    Introduction
    *****************************************************************************
    In case you are wondering, I am new to the FAQ writing scene, but I have been 
    playing video games since the days of Pong so I know a bit about gaming.
    
    The following guide, faq, walkthrough, or whatever you want to call it, is
    intended to help you, the gamer, onto the right track to becoming your
    livingroom surfing champion.
    
    The game and game manuals include much of what you need, although some of the
    information in one contrasts the other. In general, if you notice something in
    the manual that is in contrast to something in the Wave House tutorials, the
    manual is wrong.
    
    I cannot say this enough, pay attention to Kelly in the Wave House, he knows
    what he is talking about.
    
    *****************************************************************************
    Controls
    *****************************************************************************
    Hopefully all of you are already familiar with the GameCube controller.
    If for some reason you aren't, consult any manual for any game on the system.
    I will address all buttons according to their official identifier excepting
    the Control Stick and Control Pad, which I will refer to as D-Stick and D-Pad.
    
    Also, I suggest reading the KSPS manual and playing through all 3 Wave House
    Levels before continuing into the game.
    
    Within KSPS there are four unique positions that alter the game controls.
    Catching A Wave: Lying on your board at the start or after a wipeout.
    The Face: Anywhere on the wave ahead of the breaking part.
    The Tube: Inside the breaking part. Some waves break in sections.
    The Air: In the air above the wave.
    
    ---------------
    Catching A Wave
    ---------------
    D-Stick/D-Pad - Left/Right turns surfer accordingly.
    X Button - Duck Dive. Turn into the wave and hold X to dive under the wave. 
    Y Button - Stand. Stand before you get too high on the wave.
    
    --------
    The Face
    --------
    D-Stick/D-Pad - Left/Right rotates surfer accordingly. Up speeds up surfer.
                    Down performs a stall. 
                    Face tricks depend on the D-Stick position
    
    A Button - Jump. Release when pointed off the top of the wave to get air.
    B Button - Carve/Snaps = sudden turns into or out of the wave.
    X Button - Grab turns = less abrupt turning. 
    Y Button - Tail slide = spin move. 
               Floater = slide along the peak of the wave.
    Z Button - Hold Z to change the camera to focus on the tube or objects.
    C-Stick  - Press up to cash in Special trick points.
    
    --------
    The Tube
    --------
    D-Stick/D-Pad - Hold Down to stall into the tube. Hold up to speed out.
                    Left/Right keeps your balance meter centered.
    		Tube tricks depend on the D-Stick direction.
    
    L/R Button - Quickly cut to the left or right to gain position in the tube.
    A Button - Speed up to escape the tube.
    X Button - Grab Rail = improves balance while holding.
    Y Button - Perform various tricks depending on Control Stick position.
    Z Button - Hold to change the camera to focus into the tube.
    
    -------
    The Air
    -------
    D-Stick/D-Pad - Left/Right spins the surfer accordingly.
    /C-Stick        Air Tricks depend on the D-Stick direction.
    
    B Button - Flip Tricks = flip the board while in mid air.  
    X Button - Grab Tricks = grab the board while in mid air. 
    Y Button - Exit Move. Y+Y then Y+D-Stick in any direction.
    
    Check the "Trick Book" on the boat or in the Pause menu to get a complete
    listing of tricks for a particular Surfer at a particular point in your
    career.
    
    ----------
    Pause Menu
    ----------
    Press "Start" to enter the pause menu. From here you can:
    Continue surfing.
    Retry a wave or Restart a Competition.
    Check the Beach Goals.
    Get tips.
    Change options.
    Check your Trick Book for Tricks.
    End the ride.
    Return to the Boat.
    
    *****************************************************************************
    The Boat
    *****************************************************************************
    The Boat is the main menu of the game. From the Boat you can select one 
    of several main menu choices.
    
    Options - Change Sound, Video, and Rumble Pak options.
    Free Surf - Practice your skills or go for high scores.
    Multiplayer - Play against friends in one of three modes.
    Extras - Check out the movies you unlock in career mode, among other things.
    Career Mode - Bring yourself up through the ranks of pro surfing.
    
