A clear strategy guide for sick mode and tips for normal mode. (Sick mode just
makes it harder, don't worry.) Codes, Secrets, and tips.

= I.V. Easy way of finding your Troubles                       =
================================================================

Sick of scrolling? Well for window users only (I think) hold CTRL then tap "F"
and it should show find. Put the chapter name it should show the next time its
shown. Thats an easier way of finding the chapter.

================================================================
= I.VI. How to use if you are using a different console        =
================================================================

I was going to write controller comparisons, but instead I decided for tricks
I was just going to put FLIP or GRIND or GRAB. For controls off your board, I
will say OB-GRAB, for Off Board Grab. And OB = Off Board. Remember that.

================================================================
= I.VII. Which version is right for you?                       =
================================================================

Well here are the specs. Do by the following: Most comfortable controller for
YOU. Do you like online play? Anyways, here are the exact specs.

PlayStation 2 = Online Play, Alot of people have the PS2.

Gamecube = Said to have best controls for most people, nice graphics. (I have
           GC version.)

XBox = EXCELLENT graphics, customize your soundtrack. Especially since people
       said the soundtrack isn't as good as before.)

****************************************************************

PART 1

What you need to do is jump. Hold the the OB-GRAB button in the air. You
should always do this. because most of the times not all your jumps are easy.
Grab the icon. Now go jump again and OB-GRAB. Climb up and then turn (from the
direction you jumped) left. Jump and continue, just run straight and jump and
you should eventually get the rest.

PART 2

Follow the directions, I feel I do not need to tell you how, because they tell
you.

****************************************************************
* Walk Charles                                                 *
****************************************************************

Everyone new usually dislikes Charles. If you can't seem to get it. Follow
this little tip. Don't look at the dog. He just will get you lost. Stare at
your balance meter. Make sure it stays in the middle. The sudden movements
in Charles can mess you up, make sure you look at the balance meter.

Follow the simple path of cones. Use BRAKE (not HANDBRAKE) at turns to make
quick turns at high speeds. You should have no trouble with this since they
give you excessive time. Good luck.

Go straight and grind the white cement part. Thats 2/8. Ollie while going
down the street (3/8) Grind the the ledge on the walkway on the building ahead
(4/8) Then the pipe. (6 or 7/8) Then you should find the rest like in front of
you.

****************************************************************

Change your tricks to "Indy 900" 11,000/13,200 (normal/switch stance). Now in
the halp pipe. Boneless off into the air, flip trick, then grab, and spin.
Then revert. You should have special now. You should have atleast 3,000 x4
mutiplier. Then... the climax... Indy 900. Thats a whoppin' total of (with a
boneless) 16,600 x5. Revert, flip, short grab, then grind. You should almost
have 150,000. If Muska moves, you have a Quarter Pipe. Here you should be
done.

PART 1

Grind the thing, then the jump the the gate, then the thing in the middle of
the street. Don't stop there. Manual or even jump far enough to the police
things and grind it. Then you will see the rest of the combo items to grind.

PART 2

Grind the ledge and go into the manual. Wait till you see the flashing curb.
Jump onto the flashing ledge. Stay on, until you reach the street area. Then

PAST the house and walk where you spine the dumpsters. Walk inbetween or past
the other homes and you should see the homes. But when your at the dumpsters

Ride down the street until you come to the first house to the right. Climb up

If your bad at grinding you can just go around once. Jump off and do it again.
If your experienced you can probably grind the thing in one grind. Do whatever
you can. Good luck.

****************************************************************

140,000 is alot. But all you got to do is grind the side all the way till the
end. Jump off and go to the little quarter pipe. Get off your board in mid air
and get back on in mid air onto the wire. The purpose of this when your off
the board you have more control. Now you should go left or right. If you go
left. You can simply grind straight through into an area with a Quarter pipe.
Ta da!!! And bust mad tricks. Now if you went left. Your on a platform. You
can go to the ledge and grind and land into the same area of the left wire
took you.

****************************************************************
* Catch Ollie's House                                          *
****************************************************************

Since his house moves it's hard. Well jump back and forth. Stay on the track
at all times. You will hit his "house" sooner or later on the train track.
Sometimes you will get lucky and they will be aligned.

Stay behind the SUV at all times. You may be far behind, but thats all you
need. Then at a point. You will have to drive. Now this is annoying and easy.
Just use the BRAKE button alot for sharp turns.

The waterfront area is good for this score, but you have to becareful if you
skate the high line areas over water. Its almost death. Grind benches from
reverts from the vert. Mix-up for combos.

****************************************************************
* Hold Grind Combos                                            *
****************************************************************

Go slow and tap (don't hold if you have a habit) don't jump to the next. You
will most likely miss the bench. Since your at speed, you will jump
automatically. Good luck!

