Version 1.2 - Like I stated in the first version update, I might change the
layout of the guide... and I did. I just felt like all my guides looked too
sloppy, so I've decided to use the layout featured in this guide on the rest
of 'em. Along with that, I'm also working on a more detailed gap listing, which
will be completed shortly. Anyways, enjoy... again.

Final Version (or once was... ) - Final version of the guide. Enjoy, and if you
have anything at all to add to this guide, please don't hesitate to E-Mail me!

Version 1.0 - First version of the guide. The entire guide is pretty much done
with the exception of... absolutely nothing. I'm labeling this version of the
guide 1.0 because I might change the layout later on or something miniscule
like that. Anyways, enjoy!

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Hello and welcome to Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, the astounding sequel to the
best skateboarding game ever made. For those of you who aren't familiar with
the THPS series, it obviously revolves around skateboarding and those who are
best at it, the skaters. THPS 2 however greatly differs from its predecessors
in many ways, as the trick system has been enhanced, and new skaters have been
added to the game's roster as well. With any further adue, I now present to you
my FAQ/Walkthrough for Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2. Enjoy!


===========
What's New?
===========

Well, a lot of things have changed since the first THPS, especially the trick
system and Career Mode. That being said, I've taken the liberty of providing
you with information on all the changes that have been made from this game's
predecessor.


New Manuevers
-------------

Ah yes, the new manuevers. With these, you'll be able to perform HUGE combos in
no time, giving you some insane high scores. To do this, you must utilize the
Manual and Nose Manual to string together grinds and other flatground tricks.
To perform Manuals simply tap Up, Down on the D-Pad for a standard Manual, or
you can press Down, Up on the D-Pad to perform a Nose Manual.

Other than manuals, THPS 2 allows you to ollie out of wallrides and do another
trick, as the first game did not. This is exceptionally useful in the formation
of big combos (along with Manuals).


Bigger and Better Trick System
------------------------------

Probably my favorite part of the game, THPS 2's new and improved trick system
allows you to edit a skater's individual flip, grab, and lip tricks along with
their signature moves. Keep in mind that each skater comes with 3 of their own
signature moves, but you can replace those with whatever you'd like. Also keep
in mind that new tricks cost money, which you'll read more about in the section
below titled "Insane New Career Mode."


Insane New Career Mode!
-----------------------

This game's Career Mode totally blows that of its predecessor out of the water.
In each level throughout Career Mode, not only will you have to complete
objectives, but there are also cash icons strewn about the levels which are
required to beat a level with 100%. As I stated above, you can buy new tricks
upon earning money (you earn money when you complete level objectives) along
with decks and more importantly, stats for your skater.


New Modes
---------

In addition to the simply amazing Career Mode, THPS 2 features some new modes
that will surely appeal to all gamers who play it. The two that in my opinion
are the best are probably the Create-A-Skater and Park Editor modes. In the
Create-A-Skater mode, you can create your very own pro skater and customize
him/her in a plethora of unique and fun ways. The Park Editor on the other hand
allows you to construct your very own skatepark. This mode provides you with a 
ton of categories to help build the biggest and baddest skatepark the world has
ever seen!

In addition to what I've described above, the two player mode in this game has
had a little facelift as well. Aside from the standard Graffiti, Trick Attack, 
and HORSE modes that were featured in the first game's two player mode, THPS 2
features the new "Tag" mode which is pretty self-explanatory.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

If you're wondering why this is only a grind listing, it's because of the fact
that each skater has their own specialized set of moves in terms of grab, flip,
and lip tricks. That being said, here is a universal grind listing that applies
to all skaters:


Triangle: 50-50/Boardslide/Lipslide

Up + Triangle: Nosegrind

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

This section covers every aspect of the game's Career Mode and gives you an in-
depth walkthrough for every goal you will have to complete in the game.


=================================
5.1. The Hangar, Mullet Falls, MT
=================================


High, Pro, & SICK! Scores
-------------------------

Being that this level is pretty much one giant line just waiting to be torn up
Hawk style, you should have absolutely no problem achieving these goals. For
those of you who are too lazy to do easy stuff yourself, a good line to get you
started with those scores would probably be to simply perform very, very big
grind combos on the quarterpipes that border the stage. Oh, and make sure you
manual...a lot.


Collect S-K-A-T-E
-----------------

S: Proceed down the ramp at the start and grind over the halfpipe using the 
   curved rail directly ahead of you to grab the first letter.

K: Once you've grabbed the S, veer slightly left and head towards the K
   hovering just above the quarterpipe along the back wall.

A: Land and head towards the plane located in between the halfpipe and the wall
   that divides the two rooms of the hangar. Launch off of the wing of the
   plane and grab the A hovering in mid-air.

T: Go straight ahead when you land and transfer into the next room to grab the 
   letter T.

E: Veer left and hit the low, wooden quarterpipe positioned in front of the
   garage door to grab the fifth and final letter.


Barrel Hunt
-----------

1: Go straight from the starting point, and when you reach the halfpipe, go
   INSIDE of it and knock over the first set of barrels here.

2: Exit the halfpipe (going towards the airplane), turn right and knock over
   the second set of barrels near the quarterpipe along the back wall.

3: Turn around and skate past the plane to the third set of barrels.

4: For the fourth set of barrels, go straight and transfer into the next room
   with the chopper in it. When you land, hit the barrels next to the divider.

5: The fifth and final set of barrels is located just past the chopper on the 
   deck of the low quarterpipe in front of the garage door.


