Get Blind With Jake

Get halfway up the Vert Stick This one isn't so bad, but you have to time your pumps well to keep speed up. Push 3 times or do some flip tricks to get going (these seem to get you going faster than pushing for some reason). Go down through the arrows, pumping with THE RIGHT HAND GRAB CROUCH BUTTON. On the ramp, pump at the very bottom, do a trick at the lip and start spinning with the LEFT STICK for a 540 (that's a 360 + 180 more degrees, so you'll land backwards). Get ready to pump again up...

Raising Coin

This one is really tough, even for good players -- especially if you don't know this challenge's little secret Grabs. That's right -- that messed up excuse for a half pipe is great for grabs. And you can tweak them with the ANALOG STICKS and face buttons all you want. Also, as you go back and forth in that bowl between them, do fancy flip tricks to get your score up even higher. Now that you know that, there's one other thing you need to know multipliers. Starting at the very beginning you...

Boneyard Blast

1) You want to aim for the cement hubba instead of the rail. On one pass you can do a trick onto it, grind it, and trick off, adding spin and some grabs for points. Pump the quarter pipe and come back at it and you can get on top for huge air off the other side. Expect your opponents to get up to 600 or so, so aim high 2) The long rail is good for weird grinds, so add some spin to land one. Really though, the big scores come from doing flip tricks while grinding. Get some good speed going...

BLAOW John Cardiel Pro Challenge

do a 24.0 ft grind on the coping This one can be done in two separate parts, so tackle the transfer first. This requires you to go off the wall of the pool on one side, landing on the other, as notated by the orange arched line. You don't have to be nearly as high as that line, your wheels just have to leave the hip on one side and touch nothing but air until they land on the other. To accomplish this you must only pump around a bit, by hitting THE RIGHT HAND GRAB CROUCH BUTTON. This should...

The Think Pink Pool

Get enough speed by pumping or pushing to clear the edge of the pool. Press the OBJECT GRAB BUTTON as soon as you reach the edge. Stoke the crowd (with 7,500 points) Get 7,500 points for your demo in 2.5 minutes. Here is where you apply what you've learned. Use humps and ramps to get air and do 360 spins and tweaked grab tricks to get that multiplier up, then follow it with fancy flips or grinds, whatever you are most comfortable with By beating this you'll get a sponsor. When you are...

Busenitz Blitz Dennis Busenitz Pro Challenge

Busenitz is a speedy little bastard, but luckily this follow me sess isn't that long. He'll go down the street, crossing it and finally into an alley a ways down. Keep manuals handy for slowing your speed -- if you get 150 ft. ahead you lose too That doesn't mean you should stop, if you know the way. Down the alley you'll need to gap two stairs on the inside curve, then go down a ramp, littered with detritus. Ollie over this stuff and follow him across the street and down the curved street in...

Oi Lets Skate

Tweaked handplant on the rail above Impossible Almost. This one require height and a sloppy, sloppy move. You must handplant on the rail above the pipe. Oh and there's some idiot blocking you the whole time to make it extra cruel. W T F. The secret to this is pumping with THE RIGHT HAND GRAB CROUCH BUTTON, not with the stick. This will get you much, much higher. On the side away from the catwalk you should pump into the ramp and do a trick off the edge to get height. On the catwalk side, never...

1 L

Tap this and don't do any tricks, going back and forth on the section of pipe where you start. Sooner than later you'll be soaring and yellow out that requirement. Remember you just need to get to the height of the windows, not get on them. Youc an do this before or after the other requirements. RIGHT HAND GRAB CROUCH BUTTON PUMPING FTW For this one you'll be doing a number of drops and gaps over stairs, with the former being preferable. Keep heading down and left, and get to know the area....

Can You Spell Girl

. Beat Carroll and Koston in S.K.A.T.E. While S.K.A.T.E. is a gentleman's game, there's an exploit that you can use if you are tearing your hair out -- and yes, it's cheating. This involves running way up the spillway and grabbing another rail like the one you hop in the challenge. It HAS to be from far away to work, so you have some dragging to do. First, though, start the challenge and quit out. Now, make sure you haven't moved the two items involved in the challenge the ramp and the rail. Go...

Downtown Disorder

1) 360 flip onto the rail and grind down the steps -- it's a good start. 2) Grind the bench, then the rail down the stairs. High ollie onto it to get it early. Flip trick all the way down. 2) Grind the bench, then the rail down the stairs. High ollie onto it to get it early. Flip trick all the way down. 3) Do a series of grinds and flips off the areas from the last round. Not so bad. Or go back to the original spot -- the dudes are surprisingly uncompetitive for this round.

Shave Your Tongue Christian Haslams Pro Challenge

Finger-flip over the staris This one sucks All three moves are in your trick book, and the hippy jump is the easiest. Besides that first essential object, the barrier you have to jump over, make sure you clear the area You don't want the red things getting in the way. The hippy jump needs to be really early, and crouch right when you land for a big ollie over the next stairs. As SOON as you flick UP for that ollie, start holding the LEFT HAND GRAB CROUCH BUTTON, then do a kickflip flick a...

