====================================== Skate by EA Black Box FAQ/Walkthrough= by Nate Edwards = October 26th, 2007 = Version 1.1 = ====================================== ========= Contents= ========= Introduction------------------1.0 Controls----------------------2.0 Challenges and Contest Types--3.0 Career Missions Walkthrough---4.0 Tutorials----------------4.1 Skateboard Mag-----------4.2 Thrasher Magazine--------4.3 Pro Challenges-----------4.4 Own the Spot------------------5.0 Secrets and Extra Bits--------6.0 Credits-----------------------7.0 ================== 1.0- Introduction= ================== This is a guide to the EA video game Skate (or skate or skate.) from the PS3 point of view by Nate Edwards, KingPenguin7 GameFaqs ID, KingPenguin1029 PS3 ID, written to inform and potentially win a $60 gift certificate from the Bounty board on GameFaqs. I love this game, and really consider it worthy of an FAQ to ease the troubles of the message boards. Not at all complete or formatted how I'd like it to be, (particularly the walkthrough bit), but I'd like to get the information up on the site, and an update should be through shortly to get the walkthrough formatted nicely. _______________________________ Changelog October 22, 2007- 0.10 Start of FAQ, most missions have walkthroughs, own the spot section complete, controls and game concepts stable though not necessarily finished October 24, 2007- 0.90 Pro Challenges complete, Skateboard Mag complete, walkthrough now organized sanely. October 25, 2007- 1.0 Walkthrough complete, table of contents organized and in a stable, complete state. October 26, 2007- 1.1 Capitalization now consistent, one small error fixed about Dem Bonez thanks to Chris Holmes. _______________________________ ============== 2.0- Controls= ============== This is considered a unique game mainly due to its emphasis on reality and its controls based on the analog sticks. Where as in Tony Hawk games you would simply press the X button to do an ollie, here you must move the right analog stick down to the bottom, then flick it up to the top. Flip tricks are formed by combinations of right analog stick movements to various sides, which can be found in a much easier to understand format either in your trick book in the game or, if you simply must see it online, at http://helpmewithmygameproblems.com/images/a/a1/SKATETRICKS.pdf that pdf. They're meant for the Xbox 360, but clearly left trigger = L2, right trigger = R2, and B = the circle button. That comes from www.helpmewithmygameproblems.com, not me, but they've got a great guide image- wise at their site. You push with either the X button or square button, X being for your right foot and square for your left, regardless of whether your character is meant to push regular or mongo. Manuals are done by holding the right stick part-way down, or up for nose manuals. You can land in manuals by holding your stick in the correct position while landing. Any flip trick for your manual position (i.e. they have to nollie flip tricks for a nose manual, and ollie ones for a manual) can be done out of a manual if you quickly do the motion with the stick from the position. Trust me on that, any flip trick can be done, even if it may seem you can only do shuvits and kick/heelflips. Spins and backflips/frontflips are controlled with the left stick, moving clearly in whatever direction you wish to spin. Spins only count in 180 degree increments as in most skating games, but you can get an extra 90 degrees of spin by turning the right stick in the direction you're spinning if you're landing sideways and need it. This is, as far as I know, the only way to do 1080 degree spins and the 540 spin S.K.A.T.E. "cheat". Grabs are done with either L2 (for your left hand), R2 (for your right), or both for a double grab. Grabs are tweaked with the right stick, giving you methods, melons, stiffies and the like. The circle button can be combined with the L2 and R2 buttons for No Foot Airs, Christ Airs, and Coffins. There are a few ways to brake in Skate: You can manual, then push all the way down with your manual for a tailstop, you can hold the circle button to brake with your foot, you can press down on the left stick for a powerslide, or you can simply slam into something and bail. Powerslides get the most points and are generally the fastest besides slamming, but can move you about too much in your steering if you have a limited space and won't work at slow speeds. Foot braking takes a while, really not effective at high speeds, reduces steering but usable at all speeds. Manual to tailstop is pretty inconvenient to do for some reason, but effective at all speeds and doesn't inhibit steering really. Slamming clearly ends your lines and can disrupt your position, needs something to slam into. Grinds don't require pressing triangle as in Tony Hawk, but you simply land on the rail or ledge or whatever is grindable. Specific grinds are done by landing in the position