    =======================================
    
    II. TRACKS
    In Wave Race you have four(4) skiers. They are listed below.
    
     1. R.Hayami -  He's my favorite racer in  the game. Tighten his grip and
                    loosen his handling  and he'll swerve  less. He also gets
                    lots of air off  jumps. But he  doesn't pull  of moves as
                    good as M.Jeter.
     2. A.Stewart - She  gets a  good speed  burst.  Other then  that,  she's
                    worthless.
     3. M.Jeter  -  The best at stunts. He can do stunts perfectly that other
                    racers have trouble  with Also good at  racing if there's
                    no waves.
     4. D.Marier -  I never use this guy so I don't know what to say. He does
                    have a terrible speed burst.
    
    A. Dolphin Park
      Used to warm up for normal  championship mode, also a stunt track. Many
      of the games codes are in this track.
    
    B. Sunny Beach
      The easiest track in  the game. If you get 3rd  or 4th place, shame  on
      you.
    
    C. Sunset Bay
      Another day  of Wave Race  comes to an  end. But not  before we race on
      this track!  This also  is an  easy track.  You'll need  those 7 points
      here!
    
    D. Drake Lake
      Early in the morning  while a light fog  is out the racers are ready to
      gear up for another race. This track is pretty challenging. The hardest
      thing here is trying to steer  through the stakes. If you get 1st place
      on these 3  tracks you'll  almost have  enough points  to beat Twilight
      City!
    
    E. Marine Fortress
      There  are a couple  shortcuts in here.  At the beginning  try pressing
      down on the control  stick to get air time off those waves to jump over
      the stone pillar there.  Also in hard and expert  on the 2nd lap a wall
      will open  up making a  shortcut. This  also happens in reverse but you
      gotta go  the other way.  If you get  1st place on  these 4 tracks, you
      almost have enough points to beat Glacier Coast!
    
    F. Port Blue
      Not too hard. Can get a little  confusing on reverse mode. There is one
      shortcut where you have to steer through a narrow passage. On hard this
      is an option(I recommend you skip it), and on expert and reverse it's a
      necessity.
    
    G. Twilight City
      A day of racing is over, but  the racers are still racing when the moon
      is out. Can be pretty hard for the first-timer, but becomes pretty easy
      one you get the  hang of it.  There's a shortcut  at the beginning when
      you  jump  over  a  wall  at  the  beginning.  On  expert  you  need to
      dive underneath. Look below to see how to dive.
    
    H. Glacier Coast
      Racing around in  icy waters with just a  diver suit on, but  still can
      perform at top  notch in this track.  Lotta ice ramps and  ice balls to
      get in your way. Also a big sheet of  ice that can take you from 1st to
      4th if your not careful.
    
    I. Southern Island
      After getting through the tough Glacier Coast and Twilight City tracks,
      you come to a fairly  easy track. There are two(2)  shortcuts here. The
      first one is  when you jump  off a ramp over a  ship. The second one is
      jumping on a ramp  and diving underneath the bridge.  On the second lap
      you can just ski under the bridge.
    
    =======================================
    
    III. STUNTS
    There are many stunts that can be done in Wave Race.
    
    A. Regular Stunts
     1. Handstand     -     Release  throttle  then press  up on the  control
                            stick, then down and hold.
     2. Ride Backwards  -   Rotate the control stick clockwise and hold down.
     3. Ride Standing   -   Rotate  the control  stick  counterclockwise  and
                            hold up.
     4. Backwards Spin   -  Rotate the control stick clockwise and hold up.
     5. Stand w/ Backflip - Rotate  the control  stick  counterclockwise  and
                            hold down.
    
    B. Ramp Stunts
     1. No hands      -     In the air press A and the control stick back and
                            forth.
     2. Back Flip     -     Press up  on the  control stick  on the ramp  and
                            down when you get off.
     3. Barrel Row     -    Press left  on ramp and  right when  you get off.
                            Switch the direction do a counterclockwise roll.
     4. Dive        -       Press down on the ramp and up when you get off.
     5. Double Flip    -    Same as a flip but hold down longer.
     6. Helicopter Flip  -  Press left-up  or right-up  on ramp and down when
                            you get off.
     7. Helicopter Double - Hold down  longer to  do an extra  flip. This the
        Flip                most points you can get on a stunt.
     8. Triple Flip    -    This stunt sent in by LtHunter1@aol.com. It seems
                            you can  only do this  stunt at Glacier  Coast on
                            the big  ramp  there and  can only  be  done with
                            M. Jeter. You also need alot of speed. I've never
                            done this but I don't doubt it can't be done.
     9. Helicopter Triple - If you  can do a  triple flip  then you  can do a
        Flip                helicopter triple flip =).
    
    =======================================
    
    IV. SECRETS & CODES
    
     1. Ride the Dolphin
       The hardest code in the game.  With this code you'll be able to ride a
       dolphin in the warm-up of normal championship. To access this you need
       to go to Dolphin Park  in Stunt Mode. Go through  all the rings and do
       these stunts in no particular order:
       -Handstand
       -Backwards Spin
       -Stand w/ Backflip
       -Barrel Roll both directions
       -Back Flip(once)
       -Dive
       At the end you should hear dolphin noises. And in the beginning screen
       you  should  see racers  riding  dolphins. To ride  the dolphin go  to
       Championship,  select  normal,  select  warm-up,  and  while  you  are
       selecting your racer, hold down on the stick or pad.
    
     2. Baby Dolphins & a Whale.
       In warm-up,  follow the dolphin.  Do whatever he does  on the ramp for
       two(2) laps.  Then  the  dolphin  should  jump over  a bridge.  A baby
       dolphin should  be following  you. Do this  for thirty(30)  laps and a
       whale should be following you.
    
     3. Mega Points on Stunt Mode.
       Whenever you do a stunt, press  start before you land. You should hear
       the announcer say  something.  Do this for ever stunt you do. You will
       get a ton of points at the end.
    
     4. Unlock Twilight City Track.
       Beat it on Hard Championship Mode.
    
     5. Unlock Glacier Coast Track.
       Beat it on Expert Championship Mode.
    
     6. Unlock Reverse Mode.
       Get 1st place on expert mode.
    
     7. Change Racer Colors.
       Hold up on the stick as you choose your racer.
    
    =======================================
    
    V. Options
    
     1. Change Names
       Change the racers names instead of using the defaults.
    
     2. View Records
       Look over  the records  to show  your "I'll  believe it when I see it"
       friend that doesn't believe your 3000 point record at Glacier Coast.
    
     3. Change Conditions
       Change the  conditions for  the  track's  difficulty.  You can  change
       conditions  of  hard   and  expert  modes  until   you  beat  them  at
       championship.
    
     4. Audio
       Change the audio settings.
    
     5. Erase Course Records
       Erase the course records, I don't  understand why you would want to do
       that though.
    
     6. Save and Load
       Save the records  to your  Memory Card,  so you can  load them back if
       your little sister  doesn't know  what she's doing.  It takes a couple
       pages.
