                                       UPDATES
    
    October 11, 2007: Just found this on the FAQ Bounty list and I'm getting
    started on this right away. I have two months to get this done, and I'm going
    to spend a lot of time on this. Getting to work.
    
    October 16, 2007: Version 0.10 released. I have completed walkthroughs for the
    first 16 challenges, and I'm updating every Friday and Monday. Stay posted for
    more.
    
    October 18, 2007: Okay, so things are a bit unfinished here, obviously. The ToC
    has been updated a little, and I've finished the first 25 challenges. I would
    have done more, but I just realized today that I got almost 1000 views on the
    first day! I'll give you guys a bigger update on Monday to show my
    appreciation. I also put my gamertag up next to my username. Thanks again! 
    
    October 20, 2007: I really have to apologize for this. Smallest update ever.
    Just three challenges. But, you see, I just got Halo 3 on Friday. I wasn't
    planning on getting it, but my friends made me, and now I can't stop.
    Unfortunately, this means smaller updates. Definitely bigger than this one
    though. Very sorry, and I'm hoping to have another 7 challenges at least done
    for Friday's update.
    
    October 25th, 2007: Four challenges done. Upsetting. I'll try to get as much
    as I can done by Monday, but Halo 3 is killing my will. Damn it. Sorry again.
    
    August 12, 2008: Oh....man.......I have one word. Sorry! Almost been a year..
    Well, to be honest, once I didn't win the bounty, I gave up on this. But now,
    as I near 100,000 hits, with about 150 hits per day, I realize how many people
    probably hate me, especially the ones expecting an update on Monday...I AM VERY
    SORRY! I promise I will finish this FAQ. I have mastered skate, I've got all
    of the achievements, bought everything that you can buy, completed absolutely
    everything, and I even have some killer footage, photos, and a pretty high rank
    in online Jam. There is nothing left for me to do in skate, yet I still want to
    play, and that is what is motivating me to write again.
    
    February 5, 2009: Version 0.15 released. Well, it's been like a year and a half
    since I started this, and unfortunately, I just didn't have the interest to
    complete it. But in the spirit of re-opening failed projects months later, here
    I am with an update. I want to really start writing again. I had planned on
    writing a guide for Gears of War 2, but I absolutely hated the game,
    unfortunately. Sequels suck. Maybe I'll get Skate 2 though! Anyways, I do plan
    on finishing this damn guide, not that I even need to judging by my 122,480
    hits on this one. Yeah, this is my most popular guide. This saddens me. Moving
    on, I will finish this game, and I have another project planned that I will
    complete once I start it, and it will be for the DS. I haven't decided on a
    game yet, but I have a few in mind. Expect monthly updates.
    
    February 7, 2009: Version 0.3 released. Early update! I just had to play some
    skate, so here's a pretty decent 10 KB update. This covers all of The
    Skateboard Mag's challenges, and I'm now working on Thrasher. This is finally
    looking like I'm going to be able to complete it. Thanks for reading.
    
    June 13, 2009: Version 1.00 released! 20 KB update to finish the guide! Finally
    done. Man, I thought I'd never finish this thing. Well, I'll get to the extras,
    but for now, enjoy the guide; the walkthrough has been finished! And I actually
    had a change of heart and decided to finish the ToC! So there you go. Updates,
    well, they'll happen.

    ..................................:1. Career:..............................(1)
    
    Let's get right into this one. The game opens up with a pretty funny scene in
    which you get hit by a bus. Yes, a bus. Anyway, after you've entered your info
    and you've created your skater, it's time to start filming.
    
    You'll get a quick tutorial on how to ollie. It's pretty easy, and they show
    you what to do. Then you'll get a pushing tutorial, and you'll have to hop up
    onto a ledge, which might be hard. A few tutorials later, you'll be off on your
    way to becoming a pro. Oh yeah. Let's get started with the challenges. The
    first one is the one in the top left corner.
    
    ..............................:Tutorial - Nollies:.........................(2)
    
    - Stay within 150 ft
    - Nollie in all gates
    - Reach the lot
    
    Start out by staying close to P-Rod. To Nollie, push up, then down on the
    right stick. Perform this in the giant green areas to pass each gate.Once
    you've passed all of the gates, you'll see a red gate. Pass through it to
    complete the challenge.
    
    Once you've done this, move to the red icon on your map to play some S.K.A.T.E.
    with Shingo.
    
    ..............................:S.K.A.T.E. - Shingo:........................(3)
    
    All you have to do is nail his tricks, then wait for him to bail so you can set
    your own. Once it's your turn to set, try an ollie 360 or a kickflip 360.
    Basically, if you can do a 360, you can win.
    
    New Challenges: Follow Me - Follow Shingo, Tutorial - Manuals
    
    After that painstakingly easy challenge, head to the blue icon on your map for
    your next one.
    
    ..............................:Tutorial - Manuals:.........................(4)
    
    - Fliptrick into Manual
    - Stay in Manual
    - Fliptrick from Manual
    
    Just fliptrick, then push down on the right analog stick gently to start. Keep
    holding the right analog stick down gently until it says you've stayed in for
    long enough, then all you have to do is do a fliptrick the way you normally
    would, except you're starting in a manual.
    
    Another challenge beaten. Head over to the red icon on your map for yet another
    one.
    
    ..........................:Follow Me - Follow Shingo:......................(5)
    
    - Stay within 180 ft
    - Get to the school
    
    Staying within 180 feet may be hard because of all the obstacles, so just take
    it slow and relax. After a few minutes, you'll notice a blue gate. Head into
    it to complete the challenge. 
    
    New Challenges: Photo - My First Photo!!
    
    Your first Follow Me challenge, complete! Right next to you is your first
    Photo challenge, so what are you waiting for?
    
    ..........................:Photo - My First Photo!!:.......................(6)
    
    - Hit up the stairs
    - Get 100 Points
    - Do 1 Grind
    
    Get a slow start by pushing twice, then push down on the right stick and flick
    it up to ollie onto the rail. Not achieving 100 points is almost impossible, so
    just worry about the rail. If you mess up, hold LB and hit up on the D-Pad to
    respawn at the top.
    
    New Challenges: Film - Filming 101, Tutorial - Scoring a Line, Tutorial - 
    Advanced Grinds
    
    It's time now for your first Film Challenge, so find a spot with a rail and hit
    RB. When you're in position, hit Y to begin.
    
    .............................:Film - Filming 101:..........................(7)
    
    - Get 500 Points
    - Do 2 Grinds
    
    Start off by grinding some ledges and rails. If you don't have 500 points
    after grinding, do an ollie 180 or some kickflips, or just grind some more. I
    did this at the rail where you do your first photo, but it's not the best
    place. The idea is to start slow, ollie onto the rail, then fliptrick onto the
    rail once more.
    
    New Challenges: Best Trick - Community Spirit!
    
    Use your map and quick navigate to your next tutorial, which is the bottom
    rightmost blue icon. To quick navigate, just select an icon and hit A.
    
