Get a fast sport car like a cheeta or an inferno, if you can't find one of those cars a taxi works too. Then get to the bridge to the third island. At the top,in the middle, you can get on top of the thing in the middle that sticks up. (it is where it gets real high) Then start to go down it not too fast so that you don't fly off and die.(during going down the ramp push up on the analog stick) Once you get near the end push down and fly over the gap.(make sure you land to the side od the middle thing or you won't make it because you barely make it anyway) Hope you have fun on this island.
