Nine exotic levels with seven world-class wakeboarders take gamers on the most exciting wakeboarding adventure to come to the Mac and PC, showcasing the most impressive water physics yet.

Take on the surfer lifestyle – drop huge waves, survive challenging barrel tubes, and maneuver around other surfers - in Kelly Slater’s Pro Surfer. Witness surfing through the eyes of 6-time World Champion Kelly Slater or one of eight other champion surfers as you travel the world, visiting over 30 challenging and exotic levels. Authentic surfboards, accessories and wetsuits, an awesome soundtrack and an array of real and fantasy tricks in Kelly Slater’s Pro Surfer® provide a surfing experience like no other.

Tired of the water? Drop into the ultimate skating challenge with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 4. Players can skate as the legendary Tony Hawk or 13 other professional skaters, through enormous free roaming levels as they take on 190 progressively harder goals. You have to build your skills to be able to perform 14 of the greatest skateboarding stunts of all time! With all new tricks – skitch behind cars, skate on moving objects, transfer over spines – and the added pressure of earning respect from other skaters, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 4 is the ultimate skating challenge.

The Adrenaline Sports Pack is available for order from the IMG Store for $19.95.