    .........................:Tutorial - Advanced Grinds:......................(8)
    
    - Flip into a Grind
    - Do a long Grind
    - Flip out of the Grind
    
    From where you start, do a simple fliptrick and land on the bench to grind it.
    After a second or two of grinding the bench, you'll have grinded long enough,
    so just do a fliptrick as you normally would, except off of the rail.
    
    Now, to the next blue icon.
    
    .........................:Tutorial - Scoring a Line:.......................(9)
    
    - Get x1.5 multiplier to start a line
    - Get 800 points in a line
    
    Just do an ollie 360, a grind, or a fliptrick to start your line. Fliptrick
    into a grind and out of it or just keep doing random fliptricks for 800 points.
    
    Now it's time for your first Best Trick contest. Get to the red icon on your
    map, and let's go.
    
    .......................:Best Trick - Community Spirit!:....................(10)
    
    Okay, so, as you may have guessed, the object of a Best Trick contest is to get
    the highest score you can on an obstacle.
    
    Round 1
    
    Okay, so, you need around 250 points or more on a trick to get first. Try a
    triple heelflip 360 or a grab 360, and if you can do it, a 540. For a double
    heelflip, just hold the stick up after you do one heelflip. When you let go
    of the right stick, you'll complete the flip. This one's the hardest round in
    my opinion.
    
    Round 2
    
    Again, around 250 points should get you first, but this is the easiest one.
    Just get some speed, grind the pad, flip out, grind again or land in a manual,
    and you've got 400+ points.
    
    Round 3
    
    You need more points here, but it's still not much of a problem. Just fliptrick
    onto the middle rail, grind, and flip out with a spin. You win.
    
    New Challenges: Tutorial - Pumping
    
    Move over to the blue icon nearby for another tutorial.
    
    ............................:Tutorial - Pumping:..........................(11)
    
    - Push to drop into the half-pipe
    - Do 4 Pumps
    - Do a Christ/No Foot Air
    
    Just hit X or A to drop, and make sure not to hit them again, because you'll
    fail. Push up on the left stick when you approach the incline 4 times, then
    get some air by pumping. In the air, hold LT or RT and hit B. Be sure not to
    hold it too long, or you'll bail. You just have to hold it for a second.
    
    
    Now, head on over to the red icon, which would be the Regs shop, where you can
    buy new stuff for your skater, get a sponsor, or just to trigger events. Once
    you're there, you'll get a scene, and you'll unlock a Regs T-Shirt and the
    Jubba Jingle Jam.
    
    ..........................:Jam - Jubba Jingle Jam:........................(12)
    
    Well, honestly, a few grinds could win you this if you mix them up with some
    fliptricks, but I think you'll have more fun experimenting with everything,
    like airing off of the ramps and grinding the rails. 3000 points is no
    problem, so just mix it up and have fun.
    
    New Challenges: Film - Regs Shop Film
    
    Now, hit RB to check your new Film Challenge. When you've found a spot that
    suits you, hit Y to begin.
    
    ..........................:Film - Regs Shop Film:.........................(13)
    
    - Get 1,000 Points
    
    You could honestly do this on the street by grinding the curb and fliptricking
    off of it, but as long as you find a place with a nice spot for grinding, this
    should be the easiest Film Challenge ever.
    
    New Challenges: Jam - Poolside Chill, Film - Grinding Teeth, Film - Tapeheads,
    Film - Summer of Slam, Film - Line'em Up, Film - Crank It, Film - Opinion,
    Photo - Stack My Tables, Photo - GAP IT UP, S.K.A.T.E. Mail Order,
    Best Trick - Rail Fest
    
    As you can tell, this is the most fun part of the game. You have SO much to do,
    so let's get started. Find a curb or a nice grinding spot and start the first
    Film Challenge on your list.
    
    ..........................:Film - Grinding Teeth:.........................(14)
    
    - Get 1,250 Points
    - Do 3 Grinds
    - Total 30ft Grind
    
    Well, if you found a nice spot to grind, this should be easy as hell. Just mix
    up your grinds and fliptricks, and you shouldn't have a problem with the
    points. Three grinds isn't a problem at all. A 30 foot grind is best done as
    your first few grinds. Start off with a few pushes, then hop onto a rail and
    grind. Grind over and over again, and you'll have this one done easily.
    
    Find a spot with a decent ramp and start your next Film Challenge, which is the
    second one out of your five.
    
    ..........................:Film - Summer of Slam:.........................(15)
    
    - Do 3 Grabs
    - Total 8s Air
    - Total 720deg Spin
    
    You can grab three times off of an ollie. Just hold LT or RT for a second in
    the air. Just do high ollies over and over again to get a second of air each
    time. You could also use a ramp. Ollie 180 a few times, and you'll have gotten
    your total spin.
    
    Now, for your next Film Challenge. Scroll to Line'em Up and let's go.
    
    ............................:Film - Line'em Up:...........................(16)
    
    - Get 2,000 Points
    
    This is easy to do at the Community Center. Go to the halfpipe where you got
    the Pumping tutorial, and do Christ Airs until you reach 2,000 points.
    
    Scroll through your Film Challenges and start your third one. Let's go.
    
    .............................:Film - Opinion:.............................(17)
    
    - Get 2,250 Points
    - Do 3 Manuals
    - Grind to Fliptrick to Grind
    
    This may seem redundant, but find a curb for this challenge. Use the same way
    you used for the other challenges, you know, the whole flptrick in and out of
    a grind thing. You should get a 2x multiplier on your first line, and that will
    help you out a lot. Just manual after fliptricking off of the curb, fliptrick
    again, and you've gotten good points and a manual. Repeat a few times. 
    
    New Challenges: Photo - Storefront
    
    Next, to your newest challenge, which would be the red camera icon on your map.
    Let's get started.
    
    ...........................:Photo - Storefront:...........................(18)
    
    - Gap to the Street
    - Do 1 Manual
    
    I gotta tell you, this is a bit of a letdown. All you do is: Push twice, ollie
    onto the ledge with the arrow above it, manual, then get out of the manual once
    you're in the street. You're done. Hooray!

    Pro Challenge - Carroll's Challenge, Pro Challenge - Hsu's Eduskate,
    Pro Challenge - Dill Kinked Manny, Pro Challenge - Haslam Bump to Bar,
    
    Damn, that's a lot. Well, for the hell of it, I'm gonna cover all of them, so
    you should just do them too. Let's start unlocking all the sponsors with the
    uppermost challenge.
    
    ...................:Pro Challenge - Haslam Bump to Bar:...................(19)
    
    - Bump to the bar
    - Fliptrick to Grind to Fliptrick
    - Get 550 Points
    
    Push a few times and fliptrick off the ramp. You can add a spin too, if you can
    still land on the rail. Once you do, fliptrick and land on the rail again,
    which will essentially seal your 550 points, and since you've done everything
    else, you win!
    
    Don't pick this sponsor unless you want Almost as your sponsor. We're still
    going to complete every sponsor's challenges, so it doesn't matter. Now head
    to the only other challenge in the Suburbs.
    
