    Triple Towers: Go on the blue ramp. Do not press A, and make a sharp turn to the orange ramp. Press A and jump on three narrow islands. Once you get to the third, you will get 1,000 points and skateboard off it to the ground.

    Dr. Shemp and Toasty: Go to the mega ramp as you would for the mega pointer. However this time, do a roll on either side four times. You should get 1,000 points.

Go to the blue ramp beside the circle one, go up it (do not press A), make a turn right, and go to the orange ramp. Press A two times, jump to the first, jump to the second, and jump to the third. You will be rewarded when you reach the last island (1,000 points). Go the way you did at the start of the game, but this time, go up the ramp, then down the hill. When you get to the blue base, press A and spin left four to five times (2,000 points). Go up the ramp, go down again, and spin right four to five times (2,000 points). Then, go up the ramp yet again, and go down a final time. This time (do not press A), fly off the end, then press A. Hold Down/Left + A until you approach the ground (4,900 points). You will do a series of twisted limes or lemons. You should have over 10,000 points at this time. You will have time remaining which can be used for more tricks.
