Tips and Tricks
Be gentle with your swipes and slides to begin with, it makes smaller tricks much easier to control.
Unless you're doing pop-shove its, in which case tap hard and catch fast.
A few swipes on the ground is enough to get you going at full speed, so don't go swipe crazy.
Unlimited grind points
On inbound there is a grindable ramp on the far left side, it is near the bowl and the tilted staircase. It is the spawn point there. When you go straight onto the edge of the ramp like box, you can slide up it until you either pass the lip of the box and you continue onwards or you can slide back down the box. Get your board so that the back left wheel is on the actual box while the rest of the board is grinding. This will allow you to continue to slide up and down the rail indefinitely.
As you are performing a single trick, the timer doesn't start. By positioning you thumb just so, you are able to hold the board on a 50 grind. Once you want to exit the rail, simply ollie off and try not to fall to either side. Note that the timer will automatically run down very fast so you will only be able to get in the single grind. But, if done correctly, you can get a score in the millions, i got 2.1M with a x73 multiplier and a 26500 point grind.

Gold follow missions
