All three of 1080 degrees's Trick Attack courses give you a chance to spend several seconds off the ground. If you leap when the jump meter is at it's peack, the game will switch into slow motion, giving you more time in the air. When your character flashes, you'll be able to score a combo multiplier if you pull off a quick grab.
1080 degrees is crammed full of rails and logs to slide. Watch the balance meter carefully and adjust the control stick to keep the marker in the middle. Sliding can be a great way to shave some seconds from your score in Time Trial mode.
Tuck and Run
You can improve your course time by tucking at every opportunity. The tuck cuts down on your ability to turn tightly, but it increases your speed. Take quick turns out of the tuck, then press and hold the L button to tuck again as soon you're setup for a straight path.
Ride Away Clean
If you're reckless in the air, there's a good chance that you'll land off balance or wipe out when you come back down to earth. To ensure a safe, speed-building landing, press and hold the L button just before your board touches the snow.
