Enter each map in Free Skate mode. When it loads, go the the Pause Menu and hit 'Start Run'. You have 2 minutes to get 2,000 points, which shouldn't be hard at all. Once you get 2,000 points, you can either select 'End Run' from the Pause Menu or play through the run. Quitting after you get 2,000 will not get you the achievement.

Note: Do these achievements before the Classic Mode ones, as you will have to beat your Classic high score for this achievement as well.

 Classic Mode: 100% (50 points)
Classic Mode is now 100% complete!
 

Classic mode consists of 6 maps, each with 10 challenges. For each map, there are:

  • 3 high score challenges, where you must score above a specific amount of points total in one session (2 minutes)
  • 1 high combo challenge, where you must score above a specific amount of points in a single combo
  • Collect SKATE, where you must collect the letters S-K-A-T-E that are scattered around the map during the course of a single session
  • Collect COMBO, where you must get the letters C-O-M-B-O in a single combo
  • 4 other goals, which vary from map to map.

You do not have to get all 10 goals in a single session. Also, you do not have to collect either SKATE or COMBO in order, but for COMBO it is easiest to start at C and go in order.

 
 Complete (100 points)
Completed the game 100%!
 

You do not need 100% completion per se, but rather you will have to do the following:

  • Complete story mode - See "Party at the Ranch!"
  • Collect all Skate Ranch pieces.
  • Complete Classic Mode - see "Classic Mode 100%"
  • Find all gaps - This is the hard one. You must hit all gaps, either in story mode, free skate, classic, or a mixture of all 3. There are some gaps that you need to get in story mode, in the skate ranch. This is by far the most time-consuming part of the game. For help with the gaps, try http://thps3.net/THAW/.