    ...................:Pro Challenge - Carroll's Challenge:..................(20)
    
    - Hit 3 of 6 Ledges
    - Do a line worth 600 Points
    
    Just grind the ledges, fliptrick off, then repeat. Keep spinning and
    fliptricking to keep the line alive. This is way too easy.
    
    Let's head on over to the new northernmost challenge on your map now.
    
    ....................:Pro Challenge - Busenitz Wall Gap:...................(21)
    
    - Ride the Wall
    - Jump Wall Gap
    - Land It
    
    Okay, start off with two pushes and only two. Don't push any more. Ride down
    the sidewalk. Don't go up the incline with the stairs on it. Once you reach the
    mini ramp going into the wall, air off of it and ride the wall. If you went
    fast enough, you'll clear the gap and hopefully land. This one's not too bad.
    
    Alright, next one from the top, just like we've been doing. 
    
    ....................:Pro Challenge - Cole Gap to Grind:...................(22)
    
    - Ride the Block
    - Jump the Gap
    - Grind the Left Rail
    
    Okay, so you're gonna have to set this up before you try it. Push to the part
    where you first get on the sidewalk. Place a Session Marker there. Now, push
    twice towards the arrow so that you fall down, then push once more, then jump
    off and try to land on the left rail. It should only take a few tries.
    
    Let's go to Downtown. We'll work our way down the map, so start from the top.
    
    ...................:Pro Challenge - TK's Rail Challenge:..................(23)
    
    - Grind the Rail
    - Get 600 Points
    
    Start off with one push and get ready to fliptrick. Fliptrick and spin onto
    the rail, fliptrick again, then land on the rail. Easy 600 points, easy
    challenge.
    
    
    And the next challenge down is.....
    
    .....................:Pro Challenge - Hsu's Eduskate:.....................(24)
    
    - On the Book
    - Get 500 Points
    
    I found this incredibly easy after finding out what to do, but you might not.
    Push twice from the start, then fliptrick onto the edge of the book and grind
    it. Fliptrick out and spin, then land it for around 600 points, which is more
    than enough for this challenge.
    
    
    And now, for your final Downtown Pro Challenge.
    
    ....................:Pro Challenge - Smith Securigrind:...................(25)
    
    - Get Chased
    - Grind the Rail
    
    From where you start, skate forward and follow the sidewalk. When it curves,
    turn with it. Right after the turn, place a session marker. Head up the ramp
    and into the No-Skate Zone. Hang around until you see a red arrow and you hear
    music. The camera will also zoom out. If that's not happening, skate into the
    security guard and then you'll be getting chased. Once you're getting chased,
    skate towards the rail, but wait for it to decline. Jump onto the rail and
    grind it to complete this challenge.
    
    
    Go to your map, select the northernmost challenge in Old Town, and head over.
    
    ...................:Pro Challenge - P-Rod Tech to Hubba:..................(26)
    
    - Ride the Hubba
    - NOLLIE 360 FLIP to Grind
    
    First of all, go to your trick book and learn how to do a nollie 360 flip. Now
    practice a little bit, and when you think you've got it, push only once and
    approach the hubba. Nollie 360 flip onto it, and make sure you grind. This one
    is hard. Some tips: Don't push more than once, because you'll go too far. Don't
    get too close, or else your board will hit into the hubba. Use your session
    marker to retry. When in midair after completing the nollie 360 flip, move the
    right stick left or right to get an almost guaranteed grind.
    
    Next one down on the map, and don't worry, we're almost done with these.
    
    ....................:Pro Challenge - Dill Kinked Manny:...................(27)
    
    - Skate the kink
    - Fliptrick to Manual to Fliptrick
    
    Kickflip over the block, land in a manual, then fliptrick out. Are you kidding
    me? This is one the easiest challenges ever.
    
    Now, for your last Pro Challenge.
    
    ....................:Pro Challenge - Ali Bridge Plunge:...................(28)
    
    - Make it to the ground
    - Do a line worth 500 points
    
    Okay, this one's not too bad. Push once, fliptrick onto the ledge, then quickly
    fliptrick out and land on the ramp smoothly. This might take a few tries, but
    it's mostly luck. Make sure to straighten your board out before the landing.
    
    Now, head on over to Reg's to pick your sponsor. Hit RT to go to the Lounge
    and select Sponsors. Now choose a board sponsor. Go back and hit LT twice to
    get to the Shopping section. Hit A and buy a skateboard (it's free though)
    from your sponsor. You will now get extra sponsor money for challenges. Now,
    exit the shop. 
    
    Now, open up your map. Notice the uppermost red icon? Go there.
    
    ..........................:Jam - Poolside Chill:..........................(29)
    
    This is really easy jam. Do a fliptrick off the drop at the start to get a 2x
    multiplier and around 600 points. Just do grab 540s over and over again, or
    double kickflips. You could also grind the edge of the pool, but it's not too
    great.
    
    Now look at the camera icon in the Suburbs. Let's head there.
    
    .........................:Photo - Stack My Tables:........................(30)
    
    - Get 400 Points
    - Do 1 Grind
    - Do 1 Flip Trick
    
    Start off with two pushes, then fliptrick onto the edge of the table and grind
    it. Fliptrick off with a rotation, and you'll have this. It can be tricky to
    nail the grind though. Remember to use your session markers.
    
    New Challenges: Absolutely nothing.
    
    Now, let's hit up the photo spot next to Regs in The Res.
    
    ............................:Photo - Gap it Up:...........................(31)
    
    - Clear the Gap
    - Get 300 Points
    
    Start off with 4 pushes, then ollie onto the wavy path. Immediately push twice,
    then hit the ramp and do a fliptrick into a grab with a rotation to finish this
    off.
    
    New Challenges: Photo - Who The Hell Is?
    
    Go to your map and head over to the expanding camera icon in Downtown. 
    
    .........................:Photo - Who The Hell Is?:.......................(32)
    
    - Ledge to middle rail 
    - Do 1 Flip Trick
    - Do 1 Grind
    
    Start off with 2 pushes, then fliptrick off the part of the ledge that's left
    of the rail sticking up. Adjust your board so that you land on the rail, and
    that's it. Congrats, you just got a cover shot.
    
    New Challenges: Pro Challenge - Gallant Step Up
    
    More on Monday. <---rofl by monday i meant almost a year later
    
    ..............................:Photo - Photo G:...........................(33)
    
    - Get to the ledge curve
    - Get 400 Points
    - Do 1 Grind
    
    Start off with 2 pushes, then ollie off the incline from the left side of the
    ledge and land in a grind. If you grind long enough to get 400 points, just
    ollie out, but if you need more points, just fliptrick out.
    
    New Challenges: Film - First Things First
    
    .........................:Film - First Things First:......................(34)
    
    - Remain in a No Skate Zone
    - Get 1,000 Points
    
    It's easy to do this at the same ledge you just tore up for the challenge.
    Grind it, fliptrick out, repeat. There are some stairs around here that you
    can easily grind as well. Just remember, you need to stay in the No Skate Zone
    the entire time. 
    
