Hollywood Aerial moves

Once you get the spiral piece from the radio tower, you can get a major combo on it by standing in the middle and doing a manual.

During the mission when you have to get a 2,000 point, 5,000 point, and 10,000 point combo, after the dinosaur comes down the bus that hits it has "THUG" on the front, which refers to Tony Hawk's Underground.

On the lowest level there is a door in a corner. Sticker Slap it and go up the quarterpipe. You will come down on another quarterpipe, and at the top of the screen the message "Yuck!" will appear.

Easy points

To get a very easy high score, Rail Stall or Natas Spin. Do as many trick mods as you can before you fall. Before you fall, activate Focus mode. This makes it easier to balance. While in Focus mode, continue doing trick mods until you reach the maximum time limit. When you leave Focus mode, jump off quickly because you will most likely fall if you do not. It is possible to get over 2,000,000 points by doing this.

Avoiding crashes

When you do a trick off a ramp into the air, and if it appears that you are going to crash, get off your skateboard while still in the air. You should land safely on your feet.

Get on top of the arch and turn to your right. Jump onto the building in front of you. The building should have a bowl on its roof. Walk until you find a series of fire escapes. Wall run into each of the escapes individually. When you get to the top escape, wall run and front tuck on the taller roof then enjoy the view.

While on your bike you can do tricks that you have not learned yet any time.
