Quotes from DJ Atomika:Edit

  • Elise isn't busy kicking butt on the SSX Circuit; she's building a business empire. Sponsorships and a modeling career keep this superwoman in flight.
  • SSX trainers say Elise Riggs passed the preseason physical but the circuit is still buzzing with speculation about her recovery after a big wave surfing accident wreaked havoc on her ACL.
  • In the summer time Elise Riggs turns from shredder girl into surfer girl, but that doesn't mean she goes soft. It's nothing but big wave surfing for this girl.
  • Elise Riggs says she's back with a vengeance and feeling better than ever. Her ACL scare meant pulling two-a-days this preseason getting fit and focused.

SSX On TourEdit

A born self promoter, when she's out of the media's eye she gets restless. With a steady bubbling of aggression under the surface, Elise has been known to go 'on a tear' when the circuit is done. 

Seeking an endless stream of challenges to keep things fresh, Elise has tried her hand at launching her own 'Amazon-type' clothing line, starring in a few films (B Horror, Sexy Female Commando), dating and chewing up a long list of A list celebrity suitors, and showing a complete lack of restraint when it comes to getting into trouble.

Ambitious, driven - if she's not fighting for gold on the SSX circuit she's tearing the place apart due to boredom. With skiing debuting on the circuit this year - Elise sees an opportunity to reinvent herself - and add another series of wins to her career.

  • Nationality: Canadian
  • Height: 5'11"
  • Weight: 155 lbs
  • Age: 28
  • Blood Type: O-
  • Stance: Skier
  • AKA: Bombshell

After the tour... Edit

Gave up everything and moved to Mexico to sell shell necklaces. Turned business into multi-billion dollar Jewelry empire. Bought Canada from Tyson - turned it into a llama farm. 


Even though she left The Tour, Elise refuses to leave snowboarding behind, much to the chagrin of her agent and insurers she still gets out to shred between film shoots and convention appearances. Elise has found a perfect balance in her life between acting and riding and she’s never been more content. Always searching for the next rush, Elise has recently been consumed by a new obsession: base-jumping with a wing-suit. Contour flying down a mountainside at 150 km per hour delivers a rush unmatched by anything she could do on a snowboard alone and quickly Elise realizes that she has to find a way to marry the two.

Relationships Edit

Eddie WachowskiEdit

Eddie is a friend of hers, though it's unknown how they became close. She's one of the few that can tolerate his immature behavior. Although Eddie didn't make a proper appearance in SSX 3, Elise's profile for that game mentions him as a friend.

JP ArsenaultEdit

JP is a current friend of Elise. It's possible that she used to date him, or still is. Both have similar personalities, but Elise is slightly less narcissistic than JP. She's one of the few friends that he has.

Marisol Diez DelgadoEdit

Marisol is one of Elise's rivals, though it was never explained how they started to hate each other. Both are sexy and sultry, often fighting over who's hotter. She didn't make a proper appearance in SSX 3, but Elise's profile for that game lists Marisol as her victim. Elise's taunts to her include calling her chicken legs and calling her clothes cheap. Marisol responds with insults in Spanish.

Allegra SauvagessEdit

It was never stated in Elise's profile, but Allegra has her as her victim on her SSX 3 profile. This is mostly because Allegra is a tomboy, and can't stand idealistic beauty.

Zoe PayneEdit

Though never stated in either of their profiles, it seems that Zoe, like Allegra, can't stand Elise's stuck-up and pseudo-narcissistic personality, while Elise can't stand Zoe's anti-conformist personality.
