Haha, good idea on the barefoot mode!

Traveling to Rio was out of our scope, since it's a far trip from Warsaw, Poland where we're based in.
We used street view instead Here's a picture that's showing the actual place and elements from Rio that we based our level on.

the background you did is perfect
this is santa marta

i can't figure out the headers. is it just timing? does it matter if you hit left or right? do his eyes give you an indication? i can't tell if the ball is hitting the left or right side of his head and if that matters. it just seems like luck. please help

Thanks for the kind word!

As for the timings. Let's start with noting that you have three kind of tricks:

Feet bounces:
- you tap left or right to trigger left or right foot.

Head bounce:
- if you tap left the ball will go a bit to the right, and the opposite for the other side. So the challenge is to keep the ball in the middle. The first tap doesn't matter as the ball will always land in the center when the boy moves to this trick

Stall tricks:
- you need to keep balance. When you move into this trick a balance indicator will show up. If the ball moves to the right, you need to tap on the left. The same goes for the opposite side.

So how to fill up the frenzy meter?
- feet tricks: the later you tap the better (though it's easier to miss then)
- head tricks: the sweet spot is to tap just after the ball passed the highest position
- stall tricks: keep the ball in the center

It's not intended to be easy, figuring the right rhythm is a part of the challenge
