Useless Dave missions[edit | edit source]

Impress Dave[edit | edit source]

Head over to Dave who's near the building behind the bus stop. He's going to want to see you do a wallride. To do this, get some air off the ramp then press grind right as your board is level with the wall-ledge. Simply grind along the edge then ollie into the wall and do a wallride over the arch. Hit grind again as you reach the next ledge to complete the task.[1]

From Milo[edit | edit source]

Meet up with Dave near the museum to have him show you how to swipe the statue. First, hop off your board and climb up the ladder (to the right of Dave) to get into museum, then bust through the window out the other end. When you get to the statue, ollie up side of the fountain up above the statue's head to grab the key. Then go back to front door to unlock gate, so the truck can be brought in. Next you'll need to grind around statue to tie it up with the rope, staying on the ledge for 5 seconds.

Back to Hollywood[edit | edit source]

Now that you've collected all the pieces in Beverly Hills, head back to Hollywood where you'll have to collect more pieces. First, talk to the movie theatre attendant outside of the movie theatre to get to the roof and meet up with Dave. He'll show you how to take down the antenna. First grind on the antenna's support wires by just going up and down them. Next, you'll have to launch of ramp and pull off a footplant on the tower. Finally, skate up to the end of the tower and balance a Natas spin on tip of tower for 5 seconds.[2]

Snatch the Fire Escape[edit | edit source]

Wheel on over to Useless Dave who's near the downtown entrance. With him, you'll have to skitch on the left side of the car, which'll drive you up to ramp, then lip trick off of various parts of fire escape. Hold down to let go of car right before it reaches the end of the road, then jump as you hit ramp and hold grind at the same time to lip trick on progressively higher parts of the railing. After the 3rd time, it'll fall down.[3]
