The game has an arcade-style emphasis in regards to realism. The objective is to score points by successfully completing various skateboarding tricks such as grinds, flip tricks, and aerials. Performing several moves in succession without any pause results in a combo. If the player successfully lands the final trick the score is then banked, otherwise all points in that combo are lost. Players are also tasked with completing objectives in each level. In exchange for completion of these objectives players are rewarded with points that can be spent to upgrade a character’s attributes.
