You’ve heard the stories about hard work paying off? Well, they don’t apply to Anthony Furlong. For some insight into his general approach to things, he says his ideal day would be spent in the following way: Sleeping. Okay, that’s probably an exaggeration, but Furlong’s pretty much got it like that.

Anthony grew up in Augusta, Georgia, right across the river from legendary vert pro Brian Howard. Howard set an example for how to properly shred vert like a champ, and Furlong proved a quick study. Before his 14th birthday he finished the 1992 NSA amateur series ranked fifth in the country. When vert skating took a dive soon after, and with no one to skate with back home, it looked like Furlong might go down with it. But he stuck to his guns and at 19 moved to Tampa where the vert scene was thriving. Today he is one of the last remaining American vert pros based somewhere other than Southern California.

Anthony is the definition of a natural. With a consistency that few can match, he finished fifth overall in the first year of the Dew Tour and has been tearing it up ever since, although with results a bit more hit and miss than he probably would have hoped. These days he spends his days on the vert ramp with Mike Frazier, and his nights in Ybor City, for better or for worse. Anthony is still gunning for a spot on the podium, but either way, he’ll go down in skate history as a guy with one of the best Madonnas in the business. You’ll know it if you hear it.
