Hidden combo grinds
While doing one of the following grinds, without Ollieing off press one of the combos to do a "hidden grind combo". Grind combos can transfer from move to move multiple times so there is no need to get off a rail unless you want to completely change grind sets from top set to bottom set. All of the grind moves are done from the up or forward position (skater leaning forward while grinding or sliding), and the down or backwards position (skater is leaning backwards while sliding or grinding).
5050 to 5-0: Press [Down] + [Y].
5050 to Nose Grind: Press [Up] + [Y].
These are the two necessary positions from the 50-50 or possible without the 50-50. You cannot transfer back to the 50-50, 5-0, or Nose Grind doing these combos.
During these two sets, you can transfer from any of the moves to any other of the moves in the same set, but cannot use specials or to root moves (5-0, Nose Grind, and 50-50) without Ollieing off the grind.
The up set contains the following.

Nose Bluntslide: Press [Up], [Up] + [Y].

Smith: Press [Down], [Up] + [Y].
Feeble: Press [X] + [X].
Tailslide: Press [B] + [B].
There are also some special grinds from both sets, but there are too many to list. They can be revealed, depending on which moves you use.
Prevent trick point values from dropping
If you have used a trick too much and its point value is dropping fast (for example, a 700 Melon only worth 1000 points), press [Start] and go to "Edit Tricks". Then, edit your grab tricks to replace the current trick with another fresh trick. The point values for that trick will be restored and you can continue racking up big points to complete the goals (high score, pro score, sick score, etc.). This trick can be used to renew any type of trick (grabs, special, flip, etc.).
Rodeo Clown: Keep board spinning

Let yourself grind up and slide back down. Once you slide back down, jump to the next rail and so on. If done properly, the rails form a continuous loop as long as you can stay balanced. Special grinds help a lot.
At the start of the level there are the two little walkways. When you jump from one walkway bar to another while grinding you will get huge points. Do this four or five times before the walkway ends and you may get 50,000 easy points. If you manual to the next walkway and continue the same thing you can get at least 150,000 points.

Since there are a lot of women around that area, they will keep giving you prop thus enhancing your score. Since you have a lot of speed you will go over the gap where the water slide is located and also increase your score. You can do this as long as desired.

When you get to the edge of the rail on the ramp, do a manual to the right, where you will head for the green house. Start grinding throughout the green house non-stop by turning around on the curving rails. If you can bust special grinds while doing all of this, than you will break the high sick score of 500,000 points. If you cannot do the special grinds well, then keep repeating this until you bust the sick score.

Cruise Ship level: Real captain
Enable the "Moon physics" cheat and smash every piece of glass in the greenhouse. You may have to drop from the pool deck through the greenhouse. Once the last piece has smashed, you will hear a fight followed by someone screaming as if he was thrown off something very high. This is the fake captain going over the ship. Then a new voice will say that he is the real captain and the man that you were listening to was a fake. This new captain will say the same things as the fake, but in a different style. If you do not hear a new voice, smash every piece of glass you see, including the shops and the museum.
