"Alien Manual Shop Pro" Challenge
Step off your board and hop on the first planter. Run across the planter and jump up the step. Jump off on the other side. Remain still and get on your board again to complete the first task of the challenge. Get off your board and jump on the next planter. Jump across the gap between the planters. Run across the last section of the planter and jump off. Stand still and get back on your board to complete the challenge.
"Who Lives here?" Challenge
There is a kicker that you need to move to land on. It is to the left of where you are supposed to land.
"Can You Spell Girl?" Challenge
Restart the challenge until Eric Koston falls. When you get the set trick do 540's by pressing the [Left Analog-stick] and [Right Analog-stick] in the same direction. You can also try triple kickflips or heelflips.
"Dunk Slam" Challenge
Place one ramp under the backboard almost lined up with it, but slightly in front of it. Throw away the other ramp. When you start the challenge go left and up the concrete until you reach the tunnel. Place set marker as far as possible without leaving the challenge area. Skate as fast as possible towards the ramp. Hold R1 PlayStation3 or RB Xbox 360 before hitting the ramp and it should grab the backboard. Do not ollie. Hold that button and press [Up] as soon as you hit the ramp. Keep Up held until after the handplant. Try adjusting the position of the ramp as needed.
"Vert With The Vampire" Challenge
Get air as much as you can by going back and forth on the vert and ollieing. Then hold R2 PlayStation3 or RT Xbox 360 until you get to the tranny of the window side of the vert. Release the button when the tranny ends and you will be going up the wall.
Pump and hold [R2] on the opposite quarter pipe from the actual gap, where the two arrows are located. You should have enough air coming down. Use that speed and air with an angle to jump the gap. Use the [R2] trick on the tranny of the gap.
Change Branded Clothes Colors
Note: This trick only works for shirts, hoodies and jackets. Pause game play and select "Edit Skater". Select "Merchandise" and find a branded clothing item that you want to have a custom color (for example, a shirt). Purchase the item and leave the store. Wear the item, then go back to the store. Select the same category of the item that you purchased, for example "Shirts", then select "Custom Shirts". Press [Start], go to "Edit Receipt" and uncheck the shirt. Select the option to go back to the store. You should now how be wearing the branded item but can now customize it. Change its color as desired, then press [Start].
Can You Spell Girl? Glitch Trick
While S.K.A.T.E. is a gentleman's game, there's an exploit that you can use if you are tearing your hair out for the incredibly difficult Can You Spell Girl? Pro Challenge -- and yes, it's cheating. First, though, start the challenge and quit out. Now, make sure you haven't moved the two items involved in the challenge: the ramp and the rail. Go reset both of these if they've been moved, or for good measure. Now you'll need another rail like the one in the challenge setup. It must be from far away to work, you can't use the nearby one at the bottom of the spillway, so you have some dragging to do. Go up the spillway tubes and ramps until you find the rail way up the hill past the overhanging bridge area. Pull that back and BE SURE NOT TO TOUCH THE CHALLENGE OBJECTS WITH IT. Pull it in between the picnic table ramp and the rail so it's parallel with the challenge's rail. Leave it and start the match. Now, the first trick will occur and it will seem like nothing's changed. But the second fellow will bail after jumping awkwardly and -- lo and behold -- your grind rail has appeared! Yes, they will keep bailing. So big ollies, adding some spin and so forth will get you a victory. Finally, be sure to hit QUIT instead of RETRY if given the option -- this is a byproduct of the glitch. You will still complete the challenge if you choose QUIT.
Easy "Anyone Else?" Achievement/Trophy
Find the object used in the battle at the Lighthouse Park. Go west and find the big blue bench. Drag it over and position it lengthwise and so that it is out of your way. Start the Throwdown and choose the other skaters. Select the Lighthouse as the venue. Your opponents will bail because of the bench.
Execute double or triple kickflips. The pros cannot copy them.
