First yes vote on this score, and thank you for the kind words.  The skateboarding's not bad once you get used to it and improve at it; the surfing segment of the game is more difficult, in my opinion.

@ILLSeaBass:

I just finished watching your video and I see that you and I have different approaches to how we navigate through the levels.  Some of your deaths were very avoidable (the baseballs hitting you) and some of them stemmed from you taking unnecessary risk and making it harder.  For instance, I notice you try to get the 1,000-point bonus from the ramp jumps way more often than I do.  I do that sparingly because if you fall in the hole and mess it up, it just makes it harder for you to freeze the timer (timer does not freeze until you max out the life meter).

Once my score passes, I'll do another playing session where I film it so you and others can see what I do differently in a video.

Also, NOT ONCE did I see you touch the spilled oil.  Don't be afraid to skate right over the oil; the oil gives you a higher top speed.  Once you improve your play in this game, the greater top speed is very handy at helping you collect things and maxing out the life meter sooner (and thus freezing the timer sooner).

Thanks, I didn't know half of the things you said were part of the game and I owned this cartridge back in the day. Thanks for the pointers!

Thanks, but Dugger is the master. This game has always drove me nuts, just thought I'd throw my hat in the ring with this score.
