Slalom Pool

Snake Run Slalom

The slalom takes place on the wiggly blue slope. At certain intervals there will be pairs of cones you have to get through on the left and right hand sides. There are 3 runs and they get progressively harder. It will probably take a few runs to get the hang of it, the third run is a bit tough. On the third run as soon as you are going through one set of cones you should already be turning to the opposite side since there is only a small distance between the cones. Keep your finger off the ollie button for this one since it seems to give you added speed.

Birds on the Wire

Steve Caballero's Goal

Steve Caballero (Pro Specific Challenge)

The timing on this can be a little awkward. When it tells you to "go high" the biker will stall on the half-pipe, you need to air over him and do the right trick. Conversely when it tells you to "go low" do the lip trick somewhere near the orange marker until the guy on the bike airs over you. When you hear the click of a camera it means the trick registered and you can go onto the next. There are 12 of these in total.
