Trivia and Quotes

  • Quotes

    • Bucky: I do feel fear, skating at the level I'm at right now. Sometimes it's hard to go to the ramp and do all my tricks--because what I do is so mind-boggling.

    • Bucky: I have two children and one wife so I have a pretty crazy setup. I go from one extreme to another, from changing diapers and stressing about getting the kids in a car, to driving to the skatepark and padding up, dropping into a whole other life.

    • Bucky: I don't expect anything less of myself than being able to do what I can do.

    • Bucky: (When asked what he hated the most in skateboarding) Being at the ramps on time when I'm trying to learn a trick, and having to sign autographs while I'm beating myself up on the ramp.

    • Bucky: (When asked how did he start skateboarding) It was the cool thing to do at the time. I used to breakdance and I used to ride my BMX bike, and my bike got stolen, and skateboarding was the new in-thing. I would borrow my friend's skateboard we would go out. I got another bike and I would ride around and share a skateboard. And at Christmas I got a skateboard. And ever since then, I've been on it.

    • Bucky: (When asked where would he be in 10 years) Probably doing the same thing, but maybe? Actually, I don't know what I'll be doing 10 years from now.

    • Bucky: It's a little intimidating, but once you get over that hill, it's easy. Once you get over the fear, it becomes a lot easier.

    • Bucky: I never thought it [skateboarding] would come to this, ... I just did it thinking I could get free skateboards and some travel. And I wanted to be the best. That was my drive.

    • Bucky: Staying on top is what keeps me going.

    • Bucky: I'm not going anywhere yet.

    • Bucky: I plan on coming back even better next year -- as long as the body holds up, ... At this level, I've got a few more years left in me.

    • Bucky: (The other riders) were all stressing. As long as they know (I'm capable of knocking them off), that's all that matters.

    • Bucky: I came out swinging. I'm not going just for a top finish. I'm here to win.
