Carrying on the proud vertical traditions started in Denmark by Nicky Guerrero.
I remember watching Rune at the X-Games, maybe even when it was the Extreme Games still, and being blown away with how smoothly he skated. He was doing all the latest vert tricks higher and more stylishly than everybody else. I've been a fan ever since. And a lazy one at that since it took this long to scan a picture of him for the website.
Fury was a truck company launched out of Birdhouse. The team included Tony Hawk, Geoff Rowley, Chad Muska and Rune at the beginning. Lance Mountain and Bob Burnquist soon joined up. The trucks had a weird design that made them suited more for carving and ramps than street skating. When will people learn that it is a lost cause to start a new truck company?
