Catchin' Waves is a game about surfing located at the Cove. In this game, the player must move their cursor up and down to go fast and do tricks to get coins. In order to perform tricks, the player must press the Arrow Keys or WASD, individually or simultaneously. This game contains a Game Upgrades catalog, and the Flame Surfboard, Daisy Surfboard, and Silver Surfboard can be brought and used in here. If a Red Puffle is brought, it can surf alongside the player and earn extra coins.

Game modes

Catchin' Waves features four different game modes.

  • Surf Lesson: The player will learn how to surf. This serves the purpose of being a tutorial in case you don't know how to play, and it awards the Graduate Stamp upon completing all of the instructions and finishing the wave alive.
  • Freestyle: The player can surf freely and do whatever they want.
  • Competition: Follow the judges instructions to make them happy. You will get three tasks (do a certain trick, do lots of flips, have perfect balance, etc.) that will appear in the bottom-right corner of the screen. This lasts for three rounds, with different objectives each time.
  • Survival: The hardest mode. The player must survive a very long time on a dangerously fast wave. This mode features exclusive obstacles, like icebergs and a shark. 500 coins are awarded to the player who can complete it.
