GOLDEN SANDS, MIAMI
When you've gotten the hang of this level, all others but Arizona and Canada ought to be a breeze.
Because, despite being the first track of the six, it's actually rather hardm due to the large amount of islands that always seem to get in your way, reminding you not to dash about it too fast. Make sure the section you're about to use a turbo in is island-free and you should be fine, though.



WILD WATER CANYON, ARIZONA
This level isn't called 'Wild Water Canyon' for nothing. It has strong rapids that will toss you about if you use your engine power too much.
Suggestion: Stay at low engine power throughout the level, exept in the upwards circle - use turbo-boost here - and the straight section near the finish line - also a great place for turbos.



GLACIER BAY, ALASKA

LAVA TRAILS, HAWAII
Very easy track, invites to just cruise along and use a lot of booster power.
The first lavafall you encounter here is a double one - a smooth first 'step' followed by a sudden drop at the second step just two or three boat lengths beyond. Suggestion: Turn sharp left at the top of it and activate a turbo to sail over both. Alternatively, go super slow. Tricky one.
The second lavafall is more like a strange geological wedge in the middle of the track, rather high. It does block the view to the rest of the track rather completely, so unless you've gone along this one before and memorized it, do not use your booster power.
The third lavafall is at the gargoyle with the glowing eyes. Use one of the turbos made availible a few boat lengths before it to sail over it - don't steer unless you want to flip!
Possibly the hardest bit to do full speed is towards the end of the track - a sudden huge drop down (but not a lavafall), combined with a left turn (right turn in mirror). Steer hard left before you're launched into the air here whilst activating a turbo (if you have one), then hope for the best.