you must be in to grind, so if you want a specific grind of your choosing, you must use the right analog stick to adjust your board's position as detailed in that controls pdf listed above. You can also change your grind while grinding by moving the right analog stick. This is necessary for the Pro Challenge Technical Benchmark, in which you land in a 5- 0 by holding the right stick down as you land then you take the right analog stick to the left to morph your grind into a tailslide. ================================== 3.0- Challenges and Contest Types= ================================== Spot Battle- A three round competition at a specific spot (including all 20 ownable spots in the game and a few extra such as Mini Mega that can still be found in the game world) to see who among the competitors, taking turns, can do the best trick at that spot. Bails count automatically end your round. This is the most popular competition online by far, partly due to its quick gameplay, earning EXP online at least twice as fast as any other event given that every one gives the same EXP despite their length differences. Can be very embarassing as only one skater goes at a time, so everyone is watching what you do, and if they have a microphone will laugh at your mistakes. All spots are automatically unlocked online, but ownable spots must be "owned" in the career for party play offline. Not in the single player career mode specifically. Best Trick- My personal favorite. Three rounds at a particular general area (for instance, the library or the Plan B warehouse) with each round at a different specific spot. For each round every skater goes at the spot at once, causing several collisions, especially at the start. Whoever gets the best single sequence at the spot wins after about two minutes of every skater freely attacking the spot. Much longer than spot battle, but much less personal since no one's specifically watching you. Online and single player career mode only. Jam- Like best trick with everyone going at a spot at once, but involving only one spot (though perhaps with multiple identical rounds) and your CUMULATIVE score of every trick you do in your two minutes. This is online and in single player career mode. In single player Jams are extremely easy, as the computer simply doesn't match your speed in doing tricks. S.K.A.T.E.- H.O.R.S.E., but with skating, in case you're not familiar with the real-life game of S.K.A.T.E.. In single player, this is only against one other person but online can include four people total. The first guy sets a trick for the others to either copy or earn a letter in the word SKATE, with someone collecting every letter in the word losing. This only includes flip tricks and spins, grabs and grinds don't count. Online the challenge isn't very popular due to its length and the extreme potential advantage granted to people who are first or second. If you're fourth in queue for being the trick-setter, it's a miracle if you're given a chance. You can't repeat any of the last three tricks done or you lose your trick-setter status. In single player there are only two SKATE games against amateurs, Shingo and Eric, but then come the Pro SKATE challenges against all 14 pros in the game, which confers no material benefit except for the first against P-Rod, which is a Skateboard Mag mission (the rest aren't). The trick to beating the pros is to copy their stuff until they bail (they always go first) then do any tricks with 540s in them by turning both analog sticks in the direction you're turning rather than just the left one. The pros can't match it and many people online won't figure it out either if you're in a spot you can 540 on. Available online, in party play offline multiplayer, and in the single player career. Deathrace- A race with other skaters, typically down a hill, to see who can get through the red gate at the end first. There are green gates all along the way to both guide you and give you extra time on your constant time limit. The rules vary slightly between different deathraces. Some only allow a certain number of gates to not be gone through, where as others simply let the time limit convince you to go through gates. Online missing gates costs you ten seconds per gate skipped. Single player and online only. Spot Race- An online only event I haven't personally ever been in. It involves a deathrace with trick requirements, but I haven't ever found other people to play when trying to enter it (which hasn't been that many times, but I still didn't find any). Films- Films give you a maximum of three specific requirements, for instance, grind for a certain distance or remain in a no skate zone. Then you choose where you think you can do that in thirty seconds and go there and start the challenge by pressing R1 to select your film challenge then triangle to start it. Photos- At a specific place you're given a specific objective, which could involve points or a certain number of flip