Forza Horizon 5 San Sebastian House Roof Bonus Board is one of the most accessible 5000 XP Boards you can smash while exploring Mexico in the video game developed by Playground Games. Compared to other 5000 XP Bonus Boards (check the complete Treasure Map), the FH5 San Sebastian House Roof Board doesn’t require a fast car nor a PR Stunt ramp to be smashed.
Even the stunt you need to perform to smash it is incredibly accessible, even though there is a trick you have to be aware of. As such, if you can’t get the Forza Horizon 5 San Sebastian House Roof XP Board, below I’ll tell you everything you need to know about it.
How To Smash the FH5 San Sebastian House Roof Board
Let’s start with the board’s location so you know where to look for it. As you can see on the map below, this FH5 5000 XP Board is on the southern side of your map in a small town named San Sebastian.
It sits on the roof of a yellow house by the road in the middle of the village. Assuming you’re using my FH5 XP Boards Treasure Map, this is the 38th collectible.
Because this XP Board is not too far from the jumping point you’ll have to use, there is no need to get a supercar or a hypercar if you don’t have one. You can get on that roof with most cars as long as they are not too heavy. For example, it’s harder to get there with a Ford Bronco.
Also, your car’s weight determines the starting location or the point where you’ll start driving toward the jumping point. This point is, in fact, a hill, so if your car is too heavy, you’ll have to drive further from the jumping point.
That’s why I recommend using a Class B or Class A car. As you’ll see in the following images, I used a Bugatti Divo, but only because I won it. Because the car is relatively fast, I had to adapt accordingly, meaning this board became a pain. Therefore, instead of using an S Class car, opt for something a bit slower.
As said, for this XP Board, you’ll have to rely on the terrain to reach the roof. The starting location is marked by a yellow arrow on the map above, north of the board. If you look behind the house where the collectible is sitting, you’ll see a small hill and another shed (right side in the following image).
Your goal is to drive up the hill, and from there, you’ll have to jump on the roof with the board. Except that things are a bit trickier.
Although you can smash this bard by jumping directly on it (assuming you are lucky), you won’t make it to the collectible because you’ll land in front of it if you use a slower car. On the other hand, if your car is too powerful, you’ll jump behind the board at high speed.
That’s why you’ll want to use the roof of the adjacent house. Therefore, start by moving toward the collectible, but keep in mind two things:
- While in the air, pull and hold the brake button
- The roof you’ll have to land on is the one on the left side of the collectible
The idea is straightforward. Your goal is to stop the car on the white roof in my image above. Or the one behind it. If you hit the brake the moment you start flying, you’ll stop before falling from the roof.
If you move too slowly, you’ll land on the other side of the house. With a fast enough car, you can also smash the board while flying, but these attempts will only waste your time. Instead, land on the roof nearby, then drive to the one where the collectible is waiting for you.
Remember that if you don’t make it on your first try, you can always rewind (Y on your Xbox controller) and adjust the car’s speed and direction. Did you smash the Forza Horizon 5 San Sebastian House Roof XP Board? How did you do it?
