Little is known about Bucky’s family and growing up, although an incident happened when he was in his early teens. His bicycle was stolen and as a result he turned to skateboards, and little by little became interested in skateboard moves and tricks. Soon he became one of the better amateurs, and at one amateur contest he was spotted by one of the scouts of Powell Peralta.
The skateboarding company took him under its wing, and he started developing his skills, however, his categories started becoming less popular soon after he entered competitive events.

The following year he won his first gold medal in the vert category at the X Games held in San Francisco, and also won the silver medal in the vert doubles category. He repeated the same success in 2000, and in 2003 won gold medals in both categories. He continued his dominance at X Games in 2006, winning also the gold medal for Vert Best Trick. From 2008 until 2010 he competed in Dew Action Sports Tour and Vans Pro-Tec Pool Party, in which he won several first places, increasing his net worth by a large margin. He also competed in X Games, winning silver medals in Los Angeles 2008, 2009 and in 2013 won gold medals in Foz do Iguaçu, Barcelona, Munich and Los Angeles as well, in the vert category.
