How is the scene in Chile?

Now its getting better there are not much contests but there are good projects with flatland in schools so more kids are interested in the sport making the scene bigger, also there are some really good underground riders in Chile.

Anyone you would like to thank?

My family for the support that they give me through all the years of riding, the Chilean scene specially Carlos Jorquera and Carlos Espinosa for teaching me, also thanks to Jean William (dub) for giving me many opportunities !

Family the flatland community and friends!!!

Ben has been riding a wave since he turned 18. He left Chile for the first time and went and did shows in Beijing, China for two consecutive summers. In between those two contracts he travelled South America on the IGI Bandwagon with Dub and Taku. On his return from China, he was signed to RB and from then on was able to travel and compete in the World of BMX FLatland.
