Tips:
- If you are finding it hard, thats ok, it is meant to be hard.
- Control your ollie height by how hard you swipe down on the tail.
- To land on a grind rail, press down on the board as early as you can to push it down on to the rail more.
- Use your imagination, find something that looks hard to do and see if you can do it.
- Hold your finger down on a transition to automatically pump.

Notes:
Here is a list of trick book tricks. It is possible to do nollie variations on a lot of these tricks, although, there is a bug where nollie tricks naming is mirrored. It is also possible to late tricks like pop shove-it to late kick flip, however only the bellow will appear in the trick book.

Been waiting for something like Touchgrind BMX for a while. This looks a lot more fun than Touchgrind. Didn't like the top-down view in that game. Loved the view in TBMX though. This looks like that, but with a skateboard. Getting it.

Oh, and, of course, Space Tripper and JCS are both brilliant.

This couldn't be referencing another game could it?