Harsh Barge Blowout

The best way to initiate a grind is to just push up the wall at a 45 degree angle. Go down into the basin of the pool and push or pump up the side at an angle and fiddle with the RIGHT STICK -- if you kind of push it up you'll get into a good grind. thing is, your flips count as grind points while you grind so you want to do big flips, like Lasers and 360 flips if you can to get out of the grind or keep it going. Since multipliers count, it's a good idea to keep...

Skipping School

You don't need to rotate these, you can just ollie high and grab your board with a HAND GRAB CROUCH BUTTON. Push twice and hit the first two ramps easily with an ollie and grab off the tops. The next has some pedestrian traffic, and try to aim off the side you you don't get a face full of lamppost. The final one has stairs behind it so don't go for big air. Just hop on and off with a grab and you can move on.

Goofy Vs Regular

1)Just do 360 degree spun 360 flips or similar high-scoring flips off the volcano, air + flips 500+ scores. This challenge is about adding up the points, so keep scoring 2) Do spin tricks onto the grind rail or low wall and keep flipping.

Do fancy flips for more points. 3) Hit that volcano and do 500-600 point scoring 360 degree spun flips over and over. And over. 3) Hit that volcano and do...

Jam With Danny Way Danny Way Pro Challenge

You must reach the end for your score to count. This one is going to take some skills, honestly, so don't undertake it until you are comfortable with big air, ramps, grabs, tweaks, spin and that sort of thing. First, hit the middle of the three paths by dropping onto it with a quick trick. Grab your board and try and pull off a 180 or 360 spin move on the way down to get your multiplier going early. Doing a trick will actually help you land this it's counterintuitive, but it works. Pump into...

Braydens Ball Blaster

Set your SM, then push all the way to the first stairs marked in orange. Trick over them and hit the ramp at an angle that takes you to the side of the sphere -- you don't to hit it, and this will still count. Crouch ahead of time for big air. On the other side, push straight to freedom to complete the challenge. You can count on Koston to get between 400-800 points, so you should be happy with 600 or so. If you watch him, he does this with BS or FS Boards or Noses. This is a...

We Roll Large

You have a bodyguard, Big Black, but he can get in your way. He will, however, keep tackling the rent-a-cop. You need to grind a ring between two ramps in the middle of the plaza. Set you session marker along the wall to the side, facing the ramp. Give two pushes, hop onto the ring, then hop off onto the other side. Even if you hit the ground it will still complete the challenge. As soon as the challenge ends, head for the street

Over The Rainbow

Do 3 grinds over the rainbow rail Set your marker where you auto-start. You can jump on about 1 3 of the way over the rail and grind the rest to make it count. Any less is no good. Two pushes and a BIG ollie just barely gets you over the peak. Come at it head on, not from the ramp. Ride it over with a regular 50-50, then til the RIGHT STICK back for a BS Tail or Nose grind. Add grabs to vary it up easily as well.

Vert With The Vampire

Unlocked by following Darren, this secluded pool is the spot of a frustrating challenge. Doing the handplant and one-foot grab are easy. For the first, hold the OBJECT GRAB BUTTON for a handplant as you reach the top of the ramp and tweak it with the LEFT STICK. For the the One-Foot, get some air by pumping and hold either FOOT PUSH BUTTON while holding the RIGHT or LEFT HAND GRAB CROUCH BUTTON. It's not so hard either. The height requirement is a real bitch -- but really only if you are...

Creature Style Darren Navarrette Pro Challenge

Darren will lead you down through an alley and at the bottom he'll slide under a barricade with a coffin -- you should do the same, hold both RIGHT AND LEFT HANDGRAB BUTTONS and press THE LEFT FOOT PUSH BUTTON and THE RIGHT FOOT PUSH BUTTON at once. Now he'll turn right down some stairs. Go down the side of the staircase, cross the street, and hop off your board and go inside the doorway. Follow him to the arrow to finish.

Mountain Mayhem

1) Easy do a big spin trick onto the island from the little ramped sides and you should land a crazy grind to slide back down. Flip back off. Push up and try again if you don't get it. Aim for the 700 point range. 2) Pass that first rail on your left and push to the center or end rails. these are long and you can do a fancy flip onto them with easy. Grind them and flip off. Be sure to add some spin to get 180 or 360 tricks. 3) You have a long hubba to grind here, or alternately, and much...

Sidekick Showdown

1) The middle of the three grind spots is preferable on wither side. You can pump the quarter pipes for speed too. This one takes a long grind, switched up a lot, with plenty of juicy kickflips to break it up Lasers, 360 flips etc. Go for 1,000 2) Grind that cement siding like last time with some speed and you'll cruise downhill, able to do fancy flip tricks and rack up quite a score. Or go for air on the ramps -- you'll get this no problem. 3) This one's tough, but you can definitely pull f...