Collect 5 Pilot Wings
---------------------

1: When you reach the bottom of the giant roll in at the start, turn right and
   head towards the wall. Wallride by using the sloped ramp that forms a 90
   degree angle with the halfpipe, and grind the propeller located INSIDE the
   halfpipe to grab the first set of wings.

2: Turn left once you've reached the other side of the halfpipe and skate
   straight ahead until you reach the wall that divides the two rooms of the
   hangar. Turn left again and grind the long, odd-looking, black ledge in
   between the plane and the wall to grab the second set of wings.

3: Veer left and transfer over the roll in you dropped down into the level on
   to grab the third set of wings about halfway between the two quarterpipes.

4: Land, turn left, and head along the left wall until you reach the divider
   separating the two rooms. Transfer into the room with the chopper, and, when
   you land, stick to the right side of the room and hit the side of the small
   quarterpipe in front of you to grab the fourth set of wings.

5: Go straight ahead and hit the quarterpipe along the back wall to launch
   yourself up to the fifth and final set of pilot wings. 


Nosegrind Over the Pipe
-----------------------

Just as its title states, this goal requires you to fully grind one of the
arced rails from one side of the halfpipe to other while doing a Nosegrind.


Hit 3 Hangtime Gaps
-------------------

1: For the first and easiest hangtime gap, simply air over the halfpipe for the
   "Halfpipe Hangtime" gap.

2: For the second gap, head on over to the airplane and launch off of the
   wooden kicker propped against its tail for the "Wingtip Hangtime" gap.

3: The third (and possibly hardest) gap requires you to air COMPLETELY over the
   chopper, meaning you hit one of the kickers and on the asphalt PAST the
   second ramp.


Find the Secret Tape
--------------------

For this easy-to-achieve tape, you must grind one of the propellers atop the
chopper to open the garage door, thus allowing you to go outside into the snowy
atmosphere of Montana. With this in mind, go outside and ollie just above the
lip of the quarterpipe here to grab the tape. Yay.


100% Goals & Cash
-----------------

$50: You'll find this floating just left of the letter K in S-K-A-T-E.

$50: Head into the room with the helicopter, and grind one of it's propellers.
     After it takes off, you'll be able to grab the 50 that it leaves behind.

$50: Grind the propeller located on the inside of the halfpipe. This will also
     open a secret room.

$50: Located above the quarterpipe furthest from the fan in the secret room
     next to the halfpipe.

$50: Same as above, only this cash icon is located opposite it and a little
     closer to the room's entrance.

$50: This cash icon is floating above the entrance to the secret room. Air from
     one quarterpipe to the other to grab it. 

$100: Go straight ahead once you enter the secret room and hit the quarterpipe
      along the back wall to grab the icon floating high above it.

$100: Head into the room with the chopper and launch yourself off of the small
      quarterpipe positioned against the divider next to the chopper itself.
      Grind the high light fixture above for the cash icon.



=============================
5.2. School II, Southern Cali
=============================


High, Pro, & SICK! Scores
-------------------------

Just like the hangar, this place is a high score haven for all skaters, street
and vert. For all you street skaters, your best bet would be to combo in and
out of every ledge or rail you come across. If you just happen to be a vert
skater, you can use the tiny little "halfpipe" section just around the corner
to your left from the start. I say "halfpipe" because it's not really a true
halfpipe, just two quarterpipes propped up against some walls. 


Collect S-K-A-T-E
-----------------

S: From the start, veer right and make a sharp 90 degree turn just past the 
   planter into a small corridor. Grind the rail in the middle of the corridor
   to grab the letter S.

K: When you've reached the end of the small corridor, ollie up onto the stage
   and air off of the quarterpipe to grab the K hovering just above its lip.

A: Land and go straight until you reach a very small tunnel on your left. Just
   past this tunnel, you'll find a long, kinked rail with the letter A on it.
   Grind this to grab the third letter.

T: Veer right, go past the bike racks, and, against the brick wall, there will
   be a long quarterpipe with the letter T hovering above it. Air off of this
   to snatch the letter.

E: Land and go straight past the two small buildings. The fifth and final
   letter is located just above the small quarterpipe here.


Wallride 5 Bells
----------------

1: At the start of the level, veer right, hit the weird hump in the ground, and
   wallride over the first bell.

2: Make a sharp, 90 degree turn and head down the corridor the S was located
   in. Go around the outside (right) side of the stage and head straight ahead,
   through the very small tunnel to the second bell.

3: Turn left and go past the kinked rail the letter A was on. When you reach
   the end of the rail, proceed down the ramp and make a hard left. Go straight
   along the wall and the third bell will be on your left (hanging on the
   wall).

4: Turn around and head back past the bike racks to the quarterpipe where the
   letter T was located. When you reach that quarterpipe, turn right and go up
   the incline. Ollie off of the top of the incline and wallride over the
   fourth bell.

5: Turn around yet again and head past the giant planter to the raised, curved
   platform with a dumpster on it. Wallride over the dumpster to smash the
   fifth and final bell.


Collect 5 Hall Passes
---------------------

1: Go right of the planter from the start and proceed STRAIGHT AHEAD (not right
   like the other goals) down the long corridor. Grind the ledge here to grab
   the first hall pass.

2: Veer left slightly and head towards the picnic table setup. Hop up onto a 
   picnic table and ollie off of the end of it to grab the second hall pass 
   hovering in mid-air.

3: Head towards the gymnasium and grind the handrail on the right of the 
   handicap ramp that leads to the gym's entrance. Ollie from this rail to the
   next and grab the third hall pass suspended in between the two. 

