A good one-bird strategy for Angry Birds Surf and Turf level 5 is to use the first yellow bird to pierce wood veil protecting the TNT. With a few tries you should destroy most of the level and pop all the pigs. The score in the video below is 112,260.

Aim the first yellow bird slightly above 0 degrees and activate its speed boost immediately. Goes through the group of 3 small planks, through the thin wooden barrier, through the thicker one, then the TNT.

Yes, the key was to accelerate soon after shooting…it seems to make him go through much easier and smoother than a late boost ;-)

Truly confirmed. Strech the slingshot with a finger and leave another one on the touchscreen. This will make the bird accelerate immediatly.

This acceleration off the line tactic is interesting but just as much damage can be done by aiming slightly higher and speed boosting closer to the target.

I just got the top score on this level using the tactic mentioned by kartflyer, it seems as if it does aid in getting higher scores so thank you for posting it. I imagine that I need to post proof, so I’ve uploaded the screenshot of the game end frame and will post the link here.

After many tries, I was finally able to get the duck. End result was 500 points. That is it.

Thanks Dom, I tried to no avail and was wondering if it was worth trying more. Seems like something better than that should happen. ;)

I had better luck with a higher trajectory and boosting at last possible second.

P.S. I hate one-bird levels that are wishy washy like this one. One shot you’re not even clearing half of the debris and looking at 2 stars. Next shot, you’re looking at hardly anything left but the watermelon trees.

P.P.S. I love that watermelons grow on trees in Angry Birds land! :)

I also noticed another key to a higher score here. If your bird skims and does damage to the front two stone blocks holding in the TnT, it boosts your score. It also helps if your bird carries through the building out the other side and does damage to the wood out there.

@rdnzlrips82 Had success with the little higher fling and activated it right before impact as RD mentioned. It was a direct hit on the tnt and did a lot of damage but still cannot get those watermelon trees.

I had the best luck following Ripsys strat as well, I also noticed if you do a bit of damage to the glass at the end it can really add to your points as well! As an aside, has anyone else noticed that if the fishing rod isn’t destroyed it takes a life of its own and keeps hopping around destroying things until it leaves the screen? It’s a bit of a creep factor to watch! Thank you @rdnzlrips82 for a great alt strat! :) OB another on the Ripsy tab if you will! ;)

Wow, this was not an easy one.

I was stuck at 117k for 2 days before deciding to use my mind instead of flinging blindly and to find a way to squeeze the extra k from this level.

Here is goes: the idea is to delay as much as possible the explosion of the TNT, letting time for the structure to collapse a little.

So instead of searching a direct hit, the first bird is shot (and accelerated almost immediately) low enough to take the 3 small vertical wood blocks, and to touch the TNT without detonating it.
Here is a pic:

At this point, 3 things can happen:
1. Nothing, the bird vanishes before doing something. Honestly that most of the time.
2. The bird rebounds once before detonating the TNT. This is quite good and I got 119k and a lot of high 118k with this.
3. The bird slides down and detonate the lower TNT box. That’s the best case, and combined with a lucky detonation and debris dispersion it led to the highscore (for now).

Using this strategy and depending on the delay you can score as much as 30k before the detonation.

Here is the screen showing the final destruction:

And here is the highscore screen:

It’s time to try the next level ;-)

Hope it helps.

So it’s the end of May 2014 and I’m still no further on with this level and have no clue as to how the top score was achieved. All I know it was on an Android Tablet and the closest to it is 14k away on an iPad. The rest of us are just “also-rans”. I think I will have to have a lie down and reconsider my options!

122240 for the daily challenge.

This is a one-bird clear but there is a little trick here that I, very surprisingly I might add, don’t see mentioned anywhere.
If you fire the yellow bird a tiny bit lower so he hits the side of the double stone bricks they will sometimes be knocked into the tnt and create a bigger explosion for considerably more points. It’s somewhat repeatable (once every 10 minutes?) and gives considerably more points. You should accelerate from the sling because you need maximum horizontal momentum.

First picture shows the remaining debris. Second picture as proof for @sweetp

@angrychicken Thanks for posting that suggestion on lowering one’s aiming point to where yellow bird will the two stone blocks. That small difference in the impact point certainly makes a difference. Before it was all I could do to get 118k, with your minor modification I got a better score.

Immediate acceleration, through the horizontal wood on top of the three small vertical ones. Skimming the stones in front of TNT slowing down the he bird a bit before setting of TNT. 121400 should be good enough for a Silver Underdog ?

122750 with one bird for the daily challenge.

Since my previous strat was not working anymore (difference between the PC and Android platforms I guess), and I was unable to gather the patience necessary for @angrychicken strat, I started pounding at the top left corner of the left stone of the double stone bricks.

I am not sure that it can qualifies as an alternate strategy though.

Anyway, I was able to get a good bunch of 118k+ scores with this, a few 120k+ ones and the one giving the top score for now.

Here is the trajectory and final result.

And the highscore screenshot.

121160/1. The strat I used is similar to others, but I visualized it differently. Above the leftmost piggie are three vertical wood pieces topped by a fourth horizontal piece. I aimed for that, trying to destroy at least 3 of the four pieces. If the angle is correct, Chuck then proceeds through more wood, skimming the top of the two concrete blocks before setting off the TNT. This will likely result in at least 70K in damage. 80K in damage is rare, but I managed to get it three times over the course of a LOT of flings. I believe that the top score is achievable with this strat. Aiming tip: Pull Chuck back in the sling with the bird at about 7 o’clock, then rotate clockwise until the space between the two bands disappears. Then go just a pixel or two more clockwise and you will be very close to the very narrow window in which this strat works. Activate immediately upon release.
