- Career History. How did you start skating? In my home town of Baltimore, MD, I first picked up a skateboard at the age of 12 after my bike was stolen. Soon after I was competing in amateur contests and quickly climbed up the ranks as a professional skateboarder.

He continues to maintain his place among the top of the vert world, taking top titles in the Dew Action Sports Tour, ASA Championships, and the X Games.

In 2000, Bucky became the first skateboarder ever in the history of X Games to win gold in two consecutive years with back to back wins in 1999 and 2000. He repeated the honor in 2003 and 2004.