    New Challenges: Follow Me - Follow Freeway
    
    .........................:Follow Me - Follow Freeway:.....................(35)
    
    - Stay within 210 ft
    - Get to Slappy's
    
    Well..uh...don't fall? Try not to push once you've started going downhill,
    cause Freeway makes some turns you might not see coming. Just make it to
    Slappy's, and you're done! Heh, as I was writing this, I failed it 3 times.
    Stupid Freeway...
    
    New Challenges: Deathrace - Race to Slappy's
    
    ........................:Deathrace - Race to Slappy's:....................(36)
    
    Well, I'm not gonna lie, this is hard. My advice? DON'T MISS A GATE. If you do,
    just restart. I actually got lucky this race cause the dude in front of me fell
    RIGHT before the finish. Just keep pushing until you get to a part where
    there's a lot of cars, then just try to avoid them. Cars are your biggest enemy
    right here.
    
    New Challenges: Film - Hallowed Ground, Film - Hit and Run, Film - Sight
    Unseen, Film - Off the Deep End, Film - Ghetto Blasters, Film - Churning Budda,

    Oh, god. That took a while to type. Naturally, you've got a lot of choices.....
    
    ....Let's just go back to the Skateboard Mag....
    
    ...........................:Best Trick - Rail Fest:.......................(37)
    
    Round 1
    
    Essentially, you'll want to push once, fliptrick onto the rail, then fliptrick
    and spin out. That should be enough to win it. You can't use your session
    marker, so just intentionally slam if you want to go back to the start, it's a
    lot faster. I won this round with 551 points.
    
    Round 2
    
    Same thing as last time. Make sure you are going very slow so that you can
    fliptrick off the rail. I won this round with 806 points.
    
    Round 3
    
    Just fliptrick onto a ledge and keep on fliptricking off and landing back in
    a grind. Very very easy. I won this round with 1,215 points.
    
    .......................:Pro Challenge - Gallant Step Up:..................(38)
    
    - Step it up 
    - Get 300 Points
    
    This isn't really that easy. Push 3 times, then hold down on the right stick
    and prepare to ollie. Land on the ledge in a manual and quickly, VERY quickly,
    fliptrick out. This is pretty hard, but you'll get the hang of it.
    
    New Challenges: Pro Challenge - McKay's Grind 'N Flip, Best Trick - Preparation
    B
    
    Well, since you can, hit Y to enter the Plan B Warehouse!
    
    ...................:Pro Challenge - McKay's Grind 'N Flip:................(39)
    
    - Hit the bowled corner coping
    - Grind to Fliptrick
    - Get 800 Points
    
    ...Uh. What? Don't worry, it seems harder than it is. To make this easy, just
    ignore everything, go into the halfpipe, and just go back and forth pulling 360
    grabs and/or Christ Airs until you get a 3x multiplier. Then, go up the side of
    the halfpipe opposite the bowled corner, get some air, then ride up the bowled
    corner and grind it. Fliptrick out with a little spin, and you should get it no
    problem.
    
    ........................:Best Trick - Preparation B:......................(40)
    
    Round 1
    
    This isn't bad. Just ollie up onto the ledge and fliptrick out. I won this
    round with a score of 1,115.
    
    Round 2
    
    Get some speed, ollie up onto the ledge on the left, grind, fliptrick out. I
    won this round with 1,484 points.
    
    Round 3
    
    Just get as much speed as possible, fliptrick off the ramp, grab, and throw in
    a few spins. This is easy. I won this round with 720 points.
    
    Well since you're already here....
    
    .........................:Film - Off the Deep End:........................(41)
    
    - Do 3 Grabs
    - Total 8s Air
    - Total 15ft Grind
    
    Start this one off on top of the halfpipe. Ollie and grind the top of the
    halfpipe for your 15 feet. Drop in, get some speed, grab, then get more speed
    and grab twice in the air. Grabs are done. You should have 5 seconds of air.
    Just ollie off the ramp each time, and you'll be good. You should finish with
    at least 5 seconds left, but it doesn't matter. 
    
    After you're done, exit the warehouse. We're off to play a little S.K.A.T.E.!
    
    .........................:S.K.A.T.E. - Mail Order:........................(42)
    
    I hate this. I really do. It is so hard to pull off difficult tricks over these
    things. Just mix it up. I recommend ollie 360s, pop shuvit 360s, and kickflip
    360s. Nollies are good too. 
    
    New Challenges: Photo - P.O.T.E.
    
    .............................:Photo - P.O.T.E.:...........................(43)
    
    - Sequence on top of shelter
    - Get 400 Points
    
    Start off with two pushes, then ollie over the blue thing, pulling off a 540
    as you go. Land it, pick a photo, and enjoy your cover. Takes a few tries, but
    you'll get it.
    
    New Challenges: Film - Sponsor Film
    
    ............................:Film - Sponsor Film:.........................(44)
    
    - Get 2,500 Points
    
    You can do this right from where you are. Just grind the curbs and fliptrick
    out. I got 3,400 points from one grind. It's really easy.
    
    New Challenges: Film - Major Malfunction, Film - 11 O'Clock News, Film - Be the
    Board, Film - Metal Detector, Film - Elbow Jam, Film - Sick Day, Photo - Hole
    in the Wall, Photo - Manny Madness, S.K.A.T.E. - Pro SKATE - P-Rod,
    Best Trick - Matrix Madness
    
    ...........................:Photo - Manny Madness:........................(45)
    
    - Skate both boxes
    - Do 2 Manuals
    
    Start off with three pushes, ollie up onto the box, land in a nose manual,
    ollie onto the next box, and then land in a nose manual. Nose manuals are
    easier because you don't have to land all 4 wheels ahead of the box on the
    jump, just the two you're using to nose manual. This isn't too bad.
    
    ..........................:Film - Major Malfunction:......................(46)
    
    - Get 3,000 Points
    - Do 4 Grinds
    - Total 60ft Grind
    
    Start this one in the road. Grind the curb over and over again to pull this one
    off easily.
    
    ...........................:Film - Metal Detector:........................(47)
    
    - Get 4,000 Points
    
    Again, just grind the curb and fliptrick back on. Very very easy.
    
    ..............................:Film - Elbow Jam:..........................(48)
    
    - Get 4,250 Points
    - Do a 45ft Grind
    - Manual to Fliptrick to Grind
    
    Use the curb once more for this one. Preferably a downhill place, too. Start
    off with the manual to fliptrick to grind on the curb, then hop off. Get some
    speed, then grind for as long as you can until you're forced off. That should
    get you the 45 foot grind you need. Now, just fliptrick into and out of grinds
    on the curb. This one's pretty hard.
    
    New Challenges: Photo - New Jack
    
    ..............................:Photo - New Jack:..........................(49)
    
    - Gap the Alley
    
    VERY EASY. Just push three times and bust a huge fliptrick over the gap. You
    can also just ollie, but that's boring.
    
