Welcome to the Surf's Up Achievement Guide. For your convenience I have divided the achievements up into sections. If you follow the road map above and the descriptions within in each achievement you should have very little problem getting all 1000. Enjoy!

1) Unlockable and Miscellaneous Achievements
2) Trophy Related Achievements
3) Shell and Shell Related Achievements
4) Surf Idol Achievements



****************** Unlockable and Miscellaneous Achievements ******************

These achievements are gained either by completing the game's tutorial mode or unlocking certain items. Items in this game are unlocked by earning shells which are awarded for completing preset objectives given to you in each level. As long as you collect every shell, then you won't miss out on any of the unlockable achievements.

Quick Learner 10
Complete all the lessons in the tutorial.

After you begin Championship mode, choose your surfer and then choose Shiverpool. After the video you will have the option to choose Shiverpool 1, instead choose the circle down and to the left of Shiverpool 1 that says "Training." In total there are 9 lessons that must be completed for this achievement. They are as follows:

Aiming
Basic Tricks
Advanced Tricks
Hold Tricks
Freestyle Tricks
Grinds
Floaters
Speed Boost
Stoke Mode

NOTE: After you complete each lesson there will be an "X" in the block next to it.

Fashion Freak 40
Unlock every accessory.

Much easier than it sounds. There are only two accessories that need to be unlocked for this achievement. Back accessories and Wrist accessories are both unlocked by earning shells for Shiverpool 1 and Pen-Gu South 3 respectively.

Board Collector 40
Unlock all the boards in the game.

In total there are 14 boards in the game. This is the glitchiest achievement in the game. Some people collect every shell, trophy and idol and still don't get all the boards to unlock. The best fix to avoid this problem is to not use cheat codes or move onto a new area until you have all the trophies, shells and idols. BP! did some research into the glitch; his result can be found HERE. The following is the list of boards:

Barnacle Board
Tiny Wonder
The Rock
Tidal Wave
Tiny Tornado
Sunny Day
The Boat
Tiny Storm
Carve Meister
Backwash
Zen
Tiny Thunder
Tempest
Nirvana (best board in the game)

First steps 30
Start surfing on the Pen Gu North Legendary wave!

The Legendary Wave area unlocks after earning the trophies for Pen-Gu North 1, 2 and 3. After that the area can be found just above the Pen-Gu North 3 area in Pen-Gu North. The achievement will unlock as soon as the level begins.



********************* Trophy Related Achievements*********************

Trophies are what the game uses to allow you to unlock different areas. All trophies require a certain amount of points be gained on a level for them to be awarded. For the most part, trophies are much easier to earn than shells.
