Feed The 4 Angry Sea Lions
You'll notice there are 4 fishermen around the pier doing what they do best. Behind each one is a bench with their box on it. Grind on the bench and they'll turn around to approach it, while they're at the bench grind across the rail where they were fishing from. This causes their fish to drop into the water and distract a sea lion. Do this for all four.

Save Painter Neal
Painter Neal's busy decorating a sign on a piece of decking that juts out over the water. If you talk to him he tells you grind the birdshit off the rail around him. Do this and guess what... yep shark attack. You'll find yourself back up where Painter Bob is. One of the stone spheres now has a wire around it, grind the wire and let the unlikely physics do the rest.

Race To Get The Camera
First you need to meet a guy down by the warehouses, follow the red arrow for your general direction. Time is ticking so grind as much stuff as you can for speed. Turns out he got mugged and a different guy has the camera up by the bus shelter so follow the red arrow back up the road. An option is to use the concrete slopes to get up onto the electrical wires for grinding, you can do this both ways. Now we need film, swerve around hard to the left and head to the plaza. The film is outside the Nokia shop, grind along the benches to get it. Lastly head back to the photographer guy on the pier. Time isn't that tight, as long as you use some good grinding you should finish with over ten seconds left on the clock.

Manual, Gap And Manual The Setup
This one's fun, and kind of tricky if you're not too adept with the controls. Ollie onto the wooden ramp setup and land it in a Manual. Ride along until you come to the gap between the concrete ledges, ollie the gap and land in a Manual on the other side. Now just ride it to the other end. Make sure you're holding down the ollie button while you're in the manuals for speed.

Nail The Tricks They Yell Out
The easiest way of doing this is to get next to the ledge and ride parallel to it, this way you don't have to worry about your direction. For each trick listed you have to ollie, do the trick and land in a grind on the ledge. Alternatively you can go from a grind on the ledge, ollie into the trick and land on the ground. This is called tricking in and tricking out respectively.
