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.

Rune now has a part ownership of Flip, and looks to continue his skateboarding for years to come.

Rune is sponsored by: Flip skateboards/HKD Flip Bearings, Independent Truck Company, Ricta Wheel Dynamics, Volcomstone Colthing, Etnies Footwear, Oakley, Rockstar Energy Drink, Skullcandy, Utilityboardsupply.com, Daggerskates, P.R.O. Pro Riders.tv, Bell Helments & Alis. Glifberg was also a playable character in the first five installments of Tony Hawk series of video games.

His second signature shoe with etnies is called the Forsvar, meaning defend in Danish.

Rune is known for his deep bag of tricks. Rune is also known as the master of Kickflip Backside Lipslide.
