Your guide for cheat codes, tips, hacks and walkthroughs

Quick start

Just before the announcer says, "Go!", hold both Gas buttons. If done correctly, your speed should increase immediately to maximum power.

Reverse mode

Win the game on expert mode. Then after the ending sequence, return to championship mode and choose the new reverse mode option to go through the course backwards.

Fast recovery

Repeatedly tap A after falling off the jet ski to climb back quickly.

Extra points

Pause the game immediately after a stunt and just before the announcer speaks in stunt mode. If done correctly, only the announcer's voice will be heard. Then, a large number of extra points will be awarded for simple stunts. Another way get extra points is to cross the finish time as the clock reaches zero.

Alternate colors

Highlight a character and hold Up on the Analog-stick when selecting a jet ski to choose between two different color schemes.

Less air time

Just before hitting a big wave or ramp, press B to reduce the amount of air time.

Alternate view

Press C-Up and C-Down to adjust the zoom. Press C-Left and C-Right to change the camera angle.
