Rune Glifberg

← Back to the Portfolio

The king of Copenhagen Rune Glifberg. His smooth style and versatility sets him apart from every skateboarder out there. Combine that with his sense of humor and easy-going personality and you get one of the most loved skateboarders of our time.

We wanted to ask Rune Glifberg a couple of questions.

What does it mean being pro, when are you professional and what their thoughts are on skateboard contests.

“Where does the line go for being pro or not?” The way skateboarding is going right now, ams and even non sponsored skaters are sometimes skating better than the pros, so how much it is just image? Another thing we keep asking ourselves is,

“Do skateboard contests add anything positive to skateboarding?” These days, there are more and more skateboard contests and the prize purses are getting higher and higher. Where is all this going? And is it a good thing?

The best thing about skateboarding is that there is no final answer. There are opinions, but no right and wrong and that´s what I love about skateboarding. You do what feels right for you…