    Once you're done, head on over to Regs. You'll need to pick a wheel sponsor.
    Do it! Make sure you're using your sponsor's wheels. Now head out and get ready
    to do a little filming.
    ...........................:Film - Ghetto Blasters:.......................(50)
    
    - Do 3 Grinds
    - Do a 15ft Powerslide
    - Total 720deg Spin
    
    This is pretty easy. From Regs, just grind the curb three times, then build up
    speed down a hill and hold down on the left stick to powerslide. With enough
    speed, 15 feet is really easy. For the spins, just spin in mid air when you're
    ollieing onto the curbs to grind.
    
    A little more Thrasher action and we'll get a cover shoot, so let's go for it.
    At the bottom of your map, you'll see a Jam. Head over there.
    
    .............................:Jam - Bowl Control:.........................(51)
    
    I love bowls. I do. Anyway, the first round is laughably easy. 3,000 points
    should get you through. Just grind the edges of the bowl and fliptrick off if
    you're having trouble. The second round's a little harder, and you'll need
    around 5,000 to pull it off, but as long you throw some grabs in there, you
    should be fine.
    
    Once you win, it's time for a cover shoot. Head over to Zen Plaza.
    
    ...........................:Photo - Something Else:.......................(52)
    
    - Air the Boulders
    - Do 1 Grab
    
    Seriously? This was so easy, I actually threw in a front flip (had to brag).
    Just time your ollie and grab. Woo.
    
    Shoe sponsorship time! Head on over to Slappy's and pick a sponsor. Again, make
    sure that you're wearing your sponsor's shoes. Once you are, leave and we'll
    continue. I'd like to take this moment to point out how badass my skater looks.
    Thank you. Now let's go back to The Skateboard Mag with this challenge.
    
    .........................:Best Trick - Matrix Madness:....................(53)
    
    Round 1
    
    Here, you'll want to fliptrick onto a rail and then off. Very simple; 400
    points should get the job done.
    
    Round 2
    
    This is a hard one. Grinding is still the best way to go, however. Don't try to
    get air and pull a big trick, cause you won't get enough air. You'll need like
    700 points for this one, so try manuals in addition to fliptricks, grinds, and
    spins.
    
    Round 3
    
    At the very start of this round, hold up on the analog stick as you push to
    drop into the inside of the globe. That is where you want to be. From there,
    you can air out into a grab with a rotation into a manual, or you can just
    grind the edge and fliptrick off for decent points. 650 points is good.
    
    Once you're emerged victorious, head over to The Res for a photo shoot.
    
    ..........................:Photo - Hole in the Wall:......................(54)
    
    - Jump through the Hole
    - Get 150 Points
    
    Here you go. Push once, then time your ollie so you jump through the hole
    perfectly. Throw in a spin and a grab to ensure your point total is good.
    
    New Challenges: Pro Challenge - Technical benchmark
    
    After that, head up to the top of the map for this challenge.
    
    .....................:Pro Challenge - Technical benchmark:................(55)
    
    - On the Bench
    - FS 5-0 to FS TAIL
    
    This is annoying. First of all, if you normally ride with your feet pointed
    right, you're gonna want to go over to other side of the ledge and approach
    from there, because it needs to be a frontside combo, noit a backside one. If
    you ride with your feet pointed towards the left, then don't worry. Once you're
    facing the correct way, push only once and ollie onto the ledge. Before you
    land in the grind, hold the right analog stick down. You should have done a FS
    5-0. While you're in that 5-0, SLOWLY move the right analog stick to the right
    and hold it there. You should see your skater transitioning to a FS TAIL. This
    might take a few tries, but it's not too bad.
    
    New Challenges: Photo - Year's Best
    
    Not too far away is the Year's Best Photo Challenge. Head over to it.
    
    .............................:Photo - Year's Best:........................(56)
    
    - Gap in front of pillars 
    - Get 500 Points
    - Do 1 Grab
    
    Okay, here's how you do this. Push forward, then ollie into the pool. Make sure
    you've got speed, then jump off of the small spine in between the pillars.
    Start off with a fliptrick, throw in a grab, but most importantly, make sure
    you actually clear the gap. This'll take a few tries, but get creative. Christ
    Airs and No-Foot Airs (LT+B or RT+B) are great ways to rack up points.
    
    New Challenges: Follow Me - The Artist
    
    ............................:Follow Me - The Artist:......................(57)
    
    Follow Me challenges are retarded, really. Do you need me to hold your hand as
    you follow this guy around? I hope not. Just try not to bail. I had to retry
    this one cause I got too far ahead and couldn't find him. You have to follow
    this guy for like 15 minutes. That's not fun at all.
    
    After you complete this shitty challenge (excuse my language, young readers),
    you're then greeted by some ridiculous in-game advertising. Hey, I just
    completed a terrible challenge only to realize I did it just so I could become
    a target for Adidas' ridiculous advertising campaign. And the worst thing is,
    if you want to unlock the Art Gallery as a playable location, you have to do
    this. Ugh. Maybe I'm just in a bad mood because I hate Follow Me challenges.
    Regardless, let's move on. There's a S.K.A.T.E. challenge available, so let's
    do it.
    
    ........................:S.K.A.T.E. - Pro SKATE: P-Rod:...................(58)
    
    SKATE is one of my least favorite things in this game. It's just dumb. No
    matter how good your trick is, they have just as much of a chance of bailing
    it as they do a kickflip. One way to win this easily is by doing 540s. Yes, you
    can pull a 540 at this spot. Bust a really high ollie/nollie/fliptrick and hold
    both the left and the right analog sticks to the right. Once you get the hang
    of it, you'll feel like God. Really.
    
    New Challenges: S.K.A.T.E. - Pro SKATE: Haslam
    
    This begins a vicious cycle of completing retarded SKATE challenges against a
    wave of 15 pros. Well, now 14. Get ready for some boredom.
    
    
    ........................:S.K.A.T.E. - Pro SKATE: Haslam:..................(59)
    
    I will say this now. Save some time and learn the 540. It REALLY helps. It's
    absolutely hilarious to see what they do as they're trying to pull it off. I
    have never ever seen them actually nail the 540. It really makes you laugh at
    how dumb the AI can be sometimes. At least it speeds things up.
    
    New Challenges: S.K.A.T.E. - Pro SKATE: Dill
    
    We are not doing all of these. I can't take it, and you don't even need to do
    them to progress. They do NOTHING. I beat them all before I knew about the 540
    trick, and it was hell. Will I cover all of these stupid challenges? Yes. Do
    the 540. That's it. Okay, we're done with that. Let's film!
    
    .............................:Film - Be the Board:........................(60)
    
    - Do 5 Grabs
    - Total 10s Air
    - Total 1080deg Spin
    
    Definitely head over to the Plan B Warehouse for this one. If you don't know
    where it is, it's located at the very bottom left portion of Old Town. If you
    have the spot 'Clankity Clank' unlocked, then fast travel to it by clicking on
    its icon. The warehouse is right there. Anyways, once you're in, drop into the
    halfpipe and pull this off. It's very easy. Just grab every chance you get and
    keep doing 360s. This one shouldn't be a problem.
    