4: Go straight ahead and make a sharp left at the edge of the gym building. The
   fourth hall pass is located just above the small quarterpipe closest to the
   wall/building.

5: Turn right after grabbing the fourth pass and head over to the giant planter
   just past the curved platform with the dumpster on it. The fifth hall pass is
   stationed at the top of the planter.


Kickflip TC's Roof Gap
----------------------

Have you noticed those two small buildings in the parking lot just past the 
gymnasium? Well even if you haven't, you know where they are now so head on
over to them. Ollie up onto either building's roof using the kickers positioned
in front of each structure. Once on the roof, air over the small gap between
the two buildings while doing a kickflip to complete this goal.


Grind 3 Roll Call Rails
-----------------------

1: At the start of the level, head left of the planter and go straight ahead to
   the long, curved/kinked rail bordering the huge double set of stairs. Grind
   this all the way to the ground level to get the "Roll Call! Nightmare Rail!"
   a.k.a. the first Roll Call! rail.

2: Head to where you found the fourth hall pass was (above the small
   quarterpipe near TC's roof) and use the small kicker near the quarterpipe to
   launch up to/grind the small, kinked rail for the second Roll Call! rail
   titled "Roll Call! Gonz Rail!"

3: Turn right and head up towards the area with the bike racks. Remember the
   rail the letter A was located on in S-K-A-T-E? Well this is the third and 
   final Roll Call! rail you need to grind in order to complete this goal. Oh,
   by the way, the name of the rail is "Roll Call! Opunsezmee Rail!"


Find the Secret Tape
--------------------

Proceed to the open area with the stage in it. Hop up onto the stage and gain
some speed using the quarterpipe. Land and go STRAIGHT AHEAD, crouching along 
the way. When you reach the end of the stage, head down a makeshift ramp
made up of some plywood and Fastplant off of the planter up to the roof. Keep
going straight and use the tiny kicker at the edge of the roof to launch across
the gap to the tape suspended about halfway between the two rooftops.


100% Goals & Cash
-----------------

$50: From the start, turn left and grab this cash icon floating on the other
     side of the spine-like building with quarterpipes on both sides of it.

$50: Turn right at the start and wallride the first bell up to an awning. Grind
     this awning to the cash icon here.

$50: Veer left at the start, and, when you come to the railing, ollie over to
     the big awning all the way to the left against the building. Air from the
     ramp on this awning across the huge gap and grab the cash icon about
     halfway across. 

$50: Go to the right of the planter at the start, and go STRAIGHT AHEAD to the
     small corridor. Proceed down this, turn right at the bottom, and hit the
     quarterpipe here to grab the loot.

$50: Wallride the first bell up to the awning where you found the second cash
     icon. Hop off to your right and proceed forward. Jump through the glass
     and down to the roof below. Line yourself up with the concrete structure
     in front of you and hit the incline to launch yourself onto the rail
     stretching from one roof to the other. Grind over to the other roof and
     stay to the lefft of the big vent. Ollie off of the left side of the roof
     to grab the cash icon floating in mid-air.

$50: From the start, turn right down the corridor the letter S was located in
     S-K-A-T-E. Head straight ahead all the way past the stage to the back
     wall. Turn right and grab the cash icon right in front of the bathroom.

$50: Since you're already here, turn around and head straight, staying close to
     the right wall. Go past the first curb with the planter on the end of it,
     then cut in and hit the second structure just like this and launch
     yourself up to the awning where another $50 bill lies.

$50: If you're still on the awning I've described above, good, stay here for a
     sec. If you're starting from the beginning of the level, head down to the
     stage area. Same thing goes for those who are still on the awning. Drop
     down, and take the ramp up onto the stage. Next, hit the quarterpipe at
     one end of the stage for some speed, then go STRAIGHT AHEAD until you
     reach a makeshift plywood ramp at the opposite end. Go down this then
     launch off of the planter and up to the roof. Air over to the second roof
     and drop down into the "secret" area. Turn left when you land and grind
     along the curved rail to grab the cash icon.

$100: From the start of the level, head to the right of the planter, then turn
      right and head down the small corridor towards the stage. Turn left at
      the bottom and ride along the wall. Ollie up onto one of the low curbs
      here, then, when you see a tiny little opening up and to your left, jump
      up into it. Once in here, turn around completely and hit the little
      incline here up to the awning. Ride along the awning until you reach the
      cash icon.

$100: If you haven't gotten this one already just by trying to get the fifth
      $50 icon I described above, then read the following. Wallride the first
      bell to your right from the start and grind the sloped awning. Hop off of
      the awning to your right, skate straight ahead, and jump through the
      glass window and onto the roof below. Line yourself up with the concrete
      structure with the tall rail attached to it. Launch off of this when you
      reach it and land on the rail, grabbing the cash icon about halfway
      across it.

$100: Follow the directions for the eighth $50 icon walkthrough above to get to
      the secret area, then ollie down the set of stairs, turn right, and air
      off of the quarterpipe here to grab the cash icon floating just above it.



======================
5.3. Marseille, France
======================


General Contest Strategies
--------------------------

Before we get started, you should know a few things. One being you're competing
for $7,500 cash, another being you should add difficulty and variety to your
tricks to impress the judges, and the final thing being you must grab all cash
icons strewn about the level to get 100% completion. Anyways, street skaters
will find this competition rather difficult as the park is pretty much one
giant bowl. With that in mind, make the lips of the bowls here your best
friends and grind, grind, grind. Along with that, you should also utilize the
small rails and planters that are located around the park.


