A special board called "Old School" looks like a NES controller and makes the small Mario jump noise when you jump, and the 'bump' sound effect when you land.
A Mario sprite from Super Mario All-Stars appears on the bottom of Ricky Winterborn's unlockable "8-bit Soul" snowboard. The alternate version of this board has Luigi on it.
The game's original title was 1080Â° White Storm, similar to Wave Race: Blue Storm. This can be seen in the game's files, where an unused placeholder title screen can be found.