    New Challenges: Film - Sponsor Film
    
    .............................:Film - Sponsor Film:........................(61)
    
    - Get 5,000 Points
    
    That's it?! Wow. Just stay in the halfpipe, my friend. I got 5,000 points in
    19 seconds. Just bust out Christ Airs and throw in some rotations. The only
    hard part is getting the speed in time. But after that, you're done. And you'll
    unlock the final Photo challenge for The Skateboard Mag!
    
    New Challenges: Photo - The Cover
    
    ..............................:Photo - The Cover:.........................(62)
    
    - Gap Stairs
    - Get 475 Points
    
    This one's difficult. Push three times from the start, then try to align
    yourself with the stairs as much as possible. If you're cutting across the
    stairs, you're not gonna get much distance. Make sure you bust a huge ollie,
    otherwise you're gonna really mess up. I couldn't resist doing a frontflip over
    the stairs, and if you're really looking for a challenge, it makes a great
    picture.
    
    New Challenges: X Games - Skateboard Megaramp, X Games - Skateboard Street
    
    Congratulations! You've unlocked the X Games! The X Games Arena is definitely
    the best spot in the entire game. This is where it gets fun. And challenging.
    Very challenging.
    
    ..........................:X Games - Skateboard Street:...................(63)
    
    We'll start off with the easier comp, and that's the Street comp. While I say
    easier, that doesn't really mean it's easy. You'll find out.
    
    Round 1
    
    The first round is very easy. You only need around 8,000 to win it. I have one
    word: grind. Just grind and fliptrick out. If you get air, grab and rotate. 
    You'll definitely want to grind though. There are a lot of great spots to grind
    here, and you can easily get a 3x multiplier off of the first jump.
    
    Round 2
    
    This is just a Best Trick comp on the rail and the ledges. Just grind the
    middle rail and fliptrick out with a rotation. I got 882 points by doing that,
    and you really only should need maybe 500 at the most. This is too easy.
    
    Round 3
    
    Another Best Trick comp, except this one's on the funbox. This is a little
    harder, and you might need over 800 points to win this one. Try getting some
    air off of the ramp, doing a grab with a 360 rotation, landing on a rail, then
    fliptricking out. You have time, don't worry.
    
    Round 4
    
    This final Best Trick comp is really hard. I didn't beat this one on my first
    try like the others. Really, if you can get on a rail and bust out a crazy
    fliptrick into a manual or something like that, you should have it, but even
    second place counts for something.
    
    After you're done, rejoice! You just got a gold in X-Games Street! But now,
    here comes the hardest challenge in the game: Megaramp. Get ready.
    
    ..........................:X Games - Skateboard Megaramp:..................(64)
    
    This is, like I said, by far the hardest challenge in the game. What can you
    do? Well, start off with one push, then get ready for your first jump. I am
    going to try to recommend you some great tricks here, but you're going to have
    to be fast to do them. Try a 360 Hardflip or a 360 Inward Heelflip here, then
    go right to a Christ or No-Foot Air and throw in a 720. Once you land, bust out
    another one of them, except make it a 900. This got me an 85.14, but if you do
    better, you can easily get into the 95+ range. My highest is a 97. I'm pretty
    sure an 85 will do the trick here, so that's what you're shooting for.
    
    If you did it, congratulations! You can now skate at the X Games whenever you
    want! This will really really help for Film challenges. Speaking of which, head
    up to the Megaramp now and start up the Hit and Run challenge.
    
    ..............................:Film - Hit and Run:........................(65)
    
    - Get 1,750 Points
    - Do a 30ft jump
    - Do a 15ft Powerslide
    
    How much easier could this get? 30 foot jump? Check. The rest is easy. Here's
    why: Get a little speed, do a Christ Air with zero rotation off of the first
    jump, hold it for 2 seconds, then land and do a powerslide. You win.
    
    Well, the only film challenges we have left need to be done in No-Skate Zones,
    unfortunately. So let's do some other stuff. Right near the entrance to the X
    Games you'll find a Photo challenge.
    
    .............................:Photo - Rainbow Rail:.......................(66)
    
    - Clear the Gap
    - Get 350 Points
    - Do 1 Grind
    
    While it may be a little unclear as to WHERE the gap actually is, I'm here to
    tell you that it's actually the curvy rail linking the two sides. Get a lot of
    speed and grind. If all goes well, you should get 350 points just for grinding
    it. 
    
    Now that you're done with that, you can head over to Old Town for this Photo
    challenge.
    
    .............................:Photo - Over the Wall:......................(67)
    
    - Get over the wall
    - Get 250 Points
    - Do 1 Grab
    
    This one's not too bad. Push three times, then ollie once you hit the ground's
    highest point. Pull a 360 grab over the wall (make sure you tweak it with the
    right stick) and you're good. 
    
    Oh wow! A No-Skate Zone! Perfect. While we're here, what say we do a little
    filming?
    
    .............................:Film - Hallowed Ground:.....................(68)
    
    - Remain in a No Skate Zone
    - Get 1,500 Points
    - Do 4 Grinds
    
    Keep in mind that No-Skate Zones are marked red on your mini-map, which is
    located in the top right of your screen. Once you're in, start the challenge,
    and make sure you stay in for the whole 30 seconds. First of all, look at where
    the security guard is. If he's far away and you're still in the No-Skate Zone,
    you're good. Make sure that he's far away before you start. Once you've
    started, grind the stairs for your points and your required grinds. Just keep
    on grinding and fliptricking out. 1,500 points is nothing.
    
    Well, we still have some Film challenges left, so let's go.
    
    
    ..............................:Film - Sight Unseen:.......................(69)
    
    - Remain in a No Skate Zone
    - Get 2,000 Points
    - NOSE MANUAL to Fliptrick to NOSE MANUAL
    
    This is just like the last one, except now, you need to nose manual to
    fliptrick, then land in another nose manual. To do this, hold up on the right
    stick, do a fliptrick, then, before you land, hold up on the right stick. Once
    that's taken care of, grind the stairs for 2,000 points this time. Not too bad.
    
    New Challenges: Photo - Hall of Meat
    
    You have now unlocked a Hall of Meat shot for Thrasher! In my opinion, this is
    one of the most fun challenges in the entire game. Enjoy.
    
    ..............................:Photo - Hall of Meat:......................(70)
    
    - Break 4 Bones
    
    What a great challenge this is. Really. So, first off, push a few times, and
    once you get to the start of the hill, stop and place a session marker. This
    is so that you won't have to load after each jump. Now let's get started. Push
    a few times, then cut left and ollie off of the jump towards the tree. Ideally,
    you want to hit the tree, but it's unnecessary. The easiest way to complete
    this challenge is by holding a Christ or No-Foot Air until you bail. It really
    works well. However, I definitely think you should experiment a little; this is
    really a lot of fun. Just do flips and grabs and rotations and bail. Too fun.
    
