The Mall features an abandoned location in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2. Several mannequins have lined up around the area as they watch you perform various tricks to earn a higher score and complete multiple tasks. One of the tasks you can complete on this level is to do a nose grind on the Coffee Grind Gap. Where is that location, and how do you do a nose grind?

The pipe you need to hit is in the central area immediately after you leave the starting location. Don’t go to the upper area. Instead, go to the left, there should be a single pipe right next to the middle area that has a large structure in the middle. All you have to do is do a little jump, and then do a grind, but make sure to press up. By pressing up, you can make it so your skater does a nose grind. Have it go, and keep your balance. When you land the move, it should count, and you can complete the challenge.

You want to avoid performing any moves before the nose grind. Doing so could cause the angle to change, and if your board is at the incorrect angle, you can’t complete the move.
