Trick Book Edit

SSX Tricky Edit

Moby is fearless and attacks the SSX courses like a buzz saw. His piercings, scars and tattoos make him look rather intimidating, and with his England/West Indian accent, loves to put the Americans off their game. He's one of the younger competitors on the tour at nineteen, and he carves the respect of his fellow competitors on the circuit. Because he's young, Moby is also a bit undisciplined in his approach to racing, and will charge out of the gate no matter how long the course is. With his experience racing BMX and in motocross, he sees snow as a 'cushy' landing, and he takes risks that others wouldn't.

InterviewEdit

What is your favorite course?

  • Mesablanca's the one for me! No losers allowed 'cause it's well hard! Good place to bring yer girl too, what with the waterfalls and sunsets. 'Course, she better be fit to keep up!

What is your favorite trick and why?

  • I call it the Superman Barspin. Start with a nosegrab and turn it into a full-on Superman. Once you're extended, spin the board on its lengthwise axis. Friggin' sweet, it's pukka!

If you didn't snowboard, what would you be doing?

  • Probably watching footy with the lads! I like rippin' it up on me BMX, mucking about in skateparks an' 'angin' with the Moby Massive! I'm also a connoisseur of fine wine; enjoy eclectic music, classical theatre and long romantic walks in the moonlight...

Haven't we also seen you doing some modeling work?

  • Sports gear! I wear their sports gear and they put me in pictures in bike mags and the like. It's not "modeling"!

Have you made any friends on the tour? Enemies?

  • Me best mate's Zoe; she's a right little sort, right fit an' all. I can't stand JP, 'e's more than a bit of a knob. And Mac's a spawny, brain frazzled git! Bah, the little grommet's voice breaks as often as 'e eats snow.

What is your greatest strength? Weakness?

  • Patience. I'm like a predator. I got killer instinct. You know what I mean... When the time is right, I strike! Oh, and no fear. Where angels fear to tread and all that. And I keep me edge all year 'round... BMX in the summer, SSX in the winter. I'm always hungry, mate!

Tell us about your worst wipeout/injury.

  • I don't really remember it because it happened when I was pretty young, but I fell on my bottom so hard I broke it. It still has a crack in it. Guess the worst injury I ever had was a horrendous wipeout on my old bike. That old crock didn't have shocks of any sort on the front, so here I was, tearing out a dirt road on my way home, and I hit some stutter bumps. I was a nipper, only 12... No grip... the bloody handlebars come right out of me hands and the front wheel ends up perpendicular all over the shop. Turned me into hamburger!

Are you keeping it real? Tell us how...

  • I go out every day and give my all for the sake of being better than I was yesterday. I never give up when times are tough and me gear isn't working right, or when I just keep crashing or just can't pull that trick. It's about being the best you can on your board or your bike every time you get on it.

What do you do when you are not snowboarding?

  • I work out a lot. I got muscles on muscles, mate! I also play all kinds of sports from footy to base jumping. This year, I plan to jump off many tall, stationary objects with a snowboard. Then I'm going to do it with a BMX. I also just bought a new drum set and I've been smacking that around.

SSX 3Edit

Raised in the rough and tough streets of Brixton, England, Moby used a BMX bike to get him on the path to international recognition of his extreme athlete prowess. He became recognized as fearless and aggressive, and no one went bigger or better. This time around Moby has raised his confidence level and balanced it with a newfound chill. The opportunity to be challenged in every event, every ride, has left him with a mindset that is cool, calculating, and strategic. He knows there are young riders lined up to knock him off his perch and calmly rejects there ambition. He is often described as a machine, able to win and ride with an almost superhuman proficiency.

Quotes from DJ AtomikaEdit

  • Moby's favorite thing to do when he's not riding? Catching a little footy on the tele. He loves to get rowdy rootin' on his favorite team, Spurs.
  • Moby earn his reputation for being fearless by riding a BMX bike off of rooftops. He returns to the SSX with a new level of confidence and a taste for big air.
  • Moby brings the mean streets of Brixton, England to this winter wonderland. He's rough, he's tough, some people say he's superhuman.
  • People might not know that Moby has a culinary side. He grew up in and around the Brixton Market and often cooks up quite a spread for his mates.

SSX (2012)Edit

BioEdit

Moby Jones was born in Brixton, England in 1982 to Trinidadian immigrant parents. Growing up on the rough streets of Brixton meant growing up fast but Moby managed to find a way around that rule; at age ten he had a skateboard thrust into his hands. Moby took to the sport like a duck to water. He began entering into local skate competitions and found himself winning more often than not. After a short while he was picked up by a local skate shop and given his first taste of what sponsorship could offer. After that more lucrative deals started to flow in; he was making a name for himself and it was paying off in dividends.

RelationshipsEdit

Psymon StarkEdit

Psymon and Moby first met in SSX Tricky. Although not much interaction is shown, both share one common friend, which is Zoe Payne. In SSX 3, while playing as either Psymon or Moby, the comps of each other seem to be aggressive towards each other. In SSX Blur, the two become main foes as Psymon gets a new rider partner and Zoe sticks with Moby. It is believed their rivalry started SSX 3, when Dj Atomika comments on Moby and Zoe's relationship.

JP ArsenaultEdit

Former rival of Moby's. He, like Zoe, hates him mostly due to JP's narcissistic demeanor. Moby even said "JP, you say you're the real deal, but you're just a charity case." JP responded disdainfully with "Suck eggs, Moby!"