    A brief note on saving
    ----------------------
    The game requires 2 files, 1 settings and 1 surfer, for a total of 14 blocks.
    You can save a career over another and it will keep your progress accept that
    you will not be able to return to the other career or the scrap book.
    I recommend this to save space, but make sure you complete each career and
    save your favorite surfer for the last spot to get the scrap book.
    
    Returning to the Boat during career mode allows you to select new boards,
    check out new tricks in your trick book, and select your personality suit
    when you unlock it. You may also see your photos in the scrap book.
    
    *****************************************************************************
    Meters and Scoring
    *****************************************************************************
    There are several meters and visual indicators used in KSPS. Some are 
    present through out the ride, while others are goal specific or
    moment specific. I will explain them in order of where they appear.
    
    Upper Right:
    Score - Keeps track of the points you earn. Linked tricks don't score until
            your special meter runs out or you cash in. Don't bail!
    
    Clock - Stop watch counts down (usually 3 minutes) until time is up.
            If you bail your time is penalized. A second timer appears to track
            how long your special meter has been yellow for certain goals.
    
    Special - Perform tricks to max it out. When maxed, perform special tricks.
    
    Lower Right:
    Wave Meter - Shows wave height and breaking sections. It also shows the
                 next waves height, if you want to wait around for the big one.
    
    Hazard Sign - Yellow sign flashes when objects are near.
    
    Upper Left:
    Objective Display - Tracks certain goal requirements.
    
    Left Hand Icons:
    Icons - Icons picturing moves will drop down on the left side. Complete them
            to clear them from the stack. If the stack fills up before you 
            complete the required number, you lose.
    
    Green Triangle = Standard Air Tricks
    Purple Square = Standard Face Tricks
    Red Circle = Standard Tube Tricks
    Yellow Icons = Special Tricks, dependant on shape.
    
    Bottom Center:
    Trick Tracker - Keeps track of the building score of your current trick set.
                    You have a base score for style and a multiplier for variety.
    
    Sloppy/Perfect - Depending on how you land an Air Trick you will be rated
                     either sloppy, perfect, or no rating. Perfect increases
                     your special meter, while sloppy decreases it.
    
    *****************************************************************************
    Goals
    *****************************************************************************
    Creating a step by step walkthrough for a game like this is more or less
    pointless, because each surfer surfs his/her own way just like each player
    plays his/her own way. Instead I will list the various goal types that
    are encountered throughout the game and what you need to do to achieve each
    goal. From there I will give you each beach and it's specific goals, what
    was unlocked by completing those goals, and pointers on beach specific 
    obstacles.
    
    Beat the Grom/Beat the Local
    ----------------------------
    These are your basic "achieve this score before time runs out" goals. The
    local is the higher of the two and makes it to 500,000 on later beaches. 
    Many of the other goals also require a certain total score, usually less
    than the grom, so shooting for the grom every time is a good idea.
    Read the "Top Score Tips" for a better idea of how to get high scores.
    
    Score ## Points in Air/Face/Tube Tricks
    ---------------------------------------
    Simply rack up the points needed on the particular part of the wave.
    The score needed can be anywhere from about 10,000 to 50,000 points
    
    Ride for ## Seconds Without Wiping Out
    --------------------------------------
    Don't crash, don't bail, don't wipe out. These generally require a score
    total as well. The score required for it must be achieved in that time 
    limit. The final board requires you to ride for 170 seconds for 500,000
    points.
    
    Max Out Your Special Meter for ## Seconds
    -----------------------------------------
    Anywhere from 5 to 40 seconds of special. Learn to land perfect and this
    becomes a lot easier. Also, dipping in and out of the tube can help this.
    
    Collect ## Icons
    ----------------
    Perform the tricks as the icons fall from the sky. An Icon can be completed,
    but only the current Icon will ever give you the button combo, but don't
    depend on it at the harder beaches. If you bail you lose any Icons you have
    completed, but haven't cashed in. If you get an Icon you don't want to do,
    wait for the next icon if you know the combo for it.
    
