 Warming Up (5 points)
Win 3 consecutive ranked online matches
 
First you need to figure out which game type you are best at, then keep entering those types of matches. This can not be boosted since the game puts you in random matches, so you actually have to be somewhat good to win.

You should get about $150,000 playing through the game, and you can simply buy 50 hats at $15-30 each, so don't try to rush this and you can get it easily.

 Flow & Style (5 points)
Do a 10,000 Point Line in Career Mode
 
This is easiest at the X-Games. After you finish the mega-jump event, you can go there on your own and should be able to get much more than the required 10,000. This could also be done in the sewers next to the community center.
 
 Rocket Man (5 points)
Perform a Rocket Air in Career Mode
 
Easiest done on the X-Games mega-jump event. If your stance is goofy: While you’re in the air pull the right stick down then hold  down and then . If your stance is regular: While you are in the air pull the  towards you then hold  and then . You must land the trick to get the achievement.
 
 Am Skater (10 points)
Complete a Shop Film to become an Amateur
 
You will get this after you complete the goal "Regs shop film." You will need to score 1,000 points in 30 seconds which by now should be very easy for you.
 
 Hooked Up (15 points)
Earn all four sponsorships
 
You will need to have a board, shoe, truck and wheel sponsor for this. Select your sponsors at a skate shop.
 
 X-Games Gold (20 points)
Earn Gold in both X-Games events
 
After you are on the cover of the skateboard magazine, you will get a call saying that you can be in the X-Games. There is no rush to do this, they don’t start without you. There are two events, the mega ramp and the street best trick contest. Both are fairly simple. You might need some practice on the street one just to get to know the good lines. For the mega ramp you are rated on a scale of 0-100 by your trick. To win the contest you usually need to get 87 to outdue everyone else.
 
 Pro Skater (20 points)
Earn a Pro Model Board
 
This is earned after beating a pro’s challenge and accepting them as your sponsor. You can then use their boards.
 
 Without Footage It's Fiction (20 points)
Beat alll Film Challenges
 
For this you need to beat every film challenge in game. This is pretty hard to do. You must complete every single filming session for Thrasher and the Skateboard Mag. After you finish the main storyline there will still be a couple films left for you by pressing the right bumper. Some of the thrasher shoots in a no skater zone, and are quite brutal. I suggest doing them at the hospital or at the spot where Big Black and Rob’s challenge is. Some of the films are also very easy to do off of the Mega ramp at the X-Games (big score ones).
 
 King of the Highway (20 points)
Beat all Races
 
Complete all of the death races. There are not to many of them. Some tips for beating them all:
  • Go through the race once or twice not trying to win just so you are familiar with the route.
  • Almost always be holding the A button down to go faster.
  • You will lose if you wipe out or get hit by a car.
  • You will gain the most ground on your opponents on the straight down segments.
  • For really tight turns take them while you hold the left or right trigger down to do a power slide (depending on which way you are turning). You will lose some speed but will not fall.
  • Don’t get frustrated. Some of these are pretty hard. Just keep trying until the AI get slammed by a car and lose 10 seconds.
  • Don’t touch cars, pedestrians, or your opponents. Just by touching them when you are going fast makes you fall, usually.
  • You don't need to hit all the gates. You only actually HAVE to hit the red one. The only reason the gates are there is to give you more time to get to the end. So if a gate is out of the way you should usually just skip it.
 
 Contest Pro (20 points)
Beat all Contests
 
Beat all of the mini contests for thrasher and the Skateboard Mag. Also beat all the storyline contests. The last one is in Danny Way’s skate park.
 
 Photogenic (20 points)
Beat all Photo Challenges
 
Beat all the photo challenges in the game. A black or red camera on your map shows them. The black ones only appear on your mini map and not your full map. You will either get this just before you complete the story or after it depending on what order you do the goals. This includes the photo shots for magazines and the shots that advance you closer to getting in the magazines.
 
 Uninsurable (25 points)
Complete all Medical Milestones
 
To get this you must break 100 bones total and break each individual bone 10 times. A good way to break bones is to go off the X-games Mega ramp and jump off to the right side while holding a Christ air until you fall. Also rolling down hills into a car head on will break a lot of bones.
 
 Year's Best (25 points)
Get the cover of The Skateboard Mag
 
This is the last photo challenge for the Skateboard Mag. Just play through the story.
 
 Skater of the Year (25 points)
Get the cover of Thrasher Magazine
 
This is the last photo challenge for Thrasher. Just play through the story.
 
 Halfway There (25 points)
Complete 50% of all Milestones
 There are 27 milestones in the game, so you must complete 14 for this achievement. You can check your progress from the logbook in your backpack.
 
 Tricked Out (25 points)
Perform all Tricks in the Trick Book in Career Mode
 
There are basic, medium and advance flip tricks, grinds and grabs. On all nine of these you can press  on it. It will then bring you to the list. From there you can scroll down the list for even more tricks that you HAVE to do for the achievement. When one is highlighted it will show you how to do the trick. For the advance grabs and flips an easy place to do them is the X-Games mega jump. You will probably do all the grinds by accident some time during the game.
 
 Urban Legend (30 points)
Own all the spots
 
Some of these are really hard. If you can’t seem to get it then try a different angle. Some spots have different ways of approaching them. There are 20 spots total, check this thread for a map to find all of them.
 
 Keys to the City (30 points)
Unlock all locations
 
There are 8 spots in the game to unlock. You can see which ones you need still by looking at your map. They are shown as an octagon with a stop hand in the middle of it. The last you get will most likely be Danny Way's skate park.
 
 Fanboy (50 points)
Beat all the Pros
 
As the game progresses there will be more pro challenges. Yes there are a lot, and yes some are very hard. Practice, Practice, Practice…
 
 Keep Playing (75 points)
Beat all Challenges
 
Beat every challenge in the game, skate games, filming sessions, photos, competitions, and much more. Complete EVERYTHING. This is very time consuming and difficult.