tricks or things like that. Follow Me- You must follow another character for a distance, staying within a certain distance from them until you reach the destination. ================================= 4.0- Career Missions Walkthrough= ================================= In career mode, you are given a widening non-linear challenge system, with a few missions you must do before you unlock a range of missions you choose from to fill up the "coverage bars" for Skateboard Mag and Thrasher Magazine. The coverage bars allow you to choose which missions you want to do, with every mission counting the same amount towards your coverage with the magazine that mission is associated with. Once the bar is filled up (or at times nearly filled), you unlock a special mission (usually a photo) for that magazine to actually get coverage in that magazine and come closer to unlocking the next tier of missions for it. Due to this non-linearity, this guide is not written in order as there is no specific order you must take beyond the first few missions. Notes are made as to what missions unlock what as the guide goes on. Note: If you can't find the Thrasher missions, chances are that you are not pressing triangle on your map to cycle through mission types. One more note: All entries in the following walkthrough followed by dashes are requirements the game will list in the bottom right corner, and should match the game exactly. =============== 4.1- Tutorials= =============== You enter your career at the community center, where you're forced to either do or skip several tutorial missions, but must do the Rolling Rehab film. Tutorial: Flickit! Learn to ollie, ollie higher, kickflip, heelflip, and pop shuvit. check the controls section for more info. Tutorial:Pushing & Timing Learn to push and time your jumps. -Push a few times -Land on the parkade things Tutorial:Air & Grabs Learn to jump off ramps and do grabs and spins.

Unlocks: SM:SKATE: S.H.I.N.G.O and Tutorial: Nollies New Assorted Brand Merchandise available Tutorial:Nollies (with Paul Rodrigez) Watch your first "pro introduction and sponsors" video then follow P-Rod around the community center, doing nollies (with tricks if you want) inside the huge cube zones along the course. No problem if you do the nollies, not a hard course to follow. -Stay within 150 ft -Nollie in all gates -Reach the lot New Playable character: Paul Rodrigez Tutorial:Manuals (with Jason Dill) Learn to flip into and out of manuals -Fliptrick into Manual -Stay in Manual -Fliptrick from Manual New Playable Character: Jason Dill Tutorial: Scoring a line (with Mike carroll) Learn about multipliers and lines at the elementary school. -Get a X1.5 multiplier to start a line -Get 800 points in a Line New Playable Character: Mike Carroll Tutorial: Advanced Grinds (with Chris Haslam) Learn flipping into and out of grinds at the elementary school. -Flip into a grind -Do a long grind -Flip out of the grind New Playable Character: Chris Haslam Tutorial: Pumping (with Danny Way) Learn to pump for speed in pipes and bowls at the community center. Unlocks: New playable character Danny Way ============================= 4.2- Skateboard Mag Missions= ============================= S.K.A.T.E.: S.H.I.N.G.O. Beat your friend Shingo easily at your introductory game of Skate. Look in Chapter 3 of this guide for more info on the game type. Unlocks: Follow Me: Follow Shingo and Tutorial: Manuals Follow Me: Follow Shingo Follow Shingo to the elementary school -Stay within 180 ft -Get to the school Unlocks SM:Photo: My first Photo!! Photo: My First Photo!! Seb takes a photo of you on the rail in front of the elementary school for coverage in SM. Session markers are introduced to you. -Hit up the stairs -Get 100 points -Do 1 grind Unlocks: SMFILM: Filming 101 Tutorial: Scoring a line Tutorial: Advanced Grinds "New Magazine T-Shirt Available" Film: Filming 101 -Get 500 points -Do 2 grinds Unlocks: SMBESTTRICK: Community Spirit! Best Trick: Community Spirit! Shingo calls you to invite you to the Best Trick contest back at the community center. Best Trick rules, not hard at all. Competitors rarely exceed 250 points. After beating it, you have to go to Regs in The Res and meet their group to see your coverage before unlocking any more main challenges. Unlocks:Tutorial:Pumping "New Band T-Shirt available" -------------------After first Coverage bar filled--------------------------- Unlocks: Jam: Jubba Jingle Jam and "Regs t-shirt" Jam: Jubba Jingle Jam Jam for 2 minutes in the Regs Skatepark. Easy, in my game 2nd place got 1800 points Unlocks: Area Regs Skate Park and Film: Regs Shop Film New band t-shirt available Film:Regs shop film -Get 1000 points. You'll almost certainly just do this in the art gallery area. Unlocks: second tier of Skateboard Mag challenges and the opening of the Thrasher challenge, Photo: Photo G. Unlocks: Jam:Poolside Chill Films: Grinding Teeth, Tapeheads, Summer of Slam, Line'em Up, Crank it, and Opinion