    This achievement is for completing Hover Headway, which is an "Against The Clock" level, without touching the floor. To unlock the level, you have to obtain 20 medals leading up to it. I've included videos in which I obtained Gold Medals (3 medals) in each "Against The Clock" level.

    Just to clarify, you do not need to get gold medal on every challenge leading up to this as you only need 20 to unlock the level for the achievement.

    If you touch the ground, there will be a "failure" noise that plays. If you hear this you'll have to restart the level.

    BradTheChickenI've got a really annoying bug on the ps3 version where it's not saving my medal progress. As soon as I back out of the level it shows everything as 0/3. I can go to the next levels, so it must know I've unlocked them, but it's just doing nothing on the menus and I can't therefore select later levels after backing out. I couldn't find any mention of this bug on google, any advice?? It's insanely frustrating. :(

    Tanelorn82Thanks for the videos, it helped greatly to get the 20 medals. The 'Not-touching-floor' part is actually quite easy.

    AristophaneAgreed the challenge is the medals. The avoiding of the floor was the easy part

    Runner7922Thanks for the useful videos. While I have found a few ways to do things bit differently, this solution really helps to get one's bearings and to find a good starting path without having to waste time and experiment too much. One thing I found useful was the re-start. If you know you made a mistake, just restart, rather than play to the end of the level as that will save a lot of time.

    For the record, while you do not need to get all the gold medals to unlock the 9th level, you will still need at least 4 gold, and 4 silver. It would be nice to know which levels are relatively easy for getting the gold medals you need. But since getting a gold medal is much harder, once you have four, then you just need to get silver for the rest. If you are stuck with a bronze, then you will need to make up with another gold.

    Y2Kasper10Great video, but fuck me that's still hard. I dont know if I can get enough medals to unlock this thing

    Mike MarcelaisOMG is this hard. The level of precision required is near impossible (at least for me) -- I can't even get a medal (of any kind) on the first level.

    Terrible to have an achievement hidden behind such a brutal prerequisite.
