Lindsey Jacobellis is a two-time Olympian with a silver medal at Torino, three-time SBX World Cup Champion, and seven-time X Games Gold medalist, joins the high energy WEND Team. At 26 years Jacobellis is one of the most successful women snowboarders of all time with a record setting twenty-five World Cup victories in SBX & Halfpipe.
“The guys at Wax Research have been nothing but great to me over the years with regards to all my surfing needs”, said Jacobellis. “When they approached me regarding WEND Snow Wax it was logical that I would jump at the chance to be on the team. Couple that with their commitment to helping the Breast Cancer cause, and it adds up to a great partnership. I look forward to doing my best to promote their efforts.”
Jacobellis is a supporter of Breast Cancer research, which Wax Research and WEND support as well. Her Mother was diagnosed with breast cancer but thanks to early detection was able to defeat it. She has partnered with the non-profit Keep A Breast Foundation to raise funds for Breast Cancer research.

“We’ve keep Lindsey supplied with Sticky Bumps surf wax and accessories for years,” noted John Dahl, President of Wax Research. “It’s only natural, as our product evolved into a hi-performance snow wax, to have her part of our WEND program. Lindsey is the icing on the cake of a phenomenal group of riders that make up our world team.”
