Catchin' Waves is a singleplayer game in Club Penguin Rewritten 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 or WASD keys, individually or simultaneously.

This game contained a Game Upgrades catalog, and the Flame Surfboard, Daisy Surfboard, and Silver Surfboard could be brought and used in here. If a Red Puffle was brought, it could 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.

Tricks and Moves

Tricks could be done with the keyboard; WASD or Arrow Keys. If one key is pressed, it would award the player 10 points. If two keys are pressed, it awards 20 points. Different types of tricks, such as grinds, flips, spins, and shooting the tube can be performed with varying amounts of points.
