BMX and Skateboarders Air Their Voice on the Radio

by Oliver Pérez

The tricks and acrobatics on a bicycle or a skateboard are being transmitted by radio through the bilingual program “Cultura Alternativa” (Alternative Culture). The program is dedicated to sharing experiences about these extreme sports, interviewing the big national and international stars of skateboarding and BMX and listening to the best hip-hop.

Luis Elías Benavides

  The programming is being overseen by Nicoyan Luis Elias Benavides, who is a leader of this sport in the canton and has been advocating for the construction of a skate park in Nicoya. 

Cultura Alternativa is aired every Tuesday for one hour, from 9 to 10 p.m., on the frequency of Onda Brava.  The station’s office is located in Liberia  However the program can only be listened to via Internet, entering the website www.ondabravaradio.com.

“The idea of this show is to let people know about what happens in the world of extreme sports, both on the national and international scenes. Information is given about recent events, upcoming competitions and interviews with athletes and event organizers. The most recent interview was with the best athlete of the flatland, Canadian Chase Gouin,” related Benavides. 

During the month that the program has been on the air, listeners have enjoyed the new radio alternative, since according to Benavides, they have received positive comments from weekly listeners in Argentina, Paraguay, Colombia, Panama, Venezuela, Dominican Republic, England, Germany and the United States, among other countries. 

To listen to past programs or the interview with Chase Gouin, search for “Cultura Alternativa” on the social network Facebook.
