About Split :
In 1988 split was born much like a lot of companies are. There was a garage, some guys who couldn’t be bothered working for anyone else, nothing but t-shirts, some bad haircuts and a three-day workweek. Since then Split has turned into a major fashion label catering to people just like it’s founders.

Split, based in Southern California has a full line of progressive, cutting edge men’s and women’s apparel. Split also has licensees in Canada, Europe, and Japan as well as distribution in many other countries around the world. Split is a global brand with consistent marketing and brand image. As a cross boardsport brand Split will continue to emphasize the relationship between lifestyle and action sports as we have from the beginning.