Find All Cash Icons to 100% the Level
-------------------------------------

$50: Turn left at the start and you'll notice a very tall building with some
     flags on it. Use one of the funboxes on either side of the building to air
     up into a wallride on it, then wallie out and grind on the edge of the
     roof to grab the cash icon about halfway across.

$50: First off, veer right at the start of the level and head straight towards
     the planter. Ollie up onto the planter, and look for the fake lamp/tree.
     Behind this fake...thing, there's a little piece of wood holding it up. 
     Run into this to break it and open the secret area. Drop down into the
     hole leading into the area and, when you land, turn around and grab the
     cash icon here.

$50: Head forward and grind the kinked rail directly in front of you.

$50: Hit the rather large quarterpipe along the back of the secret area to grab
     the cash icon floating just above it.

$50: Turn right just past the kinked rail and head up the curved rail that's
     stationed along the sloped path. Grind this and grab the cash icon.

$50: Same thing as above, only grind up curved rail on the left side of the
     secret room.

$100: Air over the fountain in the secret area to grab this one.

$100: Veer left from the start, and head towards the big crossbar suspended in
      between the two bowl areas. Air off of the left quarterpipe with the
      dumpster on its edge, lean forward slightly, and grind on the crossbar.
      You'll find the cash icon about halfway across.



======================
5.4. NY City, New York
======================


High, Pro, & SICK! Scores
-------------------------

In NY City, it'd be an understatement to say a street skater would be happy 
here. With that in mind, all you street-a-holics will find some good lines in 
park near the beginning of the level with the giant rock and the food stand in
it. If vert's your thing however...well you're pretty much out of luck, as
there aren't many quarterpipes in this level. In other words your best bet
would be to simply follow in the footsteps of the street skaters and tear up
all the ledges and rails the city has to offer. If you're still thinking "NO!
Vert skater means VERT SKATER!" then you should stick to the small amount of
quarterpipes strewn about the streets, as well as the giant kickers that
provide you with some pretty good hangtime.


Collect S-K-A-T-E
-----------------

S: At the start, ollie up to the tall wall on your left and grind straight
   through the letter S.

K: Ollie down to the little area with the statue in the center of it and grab
   the K hovering above the huge brick vert wall at the back of the area.

A: As soon as you land, proceed straight ahead and hit the edge of the platform
   the statue is on as if it was a kicker to launch yourself up to the A 
   suspended in mid-air.

T: Head through the small tunnel out of the statue area to the snack stand. 
   Grind the rail to the left of the snack stand (along the water) and grab the
   T that's stationed in the middle of it.

E: Go straight from the rail you were just on and air off of the quarterpipe
   along the wall across the path from the giant rock. The letter E is located
   just above the lip of this quarterpipe.


Ollie the Hydrants
------------------

1: From the start of the level, turn around and make a left down the street
   here. Stay to the left of the street and hit the first hydrant near the end.

2: Turn around and head back to the starting point. Proceed down the street
   past the escalator (which should be on your right). When you reach the end
   of the street, turn left and stay to the right. About halfway down the
   street you'll find the second hydrant on the edge of the sidewalk.

3: Make a 180 degree turn and head back in the other direction down the one 
   street you haven't ventured down yet. Stay to the right and ollie over the
   third and final hydrant at the very end of the street next to a lamp post.


Collect 5 Subway Tokens
-----------------------

1: Enter the park at the start via the gap in between the two walls and grind 
   the railing of the bridge directly in front of you for the first subway
   token.

2: Proceed to the end of the bridge and grind the rail on the left side of the
   path to grab the second token.

3: Continue up the path to the street (watch out for taxis!) and collect the
   third token hovering above the lip of the quarterpipe just across the
   street.

4: Land (with speed) and hit the big kicker directly in front of you to grab
   the token suspended in mid-air.

5: Next, exit the statue area you should be in, turn left at the snack stand
   and head over to the giant rock. Launch off of the giant rock to grab the
   fifth and final token.

NOTE: If you want, you can get the fifth token first (if you find that way
easier of course.


50-50 Joey's Sculpture
----------------------

When you start the level, head across the street and do a 50-50 grind on the
pointy object next to the giant concrete pillar/subway entrance. Pretty simple,
eh?


Grind the Subway Rails
----------------------

For this goal, simply go up the escalator that was previously blocked due to
you not having enough subway tokens. For those of you who have no idea about
what I'm talking about, the escalator is located just across the street from
the start next to "Joey's Sculpture."


Find the Secret Tape
--------------------

First thing's first, make sure you've obtained the five subway tokens before
trying to complete this goal, as the tape is located on the other side of the
brick wall lined with barbed wire just below the subway rails. With that in
mind, climb the escalator and take the subway rails all the way down and over
the wall. As soon as you pass the wall, drop down and take the curved concrete
pathway up to the left. Grind the right side of the path and drop to the long
rail extending from it. Keep grinding on this rail until you see a random
pillar stationed in the middle of nowhere. When you see this, hop over to the
rail stationed on the pillar. Grind this rail to the end, ollie off, and grab
the tape suspended in mid-air. Whew.


100% Goals & Cash
-----------------

$50: You'll find this cash icon floating on the counter of the food stand in
     the park area.

$50: First, collect all 5 subway tokens, then head up the escalator leading to
     the subway. On the way up grab the loot.

$50: Head up the escalator the subway. Grind either one of the subway rails
     until you reach the $50 bill about halfway down.

