How often do you skate together with BMX riders on a vert ramp?
Anthony Furlong: Very often, I do a lot of demos

Do you bond instantly because you're both using the same tool (the ramp)?
Anthony Furlong: I do, but over the years not all skaters did like I did.

Do you understand BMX tricks on the vert ramp?
Anthony Furlong: I'm a fan so I know most tricks and understand how they work.

Do you drop in on a BMX bike every now and then?
Anthony Furlong: Nope, but I peg stalled in on Mirra's at 11 years ago. At events where there's skateboarding and BMX, do you watch the BMX contest as well?
Anthony Furlong: Yes, almost always....park and dirt are my faves.

Name three of your favourite BMX riders:
1. Jay Miron
2. Corey Bohan
3. Morgan Wade

Have you done doubles with BMX riders during a show?
Anthony Furlong: A lot.... Mirra, Nyquist, Eggleston, Walker, Parker, Davies, McCoy, Tabron, Warden, etc

When is the next time you'll run into BMX Vert riders?
Anthony Furlong: Ran into Kagy, Tabron and Mccann last night at Pastrana's wedding. Rooming with Zack Warden on the road right now. I'm doing shows lately with Gabe Weed, Trevor Meyer, Austin Coleman and Jimmy Walker.
