Surf's Way Up
The two players find themselves standing on jetboards, hovering over a short road-like expanse. When they reach the end of the expanse, the players are surfing openly through outer space. In the background, Earth can be seen.
The goal is to go through colored circular point goals with different point values. However, the player must watch out for the Bowser goals with his emblem shown on them, or else their score will instantly drop to zero. Whoever has more points at the end of the minigame wins.
The winning player performs their victory pose, and launches far ahead of the losing player on their jetboard and out of sight as the losing player sulks on their jetboard behind them. If both players have the same number of points, both players will perform their losing poses and the jetboards will not speed ahead.
