Rune Glifberg

Rune Glifberg (born October 7, 1974 in Copenhagen, Denmark) is a professional skateboarder who currently resides in the Leucadia district of Encinitas, California. Glifberg began skating at age 11 after a friend brought a board over to his house. In the early 1990s, Glifberg turned professional as a vert skater and made the trek across the Atlantic Ocean to the United States. Glifberg signed on with Flip Skateboards, the company he still skates for, and immediately made a splash by trying wild stunts in pools and on vert ramps.