    New Challenges: Pro Challenge - Rattray Over The Board
    
    Once you've recovered, head over to your new challenge in the Suburbs.
    
    .....................:Pro Challenge - Rattray Over The Board:.............(71)
    
    - Over the diving board
    - Do 1 Grab
    - Get 500 Points
    
    First off, spend some time getting acquainted with what you need to do. Make
    sure to gain some speed, then, when you're ready, come in at an angle, grab,
    spin, and then tweak your grab with the right stick. Tweaking will help
    immensely, but if you spin enough, it isn't necessary. Make sure you land in
    the pool on your way down and you're done.
    
    New Challenges: S.K.A.T.E - Pro SKATE: Rattray
    
    Ready? Good. Let's move on over to Old Town for a Deathrace.
    
    ........................:Deathrace - Hell's Bowels:.......................(72)
    
    This is such a great race. First off, you're gonna want to ollie onto the ledge
    in front of you. Proceed through the sewers and try not to ride up too high on
    the pipes. You'll come to another set of ledges. Ollie onto one again and go
    back in the sewers. Quick note: Don't stop pushing unless you're getting ready
    to ollie. Now, once you emerge from the sewer, quickly move to the extreme left
    or right, depending on which side you're closer to. This way, you'll avoid the
    jumps in the middle, which can very easily throw you off and lose you the race.
    Now keep pushing and get ready to ollie. Again, don't stay in the middle, as
    the ramps you need to go off of are on the left and right. Bust a huge ollie
    off the ramp, then cross the finish line. That's why this race is so good.
    
    Well, we have nothing left to do in Old Town, unless you want to do a Pro
    SKATE, in which case, you're crazy. Head over to the Library in Downtown using
    your map. It's time for a Photo Challenge.
    
    ..........................:Photo - Manual Labour:.........................(73)
    
    - Manual Entire Ledge
    - Do 2 Flip Tricks
    
    This is incredibly easy. Simply fliptrick onto the brown ledge in front of you
    (aim for the left, the ledge isn't as wide as you might think) and land in a
    manual. Once you get to the bottom, fliptrick out of your manual and land. See?
    Pretty damn easy.
    
    Now, as you can see, we've two Deathraces to complete. Head over to PJ's
    Mansion in the Suburbs and let's get started.
    
    ........................:Deathrace - Miss The Bus:........................(74)
    
    This race is pretty straightforward, and like most races, pretty easy. Keep an
    eye on the map so you know when to turn, and again, don't stop pushing. You
    really shouldn't have any problem with this, as most of the race takes place
    on the same road. Provided you don't fall more than three times, you've got
    this under control.
    
    New Challenges: Photo - Lunatic Fringe
    
    Cover shot time! The challenge isn't too far away, so you can just skate there,
    but if you're lazy like me, just use your map. 
    
    .........................:Photo - Lunatic Fringe:.........................(75)
    
    - Gap down to the parkade
    - Do 1 Grab 
    - Do 1 Flip Trick 
    
    Start off with four pushes, then get ready to fliptrick and grab. I just did a
    kickflip into a Mute. Really, all you're doing is using a fliptrick to get the
    air you need, then holding the right trigger for a second. Easy cover shot.
    
    New Challenges: Film - Sponsor Film
    
    Pick your photo, then head over to any road and let's do this Sponsor Film.
    
    ..........................:Film - Sponsor Film:...........................(76)
    
    - Get 3,500 Points
    
    Get some speed, then start up the challenge. Try fliptricking into a manual,
    then fliptricking out into a grind on the curb. That right there's worth over
    a thousand points. Just keep busting out fliptricks into grinds and
    fliptricking out. You'll get 3,500 in no time.
    
    New Challenges: Film - Road Rash, Film - Bonecracka, Film - Public Disturbance,
    Film - Mountain Man, Film - Keep Rollin', Film -  4 Wheelin', Deathrace - The
    Burbs to the Zen, Deathrace - Old Town Massacre, Deathrace - DIY Slam, Photo -
    Hop Scotch, Photo - Picnic Table Blast, Jam - Boom Slang!, Jam - Clean Da Pipes
    
    Where to begin? Well, I like Jams. Let's do a Jam! This one's in the Suburbs.
    
    ..........................:Jam - Clean Da Pipes:..........................(77)
    
    This isn't too bad. Halfpipes are always great ways to get points. Start off by
    skating over to the left end of the halfpipe so that you don't run into people
    as they respawn. Now just do some easy fliptricks and spins, nothing too fancy.
    Once you start to get some real air, go for a Christ Air. You don't need to
    spin or even hold it that long, just make sure it registers. Christ Airs are
    great for getting 3x multipliers, so once you get one, just do a variety of
    fliptricks and throw some spins in there. You'll get great points no matter
    what you do, as long as you don't repeat tricks. Aim for 11,000. That should
    win you the challenge.
    
    It's almost time for another cover story already! Let's do another Jam. This
    one is also in the Suburbs, and it's actually pretty close to where we are.
    
    ............................:Jam - Boom Slang:............................(78)
    
    This is a relatively easy Jam, but there's really no way to get big scores at
    this spot. So, what you're gonna do is fliptrick onto the benches located
    around the area. Get some air off of the curves, grab, fliptrick, and grind. 
    You're gonna need around 2,500 points for the first round and 3,200 for the
    second round, which isn't that bad at all.
    
    New Challenges: Photo - heads
    
    Another cover shot! This is almost getting too easy. This challenge is also
    pretty close to where we're at, so you can just skate there.
    
    .............................:Photo - heads:..............................(79)
    
    Easiest. Challenge. Ever. Get some speed, ride around the side of the pool,
    then grind the area of the coping with the graffiti on it. 6 feet never seemed
    so easy. 
    
    Only two covers left! We're rapidly approaching the end of the game, so let's
    keep going. It's now time to head over to Slappy's, where you'll be picking a
    new truck sponsor. Once you've picked one and exited the shop, you'll get a new
    challenge.
    
    New Challenges: Pro Challenge - Chalmers Transfer
    
    This new challenge is really close to you, but it's surrounded by walls, so
    don't worry about looking for the entrance; just use your map.
    
    ...................:Pro Challenge - Chalmers Transfer:....................(80)
    
    - Transfer thru the window
    - Get 600 Points
    
    Start off with two pushes, then get ready to ollie. Approach the jump at an
    angle so that you're facing the window, then ollie up and grab. Make sure you
    throw in at least a 360, and you should get the 600 points you need. This is a
    pretty easy challenge; 600 points isn't bad at all. 
    
    Now, while we're in this place, why not go for the Deathrace located just
    outside?
    
    .........................:Deathrace - DIY Slam:...........................(81)
    
    Three laps of fun! This race may take a few tries, so first off, what you need
    to do is find out where you're going. For the first lap, just follow the guy
    in first. When you see the pipe, head straight for it, but make sure to grab
    your board (don't ollie, just grab while on the ground) so that you can fit
    under the pipe. Let go once you've passed under it. From there, the gates are
    a bit simpler. Luckily, the 3 laps can help you make a comeback if you mess up,
    so you shouldn't have that much trouble with this race.
    
