Master Zen missions[edit | edit source]
Advanced Level Courses[edit | edit source]
It's now time to meet up with Master Zen who'll will teach you some serious trick-pulling skills that'll prove to be invaluable throughout the rest of the game. One of the first tricks you'll learn is the Stall. Find Master Zen by the freeway opening to learn this one. You'll first have to hold a stall for a short time on any 3 rails or ledges in the area. The blue ledges of the buildings nearby are quick and easy picks. Then he'll ask you to stall on the freeway sign, by jumping off the ramp to the right of it and balancing a stall on the sign for 6 seconds. Once you pull this off, you will unlock the freeway as additional skating space.
Unleash the Best[edit | edit source]
Get on top of Really Old Citizen Association building by entering through the opened door on the side. Master Zen will then instruct you to grind along the ledge of the roof and smash into the tower at the end by just running into it. You'll then have to grind again but this time ollie into the building to smash it again and unleash the dragon.
Natas Like an Egyptian[edit | edit source]
Find Master Zen in the alleyway. For this mission, you'll have to hop off your board and climb to the roof of the nearby building. Once there, Natas spin on two of the pyramids on the roof top. You'll have to pull off a few doubletap tricks while on them. After that, smash them thangs up with your board. Bada bing!
Special & Focus[edit | edit source]
Meet up with Master Zen near the dumpsters to learn about the Special Meter and Focus. Master Zen will have you grind along railing to build up special meter, then he'll want you to focus for 6 seconds. Note, however, that focus only lasts as long as you're still in a combo, so pull a manual when you come out of your grind and do a couple doubletap tricks while in it in order to keep your special meter full. Next you'll have to do a grind to a tail block slide off the dumpster railing. Finally, you'll have to pull off a 360 grind flip over the dumpster at the end of the railing. The trick to this mission is to not get into focus mode until midway through the railing or you'll use it all up too early.
