Choose a surf mode. Freestyle mode is great for developing individual style and practicing moves. Choose Competition mode for an extra challenge; penguins must impress judges by performing tricks the judges announce at the beginning of each wave. There are different waves in Competition mode. Also try survival mode. In this mode you find yourself surfing on stormy waters. You will have to dodge floating glaciers and ride violent waves. If you are just getting started, you should try Surf Lesson mode. In this mode you can learn all the basics of surfing such as flips/spins, speeding up/slowing down, shooting the tube, and more.
Combine use of the mouse and keyboard arrows to surf the wave. Experiment with keyboard combinations (up, down, right, left or WASD) to do tricks. Use the mouse to control speed, balance and general movement. Move the mouse up and down slowly to carve, move left to lean back and right to lean forward. To increase your speed, lean forward and down. Lean back to regain balance if you start to wobble. To balance your penguin in mid-air and while landing a jump, hold down the mouse button.
Move the mouse above the wave to jump. To flip, make circular movements with the mouse while jumping; be sure to keep the mouse on the screen. Do tricks in mid-air to perform spin moves. Hold the mouse button down to grind on top of the wave after a jump.
If you bail, a lifeguard will set you up for another wave. You can wipeout up to three times before it’s game over.