$50: Take the escalator up to the subway, and, when you reach the top, ollie up
     to your left and grind the wall to the end. Hop off of the wall and onto
     the awning below. The cash icon is about halfway across.

$50: Grind the subway rails all the way down to the "secret" area where you
     went for the secret tape. Follow the same process you went through to get
     the tape, grinding the rails protruding from the right side of the curved
     path, and you should eventually come across a $50 bill on the same rail as
     the secret tape.

$50: Head over to the secret area and turn right when you reach the curved 
     concrete path. Hit the quarterpipe directly in front of you for some
     speed, then land and proceed straight ahead back towards the path. Hit the
     hump on the side of the path to launch yourself up to the $50.

$50: While still in the secret area, grind the rail here around to left until 
     you reach an opening in the wall. Turn in here and hit the quarterpipe to
     grab the final $50 bill hovering above it.

$100: Head down into the little area with "Joey's Sculpture" in it. With speed,
      hit the middle quarterpipe along the back wall here to air up to the $100
      bill. If you find this method too hard, head into one of the small bench
      areas to either side of the area, then wall ride the marble wall and
      wallie up to the ledge, grinding until you reach the cash icon.

$100: At the start of the level, turn right and head towards the quarterpipe in
      front of you. Hit this to grab the cash icon floating above it.

$100: Take the right subway rail about halfway down and you'll notice a cash
      icon floating off to the right. Ollie off of the rails and grab it.

$100: Head into the secret area, and proceed all the way to the back near the
      fence blocking your entrance to the...ocean. Anyways, hit the quarterpipe
      on the right for some speed, then proceed straight ahead when you land
      and ollie off of the bank up to the cash icon floating just above the
      fence.

$250: Head into the center area of the park with the statue in it. Hit the
      giant brick quarterpipe for some speed, then hit the outside edge of the
      statue's platform to launch yourself up and (hopefully) over the statue
      itself to grab the cash icon.



=============================
5.5. Venice Beach, California
=============================


High, Pro, & SICK! Scores
-------------------------

Venice Beach is a place for skaters of all types to get tremendous amounts of
points quickly and easily. Street skaters will find that the railings strewn
about the park, such as the one in front of you at the start, serve as good 
starters to good combos. Vert skaters will have a good ol' time in the huge
bowl area down the slope to your left at the start, as well as the small
halfpipe areas surrounding the first bum in the "Ollie The Magic Bum 5X" goal.


Collect S-K-A-T-E
-----------------

S: At the start, head forward and grind the long handrail just past the little
   rock in the ground all the way down to the roof it connects to. The S is
   here.

K: From the letter S, make a sharp left turn and stay to the left as well.
   You'll soon see the letter K floating about halfway across a small gap.
   Ollie over this gap to grab the letter.

A: Once you've obtained the K, turn left again and jump off of the roof to the
   ground level. See the little halfpipe area here? Gap from one of the
   quartperpipes over the small deck in between this area and the next small
   halfpipe area. As soon as you're in the second little pipe area, ollie out
   of it and onto the roof next to it. Head straight once you've done so and
   grab the A stationed on the curved glass structure here.

T: Grind the glass structure all the way around and go straight. Launch off of
   the vent/kicker directly in front of you and land on the roof across the
   not-so-big gap. Go forward once you've landed safely on the other side and
   hit the vent/quarterpipe the T is hovering over to grab the letter.

E: Turn left when you land and head over to the roof with the odd-looking wire
   structure on it. Ollie down to it and grab the E along the back ledge.


Ollie the Magic Bum 5X
----------------------

1: Remember the little makeshift halfpipe place you found yourself in just
   after obtaining the letter K in S-K-A-T-E? Well, go there from the start and
   ollie the bum.

2: Turn 180 degrees and head back out the way you came in. Stick to the right
   wall and just past the quarterpipe the path turns right and heads down a 
   long path/staircase to a dead end with quarterpipe in it. The second bum is 
   at the bottom.

3: Head back up the way you came and proceed to the starting point. Once there,
   turn left (in the opposite direction of the bowl area) and head along the 
   left side of the path until you reach the third bum right next to the wall.

4: Go straight and turn left around the corner. Stick to the left wall and go
   into the little clearing that you'll come across shortly (there's a
   Bluetorch banner hanging above it) and ollie over the fourth bum along the
   back wall.

5: Turn around and head back to the exact point where you started. The fifth
   and final bum will be found right in front of the path/staircase that leads
   down to the giant bowl area. Ollie over him to complete the goal.


Collect 5 Spray Cans
--------------------

1: At the start, make a sharp left turn and head down the path to the large 
   wooden bowl area. You should see the first spray can directly in front of
   you. Use the bowl to launch yourself up to it.

2: Head back to the starting point and follow the left wall all the way around
   past the octagonal platform down to the pit where you ollied the second bum.
   Grab the second can here then head back up the path you came down and travel
   towards the starting point.

3: Just before you reach the starting point you'll notice two wooden, long
   funboxes stacked up next to the fence. The second spray can is located here.

4: Proceed left (in the opposite direction of the first spray can) and stay to
   the right of the path. When you reach a quarterpipe at the end, air off of
   it and grab the fourth can hovering above it.

5: Land, make a sharp right turn, and ollie over the wall. Stay to the right
   and head past the clearing where you ollied the fourth bum. Near the end of 
   this path there's a quarterpipe smack dab in the middle of it. Gap from this
   quarterpipe to the one on its left and grab the last spray can about halfway
   between the two.

