In Zeebo Extreme: Jetboard players race in slalom style races by passing either to the left or right of colored buoys. If players miss a total of five of the buoys, they are eliminated from the race. Players have a turbo that will give a temporary speed boost. The turbo is charged by going to the correct side of the buoys.
There are four playable characters, all of which play the same and three tracks to race on.