Purse Item 1: Grind the ledge and at the end you will fly up. Grind it.

Purse Item 2: Go straight from "Purse Item 1" and you will see a tower near
              the "$" building. Make sure your straight and boneless up and
              then LIP trick it.

Purse Item 3: Then at the intersection (from coming from "Purse Item 2") you
              will see a wall like struction, but works like a quarter pipe.
              Get air to get it.

Purse Item 4: Go into the pool (turning left from "PI 3" at the intersection)
              and lip or grind the banner at the pool. Its noticable.

Purse Item 5: Facing left from the water, go down the street till you see
              a dumpster. Grind it and at the end it will launch you to "PI 5"

Purse Item 6: Turn left and on a glass building you should see it. Climb up
              and grab it!

Purse Item 7: Finally... Now, when you were going to "PI 6", you saw you could
              of turned left. Well turn left and its a small street. Go up the
              quarter pipe on the left side in an angle and grind the rail.

Pyramid Ledges: 5,000? SIMPLE. Flatland trick them or grind.

78 Water: Grind or Flatland. 10,000 is nothing.

Waterfront: Grind straight ahead. Not enough? Do a special in the pools to the
            the left.

Memorial: Trick it out with the vert. Lose speed? Grind from revert, then jump
          in at angle and you got your speed back.

Brooklyn Banks: Hardest, but easy. Grind the cars and then jump and grind the
                whole ledge. Jump and grind the sub ledge. Should be 40,000.

Follow the arrows. The tricky ones are 3 and 6. once you 180 or 360 from the

grind or you will pass them. Just tap down and keep slow staying behind.

****************************************************************

****************************************************************

The street isn't long enough, so turn at the second right. Then a right. Then
at the second right. Then at the second right again, turn. I know its
confusing. Just take a full drive around Manhattan. Once the car temperature
reaches 300, go to the waterfront and ride off a ramp.

I can't help you here, but I can say this. Grind things for speed. Want to
save 2 seconds? Do the 180 turn (Down, Down R on Gamecube version) when you
need to turn really quick. Don't bail. If so, restart. You need time for this.

****************************************************************

Do the tricks Eric asks you. Do them one at a time and turn quickly. Try not
to bail. This is fairly simple, but try not to bail. Don't do more then two
tricks. And make sure you GAP the Taxi FULLY.

GRINDING. Remember that. That is your ULTIMATE speed move, and travel move.
GRAB/FLIP in AIR. Your ULTIMATE point ranker. REVERT. Your ULTIMATE way of
linking air tricks. Always go big, never little. Use this diagram to help.

================================================================

New Jersey = Under the bridge on a ledge. You can just walk there.

Manhattan = On a billboard on the right side of town. You should see a ladder
            up to it. Climb it up on the ladder to the left and jump it.

Tampa = On the right side of town, there are two vert ramps against a
        building.  Skitch a car and you will get mad air off them. Transfer
        them, and you should get it in mid-air.

San Diego = Go to the Concert Area (where you do the grind goal for the kid)
            and get on the roof of that area. and there is a window in the
            center area. Jump through it. It should be right in there.

Hawaii = On the hotel roof (the one where one of the pools in filled with
         water before completeing a certain goal) there should be rail you can
         jump down and grind. Its not easy to spot, because of the ledge, but
         very easy to obtain.

Vancouver = Over the glass dome (the side where Bob gives you a trick slot)
            which seems impossible, but if you skitch a car and spine the
            glass bus station thing you will ramp off into the air and grab
            the tape if aimed correctly.

Slam City Jam = Get air on the main Quarter Pipe and grind the SPOT LIGHTS.
                You could also grab them. Well as you walk or grind, go to the
                box screen thing and you will go through it. There will be a
                tape.

Moscow = Its near the tall palace place. St. Basil's. Go there and climb up
         the building. You will see its dang near impossible at a certain
         point. Well if you double jump onto the slanted area. Before you fall
         double jump  pushing against the wall and climb up. You can grind
         your way up, but its more simple.

Hotter Than Hell = Its on a catwalk. You can get up there by getting air in
                   the corner quarter pipes and you can walk or grab the ledge
                   and pull up. Then jump to the other ones and then get speed
                   and grab the tape in mid-air.

School II = The level is in New Jersey in the train station. Its on a transfer
            gap in the middle on the left side of the station. Get BIG air and
            you shall obtain it.

Venice = The level is in Hawaii. From where the default start is. Go onto the
         main road. Facing the entrance of the mini shopping place. Go right.
         Follow the street and one you turn left, after your right, go
         straight. You should see a small Tiki statue. Jump into it. Don't
         jump near it. Jump INTO it. And you should go into this Hell like
         world. Jump at the end of the tunnel and if your lucky you will grab
         it.

Hangar = Its quite confusing. Its in Moscow.