 
Tailslide Venice Ledge
----------------------

Head straight from the starting point, sticking close to the left wall. Travel
around the octagonal platform and head down the long staircase to the pit with
a quarterpipe and a trash can in it. Hit the quarterpipe and hold up on the
D-Pad to propel yourself up and over the wall and onto the other side. Turn
left when you land in front of the planter (which you should), and follow it
around to the low wall with the words "The Ledge" tatooed on it, along with an
arrow pointing to the infamous Venice Ledge. Tailslide down the waxed-up ledge
to complete the goal. Easy, wasn't it?


Hit 4 VB Transfers
------------------

1: From the start, make a sharp right turn and head down the path, sticking to
   right wall. Gain A LOT of speed by grinding along the low wall (on your
   right) and jumping off just before the quarter pipe at the end of the path.
   Hit the ramp at an angle and transfer all the way over the small quarterpipe
   in between two planters and land on the ramp on the other side for the "VB!
   Huge Transfer!!!"

2: Turn right when you land and head towards the place where you obtained the
   fifth spray can. Gap in between the two quarterpipes for the "West Side
   Transfer," along with some speed, and when you land hit the pipe directly in
   front of you at an angle so you sail over the small portion of roof and land
   on the other side of it for the "VB! Pit Transfer."

3: Turn left and head along the right wall to the little halfpipe area where
   you ollied the first bum. Gap from one quarterpipe over the SMALL part of
   the wall to the other makeshift halfpipe area for the "VB! Skinny Transfer." 

4: Head over to the pit with the long staircase and the quarterpipe in it. Just
   like the Venice Ledge goal, air over the wall and land in front of the
   planter on the other side. Follow the planter around and hit the pipe on
   your left against the wall, airing over the ledge and landing on the
   quarterpipe there for the "VB! Ledge Transfer."


Find the Secret Tape
--------------------

Before we get started I must warn you this tape is slightly frustrating to get,
so don't give up if you can't get it on your first try. Anyways, get up to the
roof where you found the letter T anyway you can, and take note of the tape
hovering just in front of the long cable that's suspended above the main area
of the level with all the tables and such. Gain a TREMENDOUS amount of speed
off of either one of the vents/quarterpipes here and do a Boneless off of the
kicker vent thing to reach the tape. Remember what I said at the start and have
some patience, all you need is some speed and you'll have the tape in no time.


100% Goals & Cash
-----------------

$50: Turn right at the start and stick close to the right wall. The cash icon
     will be floating atop the fence here.

$50: Pretty much in the same location as the first, except this icon is located
     on the next fence down.

$50: Just before you reach the fourth spray can in the "Collect 5 Spray Cans"
     objective, stay to the right of the path and grab the $50 stationed on top
     of the fence here.

$100: Head straight from the start, down the tiny little set of stairs, and 
      stick to the left wall. Go around the octagonal platform and grind down
      the long handrail leading to the area where you ollied the second bum for
      the $100 bill.

$100: Grind along the fence directly in front of you at the start to the roof
      where you obtained the letter S in S-K-A-T-E. Stick to the right side of
      the roof, and, when you reach a cable suspended across the gap in roof,
      grind on it to grab the cash icon about halfway down.

$100: Just past the tiny gap in the roof where the S in S-K-A-T-E was located,
      you'll see a curved vent. Grind along this to grab the cash icon.

$100: Air over the "VB! Pit Transfer," a.k.a. the second VB transfer, and grab
      the $100 about halfway across the gap.

$100: Head over to the makeshift halfpipe area where you located and ollied the
      first bum. Go into the pipe and, instead of airing over the "VB! Skinny
      Transfer," air over the bigger/fatter part instead for the the cash icon.

$100: You'll find this cash icon positioned on top of Venice Ledge. To get
      here, simply, head down into the pit where you found the second bum and
      launch forward off of the quarterpipe over the wall and into the "secret"
      area.

$250: First, head left from the start and down into the giant bowl area. Turn
      right as soon as you're inside of it and head towards the section
      straight ahead. Hit this part of the bowl and hold up on the D-Pad to
      launch yourself up to the roof with the odd-looking wire structure on it.
      Get some speed off of the makeshift metal quarterpipe bordering this part
      of the roof and grind up one of the sloped wires up to the flat one at
      the top. The $250 bill is located here.

$250: There are two ways of going about getting this cash icon, but I'll
      explain the easier way to you. Head over to the curved vent just past the
      tiny gap in the roof where you found the S in S-K-A-T-E. At the end of
      the curved vent, you'll notice a vent/quarterpipe to the left. Air off of
      this and over to the makeshift halfpipe area that's home to the first
      bum. About halfway across the absolutely huge gap, you'll find the $250.

$250: Grind the fence directly in front of you at the start of the level up to
      the roof. Go to the edge of the roof, turn around, and hit the
      vent/kicker off to the right to (hopefully) launch yourself over the
      abstract statue thing, which is home to the final cash icon of the level.



=========================
5.6. Skatestreet, Ventura
=========================


General Contest Strategies
--------------------------

Ah, yes, Skatestreet, my favorite competition! I say this because it's a great
place for both street and vert skaters. If you're a street skater, you'll
notice that the nice little setup in the center of the park is right up your
alley. For all you vert skaters out there, turn 180 degrees at the start and
you'll notice a giant bowl and a halfpipe behind it.


Find All Cash Icons to 100% the Level
-------------------------------------

$50: Turn left at the start of the level and head into the huge halfpipe. Once
     in the pipe, you'll notice a D-shaped rail protruding out from each of its
     lips. Grind along this D-shaped rail to grab the $50.