    ## of Points in # Photos/## Point Photo of a Special Trick
    ----------------------------------------------------------
    3 photos will be taken during the ride. Some rounds will add up the points
    from all three, others will only take the best total for one photo. In
    every case it is best to max out your special meter and rack up your linked
    tricks until photo time. A camera focus will materialize as a timer counts 
    to four, at which time the photo will flash. Trick on the third beep and
    know how to land when the flash goes off.
    
    Place 1st/2nd/3rd in "Beach" Competition
    ----------------------------------------
    Perform well in three heats. You must spread your tricks between the 
    required parts of the wave to place well. Wipe outs lower your score and 
    take time away.
    
    Perform # Degree Air Tricks
    ---------------------------
    Rotate and land a certain number of 360s or 540s. Make sure you make it
    full circle or it may not count. To many rotations is fine, it still counts.
    Some surfer can spin faster and jump higher, so if you are having trouble
    try using the board with the best spin and air. I managed a 1260 at Currens
    Point with Tiki God on his board.
    
    Learn How to Pull Off "New Trick"
    ---------------------------------
    Perform the new special trick 3 times. An Icon will form in the top left
    giving you Air/Face/Tube and part of the button combo. Know the special
    tricks. Completing the trick adds it to your book, and usually unlocks
    another new trick.
    
    Splash/Spray/Jump/Smash "Object"
    --------------------------------
    You will need to splash/spray/jump/smash 3 of these items in the round.
    Objects range from a fat guy floating on a tube to a Jet skier zipping about
    the waves. Splashing/Spraying means you have to zip up close and catch the
    object with the spray from your board. You can usually achieve this by
    carving very close. Smashing is simply running over the object. This often
    counts as spraying as well, but not always. Jumping can be either a little
    hop over the object as it floats out in front of you or catching air in an
    arc over it as it rolls over the lip of the wave. 
    
    *****************************************************************************
    Top Score Tips
    *****************************************************************************
    Rotation, Rotation, Rotation - The more rotations the more base points.
    Learn to land - Perfect is still perfect backwards.
    Mix the tricks - The more variety the higher the multiplier.
    Use the Tube - Your base points go up every second you are in the tube.
    Know your Tricks - Special tricks give high base points.
    You're Special - The longer the special the higher the total.
    Stay Close - The closer to the tube, the more points and higher Air.
    Know the Wave - Many waves will break in front of you at points.
    Over isn't Over - The round won't end until your special dies down.
    
    With the right combination of rotations and moves, you can hit 500,000 pts
    in one trick set. It's possible to get that many points in about 15 seconds
    if you do it right.
    
    *****************************************************************************
    Surfers
    *****************************************************************************
    KSPS has 9 Pro surfers, the best of the best in the current surfing world,
    and 4 secret surfers. Each of the 13 surfers have different strengths and
    weaknesses based on their statistics and those of their boards. The surfer
    stats seem to make up approximately 65% while board stats make up the other
    35%. This is by no means an exact figure, but should give you a solid idea
    of how one surfer will perform against another. Low stats does not mean
    poor performance, just less rotations in the air for the most part.
    
    The surfer's ability is based on four stats:
    spin - Their ability to rotate in the air.
    speed - Their speed on the face of a wave.
    air - Their ability to jump.
    balance - Their ability to remain standing in the tube and when landing.
    
    For each surfer I will give a name and their stats in the form of a percent
    set "Base Stat / Top Stat"

    Beaches
    *****************************************************************************
    For this section I will be playing through as Nathan Fletcher and Tom Curren,
    but it shouldn't make any difference except which tricks are unlocked when.
    The order I use is not the only order, but it is the one I have found to be
    fastest when traveling the world map. 
    
    Keep in mind that some Surfers have more Special Tricks to start so they may
    not gain New Tricks everywhere that these two have. Depending on the surfer,
    you may be able to get new tricks at any beach.
    
    (Press Y on the world map for a complete map Bio)
    
    Many unlockables are goal specific so that you need not complete the entire
    Beach to gain them, but for purposes of simplicity I will only list the
    unlockables as I complete the entire round.
    
