    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.