    Well, we've been here for a while now, so let's move over to the Photo
    Challenge just a bit north of your location.
    
    ......................:Photo - Picnic Table Blast:........................(82)
    
    - Blast over the gap
    - Get 600 Points
    
    This one's not too easy. Start off with three pushes, then fliptrick onto the
    picnic table and grind. Fliptrick off really fast, and try to spin. If you can,
    throw in a grab. If you grind on the right (I mean the direction right) part of
    the picnic table, you can jump off and land on the ledge across the gap, which
    makes for a great grind and pretty much guarantees you 600 points.
    
    Well, we've only got one Photo Challenge left, so head over to the Suburbs and
    let's finish it.
    
    ......................:Photo - Picnic Table Blast:........................(83)
    
    - Sequence the islands
    - Get 440 Points
    
    Start off with 4 pushes, then ollie across the first gap and land in a manual.
    Make sure you keep your speed in the manual; don't push the right stick down
    too far. From the manual, fliptrick into a grind on the ledge just ahead, then
    fliptrick out. You should easily have the 440 points and another challenge
    under your belt.
    
    Only one more challenge to go before you get another cover shot! Head to the
    No-Skate Zone just ahead. This is where you'll be starting your next Film
    Challenge.
    
    ..........................:Film - 4 Wheelin':.............................(84)
    
    - Remain in a No Skate Zone
    - Get 5,500 Points
    
    This one's hard, but if you can really fliptrick out of grinds well, then this
    won't be so bad. The gray curb in the middle with the red rail on it is great
    for this. Keep grinding, fliptricking, and spinning. 5,500 points is a lot,
    but with a little bit of practice, this won't be so bad. 
    
    New Challenges: Photo - Contents Spread
    
    Another cover shot! Head over to Downtown and let's get going.
    
    .......................:Photo - Contents Spread:..........................(85)
    
    - Ride the Hubba
    - Do 1 Grind
    
    This is ridiculously easy. Push a few times, the ollie into a grind on the part
    that descends to your left. You're done. Yeah, it's that easy.
    
    New Challenges: Pro Challenge - Duffy Double-Kink
    
    Pick a photo, then head over to your new challenge. We've only got one cover
    shot left!
    
    ..................:Pro Challenge - Duffy Double-Kink:.....................(86)
    
    - Grind the Rail
    - Do a 51ft Grind
    
    Start off by heading around the stairs to your left, and continue around until
    you see two sets of stairs. Place a session marker here by holding LB and
    pressing down on the D-Pad. Head up the ramp in between these stairs and head
    right, towards the rail. Make sure you don't get taken out by the security
    guard, then ollie onto the rail and grind down. If you mess up, just hold LB
    and press up on the D-Pad to head over to the ramp, that way you're a little
    closer to the rail (you can't place session markers in No-Skate Zones). Make
    sure you don't jump off; you need 51 feet in one grind. 
    
    New Challenges: Pro Challenge - Rob and Big 
    
    Now it is time for the hardest challenge in the game, in my opinion. Good luck.
    
    .....................:Pro Challenge - Rob and Big:........................(87)
    
    - On the Bench
    - 360 FLIP tO FS CROOKED
    
    First off, jump on the bench and hold B to stop. Quickly place a session marker
    so that you can keep respawning on the bench, which makes everything so much
    easier. Not that it's easy at all anyway. Well, you're going to want to look up
    the tricks you need to do in your trick book. Make sure you're facing the right
    way, and then try each one separately. Keep in mind that you NEED to do a FS
    Crooked, and ONLY that will count. Also, you need to do that FS Crooked
    DIRECTLY after the 360 Flip. Anything else won't count. One more thing: if you
    can't go directly into the FS Crooked, you're not horizontal enough.
    
    Congratulations! You beat the hardest challenge in the game! Well done! Now,
    let's get started on that cover shot. Jump down a level and start up this Film
    Challenge.
    
    ............................:Film - Road Rash:............................(88)
    
    - Remain in a No Skate Zone
    - Get 4,000 Points
    - Do 6 Grinds
    
    Start this one at the beginning of the long yellow rail. Slowly grind it and
    keep on fliptricking back on; you should get around 4 or 5 grinds. Now grind
    it again twice, and start going for points. You'll have no problem getting the
    4,000 points if you pull off 360 Hardflips and Inward Heelflips.
    
    We've got two Deathraces left, so head over to Old Town and we'll do the first
    one.
    
    ......................:Deathrace - Old Town Massacre:.....................(89)
    
    This is an incredibly difficult race. Start off by heading over to the sidewalk
    over to the left and head through the gate there. Stay on the left side, and
    ignore the gates on the right side, even if they're green; it won't matter as
    long as you don't miss any more after that. Once you start seeing bigger gates,
    you're past the hard part. Just keep pushing and try to avoid traffic; this one
    is not easy.
    
    So close to the cover and you've already beaten the hardest challenges this
    game can throw at you! Now let's finish the last Deathrace over in the Suburbs.
    
    .....................:Deathrace - The Burbs to the Zen:...................(90)
    
    This one's pretty straightforward. DON'T GO ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE ROAD. This
    is a long road race, and you will get hit by cars. So as long as you don't get
    hit by a car, you won't have a problem with this event.
    
    New Challenges: Film - Sponsor Film
    
    You should still be on the road, so start up your last Sponsor Film.
    
    ...........................:Film - Sponsor Film:..........................(91)
    
    - Get 6,000 Points
    
    You've done this a million times already. Get some speed, fliptrick into a
    grind on the curb, fliptrick out. Repeat. This is way too easy.
    
    New Challenges: Photo - Skater of the Year
    
    This is it, your final cover shot. Here we go!
    
    ........................:Photo - Skater of the Year:......................(92)
    
    - Hit the outside edge
    - Do 2 Flip Tricks
    - Do 1 Grind
    
    Here it is, your final challenge. And it seems easy! But it's not. What you
    want to do is push a few times, fliptrick onto the inside, not the outside, and
    THEN fliptrick into a grind on the outside. If you need to, fliptrick out and
    land on the stone walkway. You're done!
    
    New Challenges: Jam - Mega-Mayhem
    
    Now all that's left is the Jam at the Mega Compound. It's over in the Suburbs.
    
    ............................:Jam - Mega-Mayhem:...........................(93)
    
    This is a great Jam. Maybe even the best. The Megaramp here is great for Christ
    Airs, so you'll definitely want to bust them out. A score of about 12,000
    should win you each round. Ideally, you'll want to pull off a Christ Air 720
    off the Megaramp and another one off the ramp following it. That should net you
    about 6,000 points right there. Do that twice, and you've got the round.
    
    Not only that, but you beat the freaking game! Niiiiiiiiiiice. You'll notice
    that now, all of your old Film Challenges you didn't beat are back, and you
    still have quite a few to go. But they're all just extras. Extras that I will
    cover in later updates! So for now, enjoy the guide! It's finally done.
