******************* Shell and Shell Related Achievements*******************

Shells are what the game uses to unlock different items and characters. Unlike Surf Idols, shells are not collected. Instead they are awarded for completing certain objectives in each level (usually gaining X amount of points and going through X number of gates). I personally found it much easier to go for the gate shells and point shells in different runs.

Lucky one 10
Get a total of 4 Shells.

See "Record Man!"

Shell Collector 20
Get a total of 8 Shells.

See "Record Man!"

Shell Lover 30

Get a total of 16 Shells.

See "Record Man!"

Too Many Shells 50
Get a total of 20 Shells.

See "Record Man!"

Record Man! 100

The Beach Kid 50
Unlock Arnold by getting the second shell in Shiverpool 2.

The second shell in Shiverpool 2 requires you to earn 30,000 points. I found abusing stoke mode and grabbing multipliers was the best way to get that many points. The achievement will unlock after you earn 30,000 points AND complete the level.


Wild Encounter 100
Unlock Elliot by getting the second shell in Volcano 2.

The second shell in Volcano 2 requires you to earn 40,000 points. The way I did this was to always grab multipliers before performing stoke moves in the wave tunnels and grind all possible rails.

The Geek 50
Unlock Geek by getting the second shell in Pen-Gu South 4.

The second shell in Pen-Gu South 4 requires you to earn 60,000 points. The way I did this was to use the grinds as much as I could, do as many stoke moves as possible in the wave tunnel and finally I got a 5x multiplier and hammered out a couple moves in stoke mode.

Figure from the Past 100
Unlock Z by getting the second shell in Pen-Gu North legendary.

The shell in the legendary wave area requires you to gain 100,000 points. Though this may sound like a lot, this level is very easy to rack up the points in. Just remember to grab multipliers before performing your stoke moves, especially in the wave tunnels.

Slide Survivor 1 10
Beat the hi-score and get the shell in leaf slide 1.

The leaf sliding levels are a separate mode from Championship mode and are accessed through the game's main menu, The record time for this area is 1:30 (one minute, thirty seconds). To beat this time do your best to avoid falling off the course or hitting rocks. In addition hit as many hourglasses and red arrows as you can safely.

Slide Survivor 2 10
Beat the hi-score and get the shell in leaf slide 2.

The record time for this area is 1:07 (one minute, seven seconds). Follow the advice in Slide Survivor 1 and you should be fine.

Slide Survivor 3 10
Beat the hi-score and get the shell in leaf slide 3.

The record time for this area is 1:35 (one minute, thirty five seconds). Follow the advice in Slide Survivor 1 and you should be fine.