    The Beach format will be as follows:
    The Beach Title - Secondary Beach Title if applicable - Level Title

    *****************************************************************************
    Unlockables & Secrets
    *****************************************************************************
    There are several sets of unlockable things throughout the game, each being
    unlocked by completing different goals at different beaches. If you want to
    know specifically how to unlock something read the Beaches section.
    
    Beaches and Levels
    ------------------
    There are 16 beaches, with additional weather conditions totaling 22 beaches,
    that you progress through in career mode. Each beach has between one and 3
    levels, whith its own set of goals. Once a surfer reaches the beach it becomes
    unlocked in the other game modes. Defeating main goals at a particular beach
    will unlock new beaches or levels.
    
    Boards
    ------
    Each of the 9 surfers have their own quiver of 9 boards of varying stats and 
    looks. The player begins with the weakest and unlocks the other eight by 
    completing various goals at various beaches.
    
    There are 14 boards that are unlocked when any surfer beats the main goal at
    Teahupoo B.C. Each of these boards has varied stats that are all at about
    the same level as the top board in the standard quiver.
    
    There is also an "ultimate" board with perfect stats that is unlocked when 
    you complete the career with any surfer.
    
    All boards that are unlocked become useable in the other game modes,
    although each surfer may only use the 9 boards specific to his/her standard 
    quiver.
    
    Movies
    ------
    All movies can be accessed through the Extras Menu.
    
    As you proceed through the career you move to new beaches. Doing so unlocks
    intro movies for each beach.
    
    Winning with a particular surfer will unlock a long version of his/her bio 
    movie.
    
    Riding 90 seconds at Cortez Bank unlocks a Bails movie. You can watch your
    favorite pro surfers screw up at what they do best.
    
    Personality Suits
    -----------------
    Each of the 9 pros has one alternate appearance that is unlocked when you
    complete. The new appearance has a board that you are required to use with
    the suit unless you have unlocked the extra 14 boards or the super board.
    The board is not accessable if you are not using the suit. Board stats will
    vary based on what board you were using when you switched to the suit.
    
    Tricks
    ------
    Each surfer has a unique set of special moves, some surfers may have certain
    moves that others do not. These sets gain tricks as career mode progresses,
    allowing more tricks for that surfer to be used in other modes.
    
    Handicaps
    ---------
    Gaining stats in career mode will allow you to increase a surfer's handicap
    in the other game modes.
    
    Surfers
    -------
    Upon completion of the Teahupoo main goal with any surfer, you will unlock 
    four new surfers:
    
    Tony Hawk - Skateboarding legend.
    Travis Pastrana - Motocross freestylist. He can Headstand on the Face.
    Surfreak(Surffreak) - See for yourself.
    Tiki God - Need I say more? 
    
    The secret surfers do not have a complete quiver. They have one custom board
    with near perfect stats. They also lack a personality suit and won't even
    wear a wetsuit in Antarctica. Their stats and trick books will improve with
    a career, and they can use the 14 secret boards and the super board, once
    unlocked at the end of the career. Their standard boards make it very easy
    to complete a career with them as well as reaching top scores on beaches
    early in the career.
    
    Beach Secrets
    -------------
    I don't know if these secrets have a point or not, but I have not looked for
    all of them to find out. Basically they are "Tricks" that appear orange on
    your trick tracker and add multipliers and points. Some are obvious, like
    splashing or smashing the various objects while others are more difficult
    to find. An example is landing on top of the Tube or breaking through the
    tube wall. If you are in search of something to do, try finding them all and
    see what they do.
    
    *****************************************************************************
    Cheats
    *****************************************************************************
    Input cheats into your phone in the Extras section of the menu. 
    Cheats appear in the form of phone numbers and are stored in your phone once
    they are unlocked in game. I wasn't paying attention to my phone ever, so I
    don't know when the cheats are unlocked, but here are the cheats that I have
    found.
    
    I haven't used them and don't care to, so I don't know exactly how well they
    work.
    
    I have unlocked:
    1st Person - 877-555-3825
    Balance - 213-555-5721
    High Jump - 217-555-0217
    Max Stats - 212-555-1776
    
    You can't record top scores while using cheats. Something to think about.
