Vert.nu was started in 2003 as a hobbyproject (still is) by Uffe “Tailblock” Andersson and Anders “50/50” Karlsson. Back then the main purpose was obvious – where could “old” guys get their skatepics published? Nowhere! All skateboard related sites (in Sweden at least) had their readers among the early teens. After a few years playing around with crappy equipment, Dave ”Carve King” Östlund joined in 2005 as head of photography! In order to gain some real credibility among the vert skaters Putte Backlund was recruited in 2009!
Still we are very proud of being the one of the last non-commercial skateboard initiatives on the internet. (this might of course change if the price is right…)
