This one is not easy and will take many tries! For video, see the walkthrough for this game and there is a great demonstration. You will need to find Bam in the Slums area. Here are some notes for those that need what they are seeing broken down a bit further.

During the initial rail ride you will grind (Y) on the first ledge with the first collectible. You will need to jump/ollie (A) a split second before hitting the top of this little hill to get up on the rail above you for the second collectible. Almost as soon as you get it you will need to jump up against the wall to your right for a Wallie (A on to the wall/Y to grind the wall) and then tap A/Y again to get on the rail above you from the wall. (This one may take a few tries to get the feel for it.) Now you are on the main rail that you will stay on. The hardest part is maintaining balance around the 2 curves. You might need to throw in another ollie or kickflip back into a grind to keep balance on the straightaways and up the rail. Once you get all of the collectibles, Bam will take you to part 2 of the challenge.

This next part was super frustrating and took me probably 30-40 tries (maybe more) but here are some tips to give you an idea what to do. You will be asked to move down the first ramp and then spine transfer (RT while in the air off the quarterpipe) down/inside the building where you will go into a bail and try to land in the dumpster.

First of all, don't gain speed (don't hold A) down the main ramp as you will already have enough and you don't want to go too fast. You want to aim for the part of the quarterpipe where the green arrow is pointing as it lines up with the dumpster at the bottom. Hit the quarterpipe and hit RT when you are in the air above it to transfer down the other side. Now here is the trick, you will need to start your own bail instead of just letting yourself crash and fly. To do my own bail, I pressed RT/LT/RB/LB all at the same time and then also started pressing down on the control stick right away to slow my bail down so that I wouldn't fly past the dumpster. The ideal spot to start your bail is where the ground changes at the bottom before you crash (there will be almost a line where the texture of the ground changes from one to the other). Try to hit your bail as you cross this line for your best chance to not fly out of the zone. Pressing down will slow you down greatly and if you started your transfer where the green arrow was properly, you shouldn't need to adjust to the right or left. Just fly straight while slowing it down and if you actually manage to not be going far enough, let off on the down stick. This will take MANY MANY tries to get a feel for it. But remember that persistence is the key. Good luck!