Sponsors

These allow you to wave the entrance fee for challenges, and give you more money for each challenge completed. You'll need to choose the equipment from your respective sponsors to get the sponsor benefits. You can get the wheel and truck sponsors by beating all of the Street and Tranny Contests. The Board sponsor comes when you complete the first Demo. Finally, the shoe sponsorship comes from...

The Bonefest

1) Pumping either half pipe is fine, both have their little annoyances. The nearby one is preferable since it's, well, nearby. Anyway, pumping high enough for 540s is the way to go here. We kept doing major kickflip tricks off the lip and adding spin to those to get in the 15,000 range. And you may need to get this high too A 3x multiplier goes a long way in making 5,000 into 15,000. 2) This one may be close, but it requires the same techniques. Just do Lasers or 360 filps off the edge and add...

Cougar Mountain Massacre

The final race starts at SV Peak and ends in the city far below. You'll need to plan your own route to hit the few orange gates. We suggest heading left at the dam to cross it. This race is a total of about 4 30 of downhill mayhem. It's long, but you won't get much competition from the NPCs. And hey, you should know these streets backwards and forwards by now. Finishing the race nabs you a spawn point at SV Peak.

Streety Mcstreet Skater

Flip trick to grind to flip trick Nose manual to flip trick to manual Go to the grind area of the Mega Compound, about halfway down the park above the long, mid-leveled transition. Here you'll find easy, low grind spots among other things that can help immensely with this challenge. Get that flip to grind to flip out of the way first on the raised grind bar. Just flip on and off, with some good speed. Now, to get the grind to slide, you'll need to star a nose grind by pressing up while you...

The Bowels Of Mongocorp

This one's basic, provided you have the right tools. Big Black cover's the security, so get him to fight the guards far away from your route, which is up the stairs from where you start. Up there is a rail you can pull into place that you can grind out to the edge. This has a lip that will send you over the statue and through the wings easily. Drag it in as close as possible. Ollie onto it, then ollie off the end to fly through the wings and land on the pad below.

Bushman Bowl

1) The key to this is to get to the bowl at the bottom and do huge air tricks. It doesn't hurt to hit some Lasers or 360 flips on the way down A 3x multiplier can be pumped to, just hit some No Foots or Christ Airs. Most likely you'll bail over your competitors, don't get mad, get tech Aim for 5,000 or so. 2)This one can be pretty fun, since grabs can be added to any trick easily, just squeeze THE RIGHT AND LEFT HANDGRAB BUTTONS Even after a flip trick you can do a grab before you make contact...

High And

You don't even need to be going max speed for this one, but you do need to place that little ramp well. Get it close to the wall, in the corner, and aim it almost straight towards the waterfall. This means you'll have to push towards it, crouch early for a big jump, and correct your angle at the last second, ollieing off the edge and over the waterfall, just clearing the little lip below. Don't spin, just soar.

Grindy Mc Grindage

Head to the top of the Res, along the top of section E3. Here, find a hill with no houses, so there are no driveways to break up the curb. These hills are steep, and you'll really cook on them. Get three pushes and ollie onto the curbe to grind it. Stay there, and don't do anything fancy. Kick off of it to finish the challenge after you pass 75 ft. -- this could happen in mere seconds depending on your speed.

Creativity Rules Ray Barbee Pro Challenge

No comply over the bike racks Three of the easier tasks in the Pro Challenge pantheon. You can look all of these up but the Revert, which just means sliding the LEFT STICK like a Pop Shuvit, a quarter circle flick. Anyway, push twice or just once and JUST as you push again right at the bike rack, flick an ollie for a No Comply. Now head down to the dumpster and set a session marker You dont have to move it at all for this, and the height you have on the platform is pretty decent. But on the...

Air Blaow

Use the mega ramp at the Mega Compound for this. Start your reel on top of the ramp. Go down the ramp and do an ollie off the lip. Immediately grab your board with THE RIGHT HAND GRAB CROUCH BUTTON and press both sticks in the same direction. Come out of this once you've spun 540 -- a bit ahead of landing so you can straighten out. Go up the transition on other side with your mega speed and do a fliptrick on the lip, adding extra spin with BOTH ANALOG STICKS. This will get you both the 360 flip...

Lucass Translation Lucas Puig Pro Challenge

Ugh, you aren't going to like this one. It seems that these slides are a bit more lenient than it would seem. Basically, you want the front of your board sliding, FS NOSE, for instance, then the back, FS TAIL. But really, wood is the important thing here, as grinding trucks will not get you anywhere. Here's what we did to win this about 50 times over . Push down, crouch and ollie up, pressing right in the air on the LEFT STICK, which will land you on your board's nose -HOPEFULLY. You should get...

Sbm Mag Minute

Just set your SM and take these one at a time. Crouch early and don't go too fast. We got two at once by flipping off the sill onto the opposite rail. Easy Gesture Grind the 1st hubba Gesture Grind on round ledge Gesture Grind the last hubba These don't need to be different gestures, so just add the same D-pad tap while grinding these three spots. Take it slow and crouch early. Do the gestures as soon as you land and flip off before you bail. Move any extra objects, like benches, out of the way...
