TipsChange Racer's Colors
Here's a simple trick that'll bring a little difference into the way your characters look. Go to the character select screen, and before choosing characters, push the analog stick or the D-pad up and hold it there - the character's outfits and jetski bikes will change in colour. The number on the bikes will also change. This is actually the alternate color chosen by the computer in Two-player Mode. To make the change, hold the stick up and then press A or B to select your character.
Ride on a Dolphin!
Select the Stunt Mode and play in Dolphin Park. From there you need to go through all the rings and do all the stunts (listed below) which includes diving underneath the water from a ramp. If you did everything correctly, you'll hear the dolphin squeaking when you cross the finish line.
Handstand (off throttle - press down and up)
Spin, i.e. "backwards ride" (off throttle - move stick clockwise)
Stand (off throttle - move stick counter-clockwise) + Somersault (hold down)
Roll left (off ramp - tap right and hold left)
Roll right (off ramp - tap left and hold right)
Flip (off ramp - hold up and snap down)
Dive (off ramp - hold down and snap up)
Now exit and select Championship Mode and then Warm Up. When selecting your character, hold down on the analog stick and when you start, you'll be riding a dolphin. There is a catch, though; you can only use the dolphin within this area. This cheat is also saved to your game too (even after the power is turned off) so you don't have to go through the stunt mode each time.
Try to press and hold down the accelerate button right before the announcer says, Go! If you are successful, you will immediately increase your top speed. It can be increased anywhere from one arrow to maximum power if you do it correctly.
New, Unlisted Stunts
Double Flip Stunt
First get some speed with the jet ski. When you are on the ramp tap up one inch from the top of the ramp and hold down to do your flip. Instead of making the character do one complete flip hold the down button longer so he does another turn. If you do it correctly he will land perfectly and ride on. J. Meter is the best guy to do this especially on the small ramps. You get 2,000+ points for this stunt. I have gotten 3,120 for this stunt in Sunny Beach because the judges (the algorithm which calculates the score) give you more for a smaller ramp and the height you jump off the ramp.
It is a variation of the flip where you spin side ways. When you are on the ramp turn sharply diagonal left-up or diagonal right-up then hold down to do a side ways flip. You can get an average of 1,700+ points for this.
Helicopter into a Flip Stunt:
Do the helicopter stunt as listed above but hold the down button longer. It will look like he does a helicopter move but then rotates so he is an upright position and does another flip. You can get 2,500+ points if done corectly. I have gotten 3,450 points on the first ramp in Twilight City for this.
To my knowledge this stunt can only be done in Glacier Park on the big ramp. You need a lot of speed and a lot of air to do this. It can only be done with J. Meter on this stage. You tap up one to two inches from the top of the ramp and start doing the flip and hold down. You need a lot of speed for this one so do not try to do any turns or get hit by an ice block in the water which may slow you down or stop you completely. You can get 3,000+ points for this. I have gotten 5,610 points because I started like a helicopter stunt with two flips after. Note that this is a difficult stunt to perform and you do need a lot of speed, timing, and maybe some tinkering with the customization of the racer at the character select screen.
