Profile:

Rune's trick arsenal is made even more devastating because of the massive amplitude he takes onto the vert ramp. He is the best vert rider to come out of Europe. His style coupled with a positive attitude, makes him a favorite with skateboard fans around the world. Raised in Denmark, Glifberg has lived in Costa Mesa California since 1995. He recently stopped producing Digital Skateboarding Video Magazine and now spends a little more time with his girlfriend and daughter in California and his family in Denmark.
