Hydro Thunder Hurricane Cheats

Near the beginning is a silver revolving door that appears to be solid. Go through it and you will find a blue boost and a red boost. To get the red boost you have to use a Hydro Jump (hold Brake and use Boost).
In NY Disaster, when you are racing through the left side of the subway tunnel with the Rescue boat cutting you off and bumping into you, instead of jumping for the nine second red boost in the center to the right, bash into the Rescue boat. Your boost level will remain where it was for the remainder of the race.

Hint: Far East: Shortcut

When you are about half way through the level you will reach a place where the water will drop three times. Just when your on the third one, immediately do your booster jump when you get on the edge. When your boat jumps in the air, hold Boost. If done correctly, you should land on top of a place above the tunnel ahead. This will make it much faster than having to go in a big "L". Note: This requires some practice.

When you pass the first dragon shortly before the finish line, make sure you have some boost remaining for the little island holding the second dragon. If you boost/jump through the lanterns on the island, you will get extra boost. You can get an eight second boost if you hit both lanterns precisely.

Near the beginning of Lost Island you will see a waterfall. You can go through it and it will take you through a small tunnel where you can grab a blue boost and a red boost as well as get way ahead of the other boats in the race. Later on in the course you will see another waterfall. You can't go through this one but you can go up it. At the top of the waterfall you will find a small passage with a red boost at the end. WARNING unless you are way way ahead of the other boats I would not go up this waterfall without a boost tank that is at least half full because it takes a fair amount of time and it isn't a shortcut, in fact you lose time but if you have a boost tank that is at least half full the red boost should fill your tank and you can boost for just about the rest of the race if you hit all the other remaining boosts which will more than make up for the time lost going up the waterfall.
