In 1987, a Bucky Lasek appearance in amateur skateboarding contests caught the attention of Powell Peralta talent scouts. Peralta offered to sponsor him. In 1988, a Bucky Lasek appearance made its debut in the Fourth Bones Brigade video, Public Domain.
In 1990, Lasek entered the pro scene, but it was also the time when skateboarding and vert skating were eventually losing popularity. When ESPN made vert skating part of the X Games in the mid 1990s, Lasek’s career made a comeback. He was able to show his talent and soon became one of the best known skateboarders. Some of his signature contest tricks include the Heelflip Frontside Gay Twist and Switch Frontside 540. Lasek is one of only two skaters who can flip his board in to an invert. He is also the only one to do a 720 on the vert and land backwards.
In 2006, Lasek’s medal count at the X Games reached 10. This included six gold medals. He has also earned 2004 titles in the Vans Triple Crown, Gravity Games, and the Slam City Jam. In 2008, he emerged first in Dew Action Sports Tour overall rankings.
