Chapter 17 - Last Minute Tasks
Skate Tom's Part
Step 1: Do a Nollie 5 times. To do a Nollie first get into the nollie stance by hitting the left shoulder button twice, then use the ollie button. You can do this anywhere you like in the level.
Step 2: Do a Pressure 5 times. Similar kind of thing, only tap shoulder button once instead.
Step 3: Start a combo using a Nollie or a Pressure and rack up 25,000 points. Easiest way to do this is do the Pressure onto the bannister and grind it down onto the circular fountain. Ride it around using some modifiers until you've got enough points.

Race The Blowcart
Now this blowcart is one weird vehicle, the handling is terrible and you're prone to bobbling around a lot. It's like part vehicle and part hovercraft. Your best bet is to lay off the accelerator when you're making turns. Be careful on elevated walkways too as it's kind of buggy, you can easily go off the sides even through the barriers.
You need to drive through each of the leaf piles, they're in a reasonably obvious line. Use the red arrow if you lose track. For each pile you get through you'll receive an added 5 seconds on the clock.

3 items have been stolen by rogue skaters, none of them are inside the hotel. Each of them have a skull logo above their heads so they're easy enough to spot. Leave the hotel through the elevator, there's usually one of the guys outside the exit. Watch the video if you have troubles, although the skaters might have different routes that they take I'm not sure.

Ralphie Got Busted
Step 1: Ralphie's been busted and his passport's missing, sounds like a job for the blowcart. Follow the red arrow to the gardener so you can get the cart. You need to drive the cart through 6 leaf piles, each pile has a flashy green icon over it. Head forward some way then make a left, you'll see 3 of the piles in a straight line so get them. Head down the other side of the raised steps area, get the 2 piles around the circular fountain. Finally drop down into the bowl area to get the last pile.
Step 2: Ralphie is up on a balcony on the big building in front of you. Go to the left side a little and use the quarter-pipe at the base to launch up. Climb the ladder made of towels to reach him.

ES - Kill The Score Spots
This is the hardest of the shoe goals, you have to do three 20,000 point combos in a row. If you goof one up you fail the goal and have to start again. It's pretty much up to you how you score these combos. For the second one the easiest way is to grind around the circular fountain that you start next to, shuffle through a load of modifiers on your way around. See the video for this and other ideas.
