1.0| Introduction [intro00]
============================
I started to write this FAQ because I was bored. This is my first FAQ and
I still don't really know why I write this... Maybe because I enjoy
playing THPS2 so much!


Ok, please DON'T e-mail me anything about typos and suggestions or
anything. If you need to contact me about it, don't do it!
The only e-mail I will be glad to recieve is e-mail where you ask
if you can post my FAQ on your webpage.

skateboarding, Tony makes his home in his native SoCal.

Vert

Bio:

When Rune was 11 years old a friend brought a skateboard to his home in 
Copenhagen, Denmark. Later, a skateboard brought Rune to his new home in

Here you'll find the all-terrain terrorist sessioning pools and streets.

2.6| Eric Koston
=================

Stance:

Goofy

Style:

Street

Bio:

Who do you want to be today? Think Koston, because he rides like anybody and 
nobody else.  He'll bust any pro's signature trick with uncanny similarity 
then transition into the eponymous K-Grind. Besides this move bearing his 
name, Eric's famous for clowning around while making challenging switch and 
nollie rides look like a joke.
