally around the corner. All of production is done in house. It helps us to control all the production processes from the very beginning, and therefore ensure the highest quality of the finished product. In the upcoming season our focus stays the same, to build versatile splitboards that can tackle any terrain (yeah even groomed runs!), that perform exceptionally well skinning up as well as charging down the mountain. We continue to work on developing 3rd generation of our super light carbon splitboard. By incorporating state of the art X carbon technology in the process we managed to shave off substantial amount of weight and build one of the lightest boards on the market. For the deepest powder days there is our surf-snow project Capitan. Strapped or unstrapped, it is all about flow. Welcome on board.
Gara splitboards connects passionate people together, doesn’t matter what they do or who they are.
Premium X Carbon is our solid construction based on triax carbon/fiber glass, reinforced by carbon stringers. We begin where some other brands ends.
Tech X Carbon construction takes advantage of our triax carbon/fiber glass with special raw glass top sheet added to the mix. It´s all you need if you’re looking for high performance and light weight splitboard.
Wood X Carbon, is based on Tech X construction. Top sheet is from Veneer. Its capacity to absorb vibrations makes the board ride very smooth plus it looks real good! “Feeling Wood” The top sheet can be treated with epoxy or simply waxed to keep the snow out of the surface and let you float.
SL (Super-Light) is our lightest construction. We´ve been making carbon splitboards for five years now and every year we manage to build our carbon board so it provides more comfortable and smooth ride than last years .But don’t be fooled! This toy isn’t for everyone! It´s construction
Classick is our everyday shape. As already mentioned in the previous seasons, we are looking for a concept of one versatile board. Splitboard that will take us on a comfortable energy-saving hike and wild freeride, while being enjoyable on the slopes like any regular solid board. This board will be well appreciated by all carving lovers. Youknow, for those who love waking up early to catch the first chair and enjoy groomed slopes. We will never stop improving our boards further. Not even our basic model CLASSICK. That´s why we are happy to introduce a new core for this splitboard with the main focus on improvement of touring and skiing mode.
Picking up this board is a safe bet!

The Duck board evolved from the Classick. It is again super versatile board, convenient for touring, backcountry freeriding as well as for slope carving. But this time, according to our riders wish, we fine-tuned the stance to center and used more or less twin core for a bigger pop. We kept a slightly longer nose, which makes the regular ride more comfortable but doesn’t annoy when going backwards. Like Classick, the board has fine tune touring mode which is very well balanced. Improved skinning mode will be ready when you need it.
This board is the best choice for freestyle obsessed riders.

Ranger board is our highlight for this season. It is a splitboard designed and created from 0. It reflects five years experience of splitboard designing, testing and user’s feedback. Ranger is for riders looking for directional, stable and smooth board. Ranger won´t burn your back leg but yet doesn‘t require big back stance. This is the secret of Ranger´s stability even when going full speed. The story is simple. We used cut rocker tail with a pintail shape, made the nose bit longer, developed an mellow nose rocker (someone may call it as well S rocker) and made a bigger side cut radius to keep the board calm in high speed. But don’t worry, because of the rockered tail the board still turns very easily. When thinking about the right length for your board, definitely look more at running edge rather than the total length. Basically pick board 5cm shorter compare to your regular board. Ranger will perform very well on the slope but its day will come with the powder.

Capitan is snow surf, best gun for powder days! Capitan will also work well on the spring slushy slopes.Shape based on S rocker in the front and slow rocker in the back. Small camber’s been kept between inserts in order to have Capitan under control at all times. Pintail option makes board more stable when landing big powder ollies. Capitan can also be finished by fish tail, to slash every tiny corner. Board can be ridden with or without binding, it is up to you.
Fun is guaranteed.
Right out of the box GARA Duck feels, same as all GARA boards, extremely light. Shape is definitely more directional twin with noticeable set back, then true twin with predominantly cambered profile with little rocker in the tip and tail for extra floatation. více...
I had almost forgoten how much Pyrenees and it´s culture amazed me past autumn, when the leaves were about to fall and all the trees were saturated by great variety of colours. It was in April when my Czech friends came to visit and ride Pyrenees in spring. I was when I remembered and again discovered how beautiful this piece of hilly land is. více...
Saboredo splitboard area is a unique project formed by two passionate splitbaorders who decided to live up in the mountains and promote splitboarding. Saboredo cabin sits in the altitude of 2310m above Vall d´Aran, Pyrenees. Surouned by amazing terrain makes it a prímo destination for all those who like to let to loose themselves and enjoy all forms of splitboarding you can ever imagine. více...
Big congratulations to GARA ambassador Míra Kube for winning Kick the Vik Eco Freeride Tour in Tavascan. více...
In June I moved to Spain and first stop on my way to that beautiful country was in Pyrenees. I got amazed. During the fall I started to look for the right place where to hide and ride during the winter. First I went to see Vall D´Aran with it´s amazing terrains. But then I got to know the quiet and colourfull valley with endless variety of terrains all around. The decision was made. Pallars specifically Vall de Cardós in Catalan part of Pyrenees with it´s A-class freeride resort Tavascan seemed to be perfect! Pyrenees... více...
It has been more than 20 years since we split. One country became two. Nevertheless we do feel that some kind of brotherhood of Czechoslovakia still exists. How symptomatic it sounds. One board splits in two skis in order to hike the highest mountains where again it becomes one board to enjoy the best ride. From my point of view it´s the mountains and their unique power which makes us come to Slovakia again and again. více...
We drove all night. It was still dark when we arrived to the Alps. We were so happy to see the snow. Not much of it but better than nothing. In the quiet night there stood solely van on the parking lot. We parked next to it, opened a beer and smoked in the silence. Suddenly I hear „what the hack is this“? There´s a chimney sticking out of the rear door, man! Real Tzigan caravan! více...
During the hot summer night while having beers my friend started to talk about snowboarding and traveling. How cliché, sitting by the table with your friends, in your home town or no matter what town. You know, lot of big talks and lot of small talks. It was summer so why were we talking about snowboarding? Anyways. Dan said he´ll be going to states and that he´s looking for buddy who could take a camera and join him. There´s so many things to talk about but there´s much more things to do. Half a year later we arrived to Jackson Hole. I am sure that many people wrote a lot about this place. No wonder! I´ll make it short. I Wish I could get back to Jackson Hole one day soon! více...
