Most of the challenges are easy.

1 is a simple 5-0 grind (hold the tail on the board down), grab, then grind-manual-grind link. Nothing too hard.

2 requires an advanced (do a grab while covering the bottom sensor) grab, followed by THREE unique grinds on three benches. Do a nose grind, 5-0 grind, and another for simplicity.

3 is a simple jump to manual, then an advanced flip trick. You won't be able to pull off the flip trick if you hold the manual, so get out of the manual as soon as you land it from the ollie.

4 is an advanced flip trick, grind transfer, then a spine transfer with a flip trick. Again, nothing too difficult. For the spine, tilt the front of the board down and tilt it slightly for the flip.

5. Fuck challenge 5. You have to do a spine transfer, nose grind to nollie, and an invert to top it off. The first half of that is easy. Doing a nollie OFF into the pool area barely works. I found that if you tilt slightly to the right when you do it, you're more likely to get it.

The invert is what messes most people up. The ramp is just too small. And simply put, it just doesn't register like it should. You'll either do a grab or just miss it completely.

Firstly, I'd say calibrate your board for this. It DOES make a difference.

Second, if you're playing with your hands rather than your feet, DONT. Play it legit, trust me. And lastly, once you come up to the revert, DONT cover the top sensor completely, hold your hand out from it a foot or so. I tried this and got it fairly easily. This is why it's imperative to do this standing up.

Oh, and you can't fall off the board at all. You can go out of bounds or fail a challenge, but you can't bail.