Photo: Stack my Tables and Gap it Up S.K.A.T.E.:Mail Order Best Trick: Rail Fest Thrasher Photo:Photo G and "Assorted Brand merchandise" ------------------ Tier 2 of Skateboard Mag challenges --------------------- Film:Grinding Teeth -Get 1250 points -Do 3 grinds -Total 30ft grind I did this one at the cathedral on the many little ledges around it. Flip in and out of your grinds and you'll have plenty of time left. Film:Tapeheads -Get 1500 points -Do a 21 ft jump -manual to fliptrick to manual I did this part at the Hellavator spot at the top of the spillway run. The initial jump where the actual spot is should get you both the points and the 21 ft jump then just do the manual to fliptrick to manual at your leisure flat on the ground. Film:Line 'em Up -Get 2000 points. At your discretion where to do this one, probably easier in a skatepark or a similar area, but this can be easily done just grinding down the medians of streets in the Res. I did it outside the Plan B warehouse on different ledges and rails, but it's really not the easiest spot. Film:Opinion -Get 2250 points -Do 3 manuals -Grind to fliptrick to grind These requirements aren't entirely compatible, but can still be done nearly anywhere. If you see a grindable object with any length at all, then there's the third requirement. Three manuals can clearly be done anywhere. The 2250 points will require you to possibly do more than just one grind to fliptrick to grind combo for the points, making that likely the toughest requirement for the video. Film:Summer of Slam -Do 3 grabs -8s of air -Total 720 deg spin I did this in Regs Skatepark, Just jump and grab and spin for every move, you should have plenty of time if you're in an area with real ramps. Film:Crank It -Get 2000 points -Do a 30ft grind -Total 540 deg spin I always like doing the long grind films down the median of the road just up the hill from Regs. That's where I did this. Combined with fliptricks, the grind should get you nearly all the points, at least giving you a multiplier to get them. Just spin with three different moves to get the spins. Photo:Gap it Up A tricky gap, really one of the hardest photos for me. You need a good flip trick over a hard gap here with a long ride-up to it, so it takes time to try over and over. -Clear the Gap -Get 300 points I ended up doing a fakie laser flip cab 360. Pretty tough for a beginner, I've got to say. It got 439 points I think. Multipliers are turned off for this challenge. S.K.A.T.E.:Mail Order See rules of Skate. It's against Eric, not a pro so not especially hard. Don't try the 540 cheat, there's not enough room for it here. Hardest trick Eric did against me: 360 pop shuvit 360 Best Trick:Rail Fest Library Best Trick contest with no security. Highest scores from my opponents when I played: Round 1:617 Round 2:233 Round 3:481 New Band t-shirt available Best Trick:Preparation B Plan B warehouse best trick contest. Only 2 opponents. Highest enemy scores: Round 1:821 Round 2:656 Round 3:427 New band t-shirt available Photo:Stack My Tables -Get 400 Points -Do 1 Grind -Do 1 Flip Trick This is at a stack of picnic tables at the elementary school. It doesn't really take very tough flip tricks, but flipping in and out will help. Jam:Poolside Chill Your "first" (not necessarily your first) pool jam. Just three people, and jams are always easy as long as you don't bail more than a few times. Just keep your tricks varied, keep your multiplier, and don't worry about doing specific unbeatable tricks when you can do a bunch of small ones. Only tricks that start of end in the pool count. Highest opponent score: 7,894 New Band T-shirt available --------------------After second coverage bar filled------------------------- Unlocks: Photo:Storefront Another coverage photo for the Skateboard Mag, this one to be a storefront photo for Reg's. You must land on the ledge next to the rails from the art gallery area, doing a manual on it, then gapping out into the street. If you're up to speed, the gap part won't be a problem, but rather simply the manual if you still don't have landing in a manual down yet. Hopefully Jason Dill's Manual tutorial got that into you. Just land with your right stick slightly back in the manual position, then flick it up at the end of the ledge to ollie out (no fancy fliptricks necessary). Unlocks: All pro challenges: Smith Securigrind, P-Rod Tech to Hubba, Busenitz Wall Gap, Cole Gap to Grind, Ali Bridge Plunge, TK's Rail Challenge, Carroll's Challenge, Hsu's Eduskate, Dill Kinked Manny, and Haslam Bump to Bar New Band T-Shirt available After this challenge, you must complete a pro challenge to get your board sponsor. The first one you beat isn't necessarily the one you have to pick, but I'd recommend searching on your map for which challenge is for your sponsor preference (it always mentions the board sponsor it unlocks in the description of the challenge after you select a challenge on your map.) all other challenges are locked