Section 1: What this FAQ is.

This guide is hidden combo tricks.  It is not a full FAQ/Walkthrough for Tony
Hawk's Pro Skater 4 (now refered to as THPS4).  In this guide I will explain
how to execute hidden combos during a variety of tricks.  I will also explain 
what is needed to pull off these tricks.  This FAQ will not provide a list of 
full tricks, just ones that can't be done without doing something else.  All of
the sections include tips on how to use them properly.  Very few of these are 
mentioned in the game.

The reason I started this guide was a topic on the THPS4 board at gamefaqs.com. 
The person wanted to know what the hidden combos were, so here they are.

**********************************************************************
Section 2: Flatland Combos

These hidden combos can be executed by going into a manual or nose manual and 
pressing the buttons for the desired move.  Press "square + square" perform a
board flip or R2 to perform a spin.

Manual: Up, Down 
     Square + Square: 360 Fingerflip
     R2: Pivot

Nose Manual: Down, Up
     Square + Square: Half Cab Impossible
     R2: Pivot

Pogo: Triangle + Triangle
     Square + Square: Wrap Around
     R2: Pogo Spin

Handstand: Circle + Circle
     Square + Square: Handflip 
     R2: none

Truckstand:  Triangle + Square
     Square + Square: Truckstand Flip
     R2: Truck Spin

Switch Foot Pogo: Triangle + Circle
     Square + Square: Halfwrap Truck Transfer
     R2: Switch Foot Pogo Spin

One Foot Manual: Circle + Triangle (must be done out of a manual)
     Square + Square: 360 Fingerflip
     R2: Pivot

One Foot Nose Manual: Circle + Triangle (must be done out of a nose manual)
     Square + Square: Half Cab Impossible
     R2: Pivot

To Rail: Circle + Square
     Square + Square: Railflip
     R2: none

Casper: Square + Triangle
     Square + Square: Casper Flip
     R2: Casper Spin

Anti Casper: Square + Triangle
     Square + Square: Anti Casper Flip
     R2: Anti Casper Spin


Tips:  These tricks are used countlessly in bringing up scores throughout the 
       game.  At the end of your run you should go into a manual and pull off 
       some of these tricks untill you get what score you need.  It is always
       good to do a flip (Square + Square) or spin/pivot (R2) for each hidden 
       combo.  For example: in Chicago, the "100,000 point flatland tricks." 
       You have to get 100,000 points.  If you do all of your specials and 
       still don't have enough, just pull some of these.  They also work well 
       when your competition run is ending.

**********************************************************************      
Section 3: Lip Combos

These hidden combos are done by going into a lip trick (handplant or axle 
stalls) and pressing the buttons for the desired trick.  There is a difference
in going up in a handplant or axle trick.

----------
Handplants|
----------

Invert: Triangle + Triangle

Andrecht Invert: Triangle + Circle

One Foot Invert: Square + Square

Eggplant: Square + Circle

Gymnast Plant: Circle + Circle

Varial Invert to Fakie: Circle + Square

*note: There are no tricks for the combos "Triangle + Square",
 "Square + Triangle" or "Circle + Triangle"

-----------
Axle Tricks|
-----------

Noseblunt: Triangle + Triangle

Nosepick: Triangle + Square

Blunt to Fakie: Triangle + Circle

Disaster: Square + Square

Rock to Fakie: Square + Circle

Axle Stall: Circle + Circle

Boneless: Circle + Square

*note: There are no tricks for the combos "Square + Triangle" or 
 "Circle + Triangle"


Tips:  Just like the flatland hidden combos, these can be used to bring up 
       scores at the end of your run.  When executing the lip hidden combos, it
       is always a good idea to keep the balance bar towards the ramp so if it 
       goes out of control you can keep the run going.

**********************************************************************
Section 4: Grind Combos

These hidden combos can be done by getting into a grind on a rail, coping or
any grindable edge.  To perform these you must press the buttons for the 
desired trick.

50-50 Grind: Triangle + Triangle

Noseslide: Triangle + Square

Nosegrind: Triangle + Circle

Smith Grind: Square + Square

Tailslide: Square + Triangle

5-0 Grind: Square + Circle

Crooked/Overcrook Grind: Circle + Circle

Bluntslide: Circle + Square

Nosebluntslide: Circle + Triangle


Tips: I rarely use these since most rails are to short to execute any.  Though,
      if you can get to a rail that goes in a circle, these tricks do give you
      more points.  It's also fun when you are free skating to do combos on the
      rail.

**********************************************************************
Section 5: Grab Combos

These hidden combos are executed by going into a grab and pressing the Circle 
button twice.  The first ones use the default controls so you might not be able
to do them with the skater you're using.

One Foot Tailgrab: Down, Circle + Circle

Stiffy: Right, Circle + Circle

Method: Left, Circle + Circle

Rocket Air: Up, Circle + Circle

Christ Air: Down-Right, Circle + Circle

One Foot Japan: Up-Left, Circle + Circle

Judo: Up-Right, Circle + Circle

Sacktap: Down-Right, Circle + Circle


These next ones do not have default controls.

Fingerflip Cannonball: Cannonball, Circle + Circle

Tuckknee: Crail Grab, Circle + Circle

Crooked Cop: Crossbone, Circle + Circle

BS Shifty: FS Shifty, Circle + Circle

Del Mar Indy: Indy Nosebone, Circle + Circle

Seatbelt Air: Mute, Circle + Circle

Body Wrap: Wrap Around, Circle + Circle

Stalefish Tweak: Stalefish, Circle + Circle


Tips:  At the end of your run, most tricks aren't giving very many points. 
       These can keep the points coming and hopefully give you enough to make
       the score.

**********************************************************************
Section 6: Flip Combos

These hidden combos are performed by doing a flip trick using two or three 
presses of the square button.  The first ones are using default controls so 
they may not be the same as one of your skaters.

Double Kickflip: Left, Square + Square

Triple Kickflip: Left, Square + Square + Square

Double Heelflip: Right, Square + Square

Triple Heelflip: Right, Square + Square + Square
Double Impossible: Up, Square + Square

Triple Impossible: Up, Square + Square + Square

360 FS Shove-It: Up, Square + Square

540 FS Shove-It: Up, Square + Square + Square

360 Shove-It: Down, Square + Square

540 Shove-It: Down, Square + Square + Square

360 Hardflip: Up-Left, Square + Square

360 Inward Heelflip: Up-Right, Square + Square

360 Flip: Down-Left, Square + Square

These next ones are not always on default.

360 Sal Flip: Sal Flip, Square + Square

360 Varial: 180 Varial, Square + Square

Double Back Foot Flip: Back Foot Kickflip, Square + Square

Double Back Foot Flip: Back Foot Heelflip, Square + Square

Double Front Foot Impossible: Front Foot Impossible, Square + Square

Double Finger Flip: Fingerflip, Square + Square

Ollie Airwalk Late Shove-It: Ollie Airwalk, Square + Square

Tips:  At the end of your run, most tricks aren't giving very many points. 
       These can keep the points coming and hopefully give you enough to make 
       the score.