$50: Head over to the halfpipe and launch yourself up and onto the bridge
     behind it. Proceed to the end of the bridge and turn right once you've
     done so. You'll find the cash icon floating on the rail to your right.

$100: Proceed down the rollin at the start, veer right, and head towards the
      funbox. Skate up to the top of the funbox and grind the rail directly in
      front of you (against the wall) to the left for the $100 icon.

$100: Head straight from the start and over to the huge quarterpipe. Get up 
      onto the deck of the quarterpipe and head left. Ollie over the low fence
      at the edge of the quarterpipe and grind the rail suspended from the
      ceiling to grab the cash icon.

$100: Skate on over to the bridge behind the huge halfpipe to your left at the
      start. Once there, you should see a $100 bill floating off to the left in
      mid-air. Hop over the railing to grab the cash icon.

$100: Go outside and into "Van Secret Area". Air over the van using either one 
      of the kickers and grab the $100 hovering just above its roof.

$250: From the start of the level, veer right and head towards the giant 
      quarterpipe with a plethora of stickers on it. Hit the hump leading into
      this giant quarterpipe and launch yourself up to the $250 bill hovering
      in mid-air.

$250: Head out into the "Rail Secret Area," and, once outside, turn right and
      gap in between the two quarterpipes along the wall to grab the $250.



===============================
5.7. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
===============================


High, Pro & SICK! Scores
------------------------

Street skaters can find a great line by going straight from the starting point
and heading left of the funbox, grinding all the benches and planters here. You
can also use the ledges surrounding the fountain as well as the other planters
positioned throughout the level to help you out with some truly sick combos.
Vert skaters will find themselves at home in the skatepark section of the
level, as there are a few bowls along with a huge halfpipe.


Collect S-K-A-T-E
-----------------

S: From the start of the level, turn right and head northeast to the giant
   planter on the left of the green kicker. Ollie up onto the planter and
   continue forward on the grass until you reach the S hovering just past the
   end of it.

K: When you land, veer left and head towards the building with the blue awning.
   Use one of the curved ramp structures to launch yourself up to this awning 
   and the letter K stationed here.

A: Hop off the awning and you should land right in front of a small planter
   with the letter A positioned on the ledge directly in front of you.

T: From the A, head straight and ollie up the small set of stairs. When you
   reach a handicap ramp on the right side of the path just past the stairs, go
   up it and ollie off of the top of it to the left to grab the T hovering in
   mid-air.

E: Land and veer left towards the somewhat tall planter ledge. Wallride to get
   up here if you simply can't ollie or boneless that high, then grind the
   ledge and ollie off of the end of it to snatch the fifth and final letter.


Drain the Fountain
------------------

Just like the secret tape in Venice Beach, this goal is rather frustrating, so
have patience when trying this. First, make sure your skater is well-equipped
for the challenge (good ollie, air, and hang time). Alright, now, turn right at
the start and gap in between the two kickers in front of you for some speed.
When you land go straight ahead and grind the rail down the set of stairs. At
the bottom of the stairs, hit the planter ledge as if it were a kicker and
launch yourself up to the balcony here. Hit the valve once you're up here to
drain the fountain. If you don't get this the first time, don't get mad, just
have patience and keep trying, you'll eventually get it.

NOTE: For an easier method of draining the fountain, you can use the cable that
the secret tape is stationed on (see "Find The Secret Tape" below). Simply
grind this all the way to the brick building at the other end, then jump off
onto the high part of the roof, then drop down to the balcony where the valves
are. Just make sure your rail balancing skills are pretty high. 


Collect 5 Bells
---------------

1: At the start, turn right and hit the green kicker just past the weird spine
   thing to obtain the first bell.

2: Proceed forward and down the set of stairs. At the bottom, turn left and 
   travel along the left wall. When you reach the end of the wall, fastplant or
   wallie (wallride then ollie out of it) up to the second bell.

3: Head straight towards the blue awning where the letter K was located in
   S-K-A-T-E and hit one of the curved ramp structures to launch yourself up to
   the third bell.

4: When you land, veer left and head towards the giant planter with the cable
   extending from one of its ledges. Ollie up the tiny set of stairs right next
   to the fountain, turn around, and wallride along the left wall to grab the
   fourth bell.

5: Turn left and head up the small set of stairs. Make another left at the top
   and ollie up another small set of stairs here. On the right side of the path
   just past a light post you'll find the fifth and final bell stationed on the
   ledge of a planter. 


Bluntslide the Awning
---------------------

Remember the blue awning you've become familiar with in some past objectives?
Well head on over to that and hit one of the curved concrete ramp things just
below it to launch yourself up to it. Bluntslide most of it to complete the
goal. If you don't know where the awning is, simply enter the fountain area and
follow along the right side of it until you reach the awning.

NOTE: In order to successfully complete the goal, you must get the "Awning
Grind" gap while doing it, or else your attempt won't count.


Liptrick 4 Skatepark Lips
-------------------------

If you haven't done so already, you must first break down the fence that
borders the skatepark. To do this, veer slightly left and head past the giant
funbox. Keep going straight until you reach a small set of stairs. Ollie down
these and head up the handicap ramp in front of you. When you reach the top,
you'll see a cable extending from the guardrail. Grind up this (you don't have
to go very far), and when you hop off you'll see the entire fence collapse,
thus opening the park for you to skate. Now, here are the 4 lips you must trick
on to complete this goal:

1: First, head into the main skatepark area using the kicker that launches you
   over the low wall belonging to one of the bowls. Once you're inside, turn
   180 degrees and do a lip trick on the bowl lip to your right for the 
   "Phillyside Big Bowl Lip."