to you until you get your board sponsor. -----------------------After third coverage bar filled----------------------- Unlocks:Photo: Who the Hell Is? -Ledge to middle rail -Do 1 flip trick -Do 1 grind A sort of tough blind gap from a ledge to the middle rail on a huge stairset. No points requirement, so any flip and any grind will do. This is for your 3rd coverage in SM. Unlocks:Gallant Step up pro challenge New Magazine T-shirt available --------------------------After fourth coverage bar filled------------------- Unlocks: Photo:P.O.T.E. -Sequence on top of shelter -Get 400 points Product of the environment for Skateboard Mag coverage. A lot of people have trouble with this one, and I have before too. You have to jump off of a very small and uneven sidewalk bend kicker and jump up to either a grind or manual on top of the bus stop for the photo. 400 points does actually require a bit, you can't just ollie up there and grind. The ramp is very awkward, sometimes sending you straight forward and about 1 in 10 times works just right to send you up on that bus stop. There's some strange timing you'll have to get used to with it. I did a nollie kickflip 360 to manual, because it's hard to get enough jump out of a tough flip trick. Unlocks: SMFILM:Sponsor Film, and a new band t-shirt Your sponsor rep pro will call you saying the team is making a new video, so you have to film a generic 2500 point video to go on with your Skateboard Mag challenges. Film: Sponsor Film -Get 2500 points can be done anywhere, clearly, but a skatepark is still probably easiest. I just did it at the basketball court near P.O.T.E.'s challenge because I was there, but it's not recommended at all. You get a video of the group at Regs extolling your skating virtues directly after beating it. Unlocks: Third tier of SM challenges: FILMS: Major Malfunction, 11 O'Clock News, Be the Board, Metal Detector, Elbow Jam, Sick Day Photos: HOLE IN THE WALL and Manny Madness SKATE: PRo SKATE - P-Rod BESTTRICK: Matrix Madness Assorted Brand Merchandise "Awarded 1st Pro model" which means you unlock a deck from your sponsor, it's not actually custom. You're a pro now. Yay! -----------------------------Third tier of challenges------------------------ Film: Major Malfunction -Get 3000 points -Do 4 grinds -Total 60ft grind I did this right at the Carroll pro challenge ledges. Just get somewhere that you can keep jumping onto and grinding with enough speed to get some grind distance. Flip in and out for the points. Don't bail. Simple. Photo:Hole in the Wall You must jump through a very awkward hole, WHILE doing a crazy fliptrick. This challenge sucks. I did a nolle FS 360 shuvit 180. You'll have to get used to the curvature of the ground in front of it. I'd suggest rolling down the hill you're given then keeping straight rather than adjusting before you get to the hole, because the area in front of the hole is bent towards the right, so you'll come right to the hole if you just stay straight the way you were. -Jump through the Hole -Get 150 points Photo:Manny Madness Here you have to manual across two boxes in a row, or at least skate both and do 2 manuals, if you can find a way around that. I hear that this can be easier if you attack it from the opposite side that the game sets you up for it, because then you won't have to make any big jumps just to get on the boxes. I personally don't like that, and can't do it that way. This has caused some people trouble on the online forums. -Skate both Boxes -Do 2 manuals Best Trick: Matrix Madness A no security best trick at the Matrix against pros. Others' best scores: Round 1:438 Round 2:735 Round 3:621 New band t-shirt available S.K.A.T.E.: Pro SKATE- P-Rod Beat P-Rod at S.K.A.T.E., using the 540 trick of turning both sticks to spin, and you'll get SM coverage, and unlock the tedious Pro SKATE missions, which won't benefit you any. Haslam is next. Film:Metal Detector -Get 4000 points As always, can be done anywhere theoretically. I did it on the Plan B warehouse halfpipe with several flip to grab combinations. Photo:Year's Best -Gap in front of pillars -Get 500 points -Do 1 grab You have to gap the transition over the little hump in front of the pillars in the pool at PJ Ladd's mansion. A backflip or frontflip should basically guarantee you make it. I did a nosebone backflip to beat it. Unlocks:Follow Me: The Artist New Magazine T-shirt available Film:Be the Board -Do 5 grabs -Get total 10s air -Total 1080 deg spin I did this at PJ Ladd's mansion pool, just keep grabbing and spinning in a place with consistent air opportunities. No score requirement. Film:Elbow Jam -Get 4250 points -Do a 45ft grind -Manual to fliptrick to grind I love to do this sort of video at the median just up the hill from Regs, as you may have already found out. Just get on top of the median, get in a manual, and flip into a grind on the median. If that one wasn't quite 45ft, the next one will be due to your speed. For the points, flip