About Splitfest

History of Splitfest

In 2011 Shane Orchard started Splitfest at Temple basin. The aim was to create a learning environment for people who wanted to try splitboarding and to inspire adventure. Since then the festival as grown and Temple basin's lodges are booked out every year. Every year splitborders from all over the world converge to shred at this magnificent location. Come and join us this September 3-6th, 2020
