Hints and Tips by Anonymous

Speed Burst
Try to press and hold down the gas button right before the announcer
says, "Go!" If you are successful,
you will immediately increase your top speed. It can be increased
anywhere from one arrow to
maximum power if you get it right.
Mega Points for Stunts
In stunt mode, right after you do a stunt and the announcer is about
to say something,
pause the game. If you do it right, all sounds should stop except the
announcer's voice,
and you'll get a great deal of points even for simple stunts. 
New Colors
When you are selecting your jet ski, highlight any character, and hold
up on the analog stick. The
character and jetski should change color! You have your choice between
two different colors.
Ride On A Dolphin!
I've  simplified the code down to the point that it's really easy.
Here is what you do.........
Select the Stunt Mode and play in Dolphin Park. From there you need to
go through all the rings
and do all the stunts (listed below), which includes diving underneath
the water from a ramp. If you
did everything correctly, you'll hear the dolphin squeaking when you
cross the finish line.

     Handstand (off throttle - press down and up) 
     Spin, i.e. "backwards ride" (off throttle - move stick clockwise)

     Stand (off throttle - move stick counterclockwise) + Somersault
(hold down) 
     Roll left (off ramp - tap right and hold left) 
     Roll right (off ramp - tap left and hold right) 
     Flip (off ramp - hold up and snap down) 
     Dive (off ramp - hold down and snap up) 

Now exit and select Championship Mode and then Warm Up. When selecting
your character, hold
down on the analog stick and when you start, you'll be riding a
dolphin. There is a catch, though; you
can only use the dolphin within this area. This cheat is also saved to
your game too (even after the
power is turned off), so you don't have to go through the stunt mode
each time.
Dampen waves
Press B just before you hit a big wave and itwill reduce the air time
when you fly 
off the wave. This also works on the ramps.
Change Camera Angle
C button up & down: Changes the zoom, in & out, on the camera.C left &
Changes camera angle as the rider turns 
Slide On Water
R Button: Slide on the water's surface. Useful if you take a turn too
Custom Characters
Ayumi Stuwart: Upgrade here engine to top end. She accelerates fast
enough, so this impoves here speed.
Ryoto Hayami: Loosen his handling and grip a bit to improve his speed.
Miles Jeter: Tighten his grip and handling. Increase his engine speed
or two notches.
HOT!!! Dave Marier: Loosen his handling and tighten his grip. Decrease
his engine
to dash. This increases his acceleration.
Stunt Mode Cheat 
This is where press start just as youare about to land a stunt? 
For those who don't know, doing thisincreases your stunt points 
dramatically! I've tried it, it works, Iblew away all of my old stunt 
scores today in about an hour, and now Idon't feel like playing 
any more. What's next; can you press start asyou pass a pylon
 to shave 3 seconds off a racing score? I could seemaybe getting 
Southern Island down to 12 or 13 seconds. That'd be real fun.
Same Colored Racer in Two-Player Mode

Here's a cool trick that allows both players to have the same racer
AND the same color in Wave Race
64. First, use controller two to decide which racer you are going to
use in the Vs. Mode, and make sure
that the first player's cursor is on an adjacent racer. Press up on
controller two (digital or analog) and
press Start to have player 1's default color. Then, on controller one,
press right (or left) and Start at
almost the same time. If you do this correctly, you can start the race
with both players having the same

If you want both players to have player 2's default color instead, try
the following: Use controller one to
decide the racer, and make sure that the second player's cursor is on
an adjacent racer. Press up on
controller one and press Start. Now on controller two, press right (or
left) and Start at almost the same
time. That's all there is to it. If you aren't already confused, wait
until you start the match!
New, Unlisted Stunts

Double Flip Stunt:
First get some speed with the jet ski. When you are on the ramp tap up
one inch from the top of the
ramp and hold down to do your flip. Instead of making the character do
one complete flip hold the down
button longer so he does another turn. If you do it correctly he will
land perfectly and ride on. J. Meter is
the best guy to do this especially on the small ramps. You get 2000+
points for this stunt. I have gotten
3120 for this stunt in Sunny Beach because the "judges" (the algorithm
which calculates the score)
gives you more for a smaller ramp and the height you jump off the

Helicopter Stunt:
It is a variation of the flip where you spin side ways. When you are
on the ramp turn sharply diagonal
left-up or diagonal right-up then hold down to do a side ways flip.
You can get an average of 1700+
points for this.

Helicopter into a Flip Stunt:
Do the helicopter stunt as listed above but hold the down button more
longer. It will look like he does a
helicopter move but then rotates so he is an upright position and does
another flip. You can get 2500+
points if done corectly. I have gotten 3450 points on the first ramp
in Twilight City for this.

Triple Flip:
To my knowledge this stunt can only be done in Glacier Park on the big
ramp. You need a lot of speed
and a lot of air to do this. It can only be done with J. Meter on this
stage to my knowledge. You tap up
1-2 inches from the top of the ramp and start doing the flip and hold
down. You need a lot of speed for
this one so do not try to do any turns or get hit by an ice block in
the water which may slow you down
or stop you completely. You can get 3000+ points for this. I have
gotten 5610 points because I sort of
started like a helicopter stunt with two flips after. Note that this
is a difficult stunt to perform and you do
need a lot of speed, timing, and maybe some tinkering with the
customization of the racer at the
character select screen.
Instant Power Ups
At the beginning of a race, hold both gas buttons as the last light
beeps. The closer you
get to the light, the more power you get.