2: Land and turn approximately 90 degrees to your right and head over to the
   bowl directly in front of you. Lip trick on this for the "Phillyside Mid
   Bowl Lip."

3: Turn right again and head towards the back of the park. Go past the 4 blue
   humps in the ground and lip trick off of the bowl in front of you for the
   "Phillyside New Bowl Lip."

4: For the fourth and final skatepark lip, exit the part of the park you're in
   via the bowl you just tricked on, and head into the halfpipe. Lip trick on
   either side of the halfpipe for the "Phillyside HP Lip" and completion of 
   this goal.


Find the Secret Tape
--------------------

For this tape, head straight from the starting point and go past the giant
funbox. Just before you reach the small set of stairs, ollie up onto the
planter on your right. Veer right and grind the cable extending from the corner
of the planter. You'll find the secret tape about halfway down. If you run out
of speed, you can just keep jumping and grinding (this helps maintain speed),
just make sure you keep your balance in the process.


100% Goals & Cash
-----------------

$50: Drain the fountain, and two $50 bills will be chillin' inside of it. There
     isn't a right or wrong way to get the two cash icons obviously, so grab
     one then the other.

$50: The second cash icon inside the drained fountain.

$50: Veer left from the start and go straight past the giant funbox until you
     reach the small set of stairs. See the handicap ramp with the light blue
     railing on it? Proceed up this ramp and, at the top, you'll see a wire
     connected to the corner of the railing. Grind this wire up to the $50.

$50: Proceed straight from the start past the funbox, and, just before you
     reach the small set of stairs, hop up onto the giant planter on your
     right. Head over to the right corner of this and you'll see the $50
     floating in front of you.

$100: Veer right at the start of the level and go around the fountain to the
      other side. Hit the quarterpipe stationed all by itself in the corner (to
      the left of the blue awning) for some speed, go straight ahead when you
      land and hit the small kicker to launch yourself up to the $100.

$100: First, head to the balcony where the valves to drain the fountain are
      located. Grind the edge of the balcony towards the cable on which the
      secret tape is/was perched upon, then ollie off to grab the cash icon
      floating in front of you.

$100: Head into the skatepark and over to the area with the blue humps. Just
      opposite the humps there's a pillar. Air off of the bottom of the pillar
      as if it was a quarterpipe to grab the cash icon.

$250: This cash icon is located above one of the lips on the halfpipe (inside
      the skatepark).

$250: In between the halfpipe and the main skatepark, you'll find a $250 bill
      hovering in mid-air. Air from either area over to the other to grab the
      cash icon.

$250: Head on over to the skatepark and, when you're there, proceed to the blue
      quarterpipe and air off of the bowl next to it to grab this cash icon.

$250: Launch up to the balcony and you should be able to grab this cash icon
      along the way.

$250: Get up to the small portion of roof just above the balcony, either by
      using the cable the secret tape is/was perched on, or by simply
      wallriding up there from the balcony itself. Once there, drop off of the
      right side and grind the telephone wire to grab the $250 bill here.

$250: You'll find this cash icon on the same long cable the secret tape is
      found on.



=========================
5.8. The Bullring, Mexico
=========================


General Contest Strategies
--------------------------

Before we get started I must warn you, this contest is very, very annoying.
Just thought I'd let you know. Anyways, if you're a street skater, your best
bet would probably be to utilize the perimeter of the bullring, which consists
mostly of one long quarterpipe. You can perform some huge grind/flip combos on
this, then hop off real quick and hit a nearby quarterpipe for some variety and
a very good combo. If you're a vert skater however, this contest will prove
itself to be your best friend as you drop into a gigantic halfpipe at the start
of each run. On top of that, the halfpipe has a loop and there's quarterpipes
strewn about almost every square inch of the bullring. Not bad, eh?


Find All Cash Icons to 100% the Level 
-------------------------------------

$250: Head over to the narrow area bordering the level where the bull is
      running in circles. Skate through a green pile of...poo (gotta keep this
      thing G-rated, hehe) to get a $250 bill.

$250: Same as above, just hit a different pile of poo.

$250: Yet another cash icon found in a green pile of bull feces.

$250: The fourth and final feces icon can be found in the remaining green pile
      of poo you haven't skated through yet.

$250: At the start of the level, drop into the rather huge halfpipe using the
      rollin, then head right and launch yourself up to the stands. Hit one of
      the quarterpipes that are positioned in front of a large kicker to launch
      yourself up to a high wire. Grind along this for the $250.

$250: Keep grinding along the same rail you're on for another $250 bill.

$250: Veer left after dropping into the halfpipe at the start and hit the odd
      ramp at the corner of the pipe. Launch off of this and up to the high
      wire to collect the $250 bill here.

$250: Same as above, only grind the wire on the other side of the one you were
      just on.

$250: Proceed down the rollin at the start of the level, then head right and
      out of the halfpipe. Keep skating and you'll eventually come to an area
      with a quarterpipe and a vert wall. Get some huge air on the quarterpipe
      here and grind the banner high above it to obtain the $250 bill.

$250: From the start of the level, drop in, turn left, and head past the loop. 
      Next, head to the quarterpipe located just past the humps. Get some
      massive air off of this quarterpipe and grind the banner above it to grab
      the final cash icon.

bike racks. Grind one, then ollie over to the next and grind along it.

pole to the large planter in front of you and grind the low curb in front of
it.


Bank 2 Ledge