in with spins, flip out with some too from your grinds. Multipliers after your 45ft grind should give the points to you somewhat easily. Film:Sick Day -Get 4,500 Points -Do 6 Grinds -Total 1080 deg spin I did this at a long ledge outside the elementary school. Find an area with consistent grinds, do a nice combo worth a times 3 multiplier, and do enough spins, and this should be yours eventually. Film:11 'o Clock News -Get 3,250 Points -Do a 24 ft jump -Grind to Fliptrick to Manual Still easiest to do a big jump one at the X Games mega ramp. YOu probably won't have unlocked it yet, but I just let this one sit until I beat the game (you don't have to beat every challenge to do it). Otherwise, you can still find jumps that big at other places, possibly helped by the grab exploit listed in the secrets section. The points and third requirement are still a problem after you find the jump, though, so it's a pretty tough challenge without a mega ramp. You'll have plenty of time to mosey to the street course for the third requirement there. -------------------------After fifth coverage bar filled--------------------- Photo: New Jack For more SM coverage, you have to gap an alleyway. no tricks necessary, but they'll look cooler in the magazine. The gap's sort of tough. If you don't try anything fancy and time your jump right, you'll be fine. Try to land at the lower part, not to your left. New band t-shirt available Wheel sponsorship, head to Regs to claim it. ------------------------Nearly filled sixth coverage bar--------------------- Skateboard Mag Pro Challenge:Technical Benchmark PJ Ladd is opening up his new mansion in the upper left corner of the map, and you have to do an FS 5-0 to tail on a bench to unlock the area for you and keep on with the Skateboard Mag challenges. You must be either goofy or switch normal to do this, (or do a 180 into it, but why would you?) because this has to be FS. A lot of people online have trouble with this, but just stay at a slow speed, facing the bench, land with the stick back for the 5-0, then drag it left to switch into a tailslide midway. Unlocks:SMPHOTO:Year's Best for coverage Unlocks PJ Ladd, his gear, and the mansion pool ------------------------Seventh coverage bar nearly filled------------------- Film:Sponsor Film All other SM challenges are locked, so do that sponsor film now. WHerever you like, just get 5000 points. Again, skatepark halfpipes and big grind like the one I just did at the median outside Regs can do this for you. Just get the points. You get another yay for you video of the Regs gang praising your video part. Unlocks Photo:The Cover Photo: The Cover Gap down a 22 set for the cover and the end of SKateboard Mag missions (except the few you didn't finish to get here, because you don't actually have to beat them all to get to this point, but they're not necessary anyway.) I did a nollie triple kickflip 540, which got 756 points, way more than needed. Just line up perpendicular with the stairs so you have the shortest distance to jump, otherwise you'll land on the stairs. Time your jump well, and get more pop by trying a simpler flip motion. -Gap Stairs -Get 475 points Unlocks:XGames: Skateboard Megaramp and Skateboard Street and the Mega compound if you've beaten the Thrasher cover already. ========================= 4.3- Thrasher Challenges= ========================= Photo: Photo G First Thrasher mission, a photo at the cathedral corner ledge. -Get to the ledge curve -Get 400 points -Do 1 grind Unlocks:THFILM:First Things First New Playable Characters Sammy and Mike New Magazine T-shirt available Film:First Things FIrst -Stay in a No-skate zone -get 1000 points Unlocks: THFOLLOWME:Follow Freeway I just did it at the cathedral, no trouble, just get the points without getting hit by the security guard or bailing. Follow Me:Follow Freeway Meet Freeway and follow him in a long hill bomb to the Thrasher oriented skate shop Slappy's. Watch out for cars. Probably the toughest follow me mission, though the Gonz's later is much longer. The course can vary here, but you're always going to end up at slappy's. You see your first Thrasher photo here. -Stay within 210 ft -Get to Slappy's Unlocks:Deathrace:Race to Slappy's New playable character slappy Slappy's T-shirt Skate Shop Slappy's Deathrace:Race to Slappy's Amateur deathrace down to Slappy's. Go through the gates for more time, but they're not required beyond your time limit. Follow the road and you'll be fine (trying any shortcuts will tend to yield bad results. Trust me, no matter how twisty the road is around that 3rd gate, just go down the road seciton) Unlocks DIY Skatepark Unlocks:First tier of Thrasher challenges: Films:Hallowed Ground, Hit and Run, Sight Unseen, Off the Deep End, Ghetto Blasters, Churning Buddha Deathraces unlocked: Hell's Bowels, Dead End Bomb, Miss the Bus Photos unlocked: Rainbow Rail, MANUAL LABOR, OVER THE WALL Jam unlocked: Bowl Control New playable character: Freeway
