Simon Dumont, one of the most decorated freestyle skiers and world record holder for the highest air in a quarterpipe joins the WEND Wax Elite World Team.
Dumont dominates freeskiing history with more victories and awards than any other halfpipe skier in the world. In addition to countless awards and podium finishes, Simon is known for setting the world record for highest air in a quarterpipe and also organizing the famed "cubed pipe" photo shoot at Squaw Valley. He rounds out the WEND Elite Team of Daron Rahlves, Lindsey Jacobellis, Kazu Kokubo, Heather McPhie, Nick Goepper, Grete Eliassen, John Teller, Anais Caradeux and Travis Gerrits.
"There are times, when even in a halfpipe, my event can come down to who is running faster, so my wax is as important to me as my whole set up," said Dumont. "WEND gives me the confidence that I will have the speed I need in the halfpipe no matter what the conditions, and with the Olympics coming up, I don't want to leave anything to chance."
"I'm super stoked to be working with Simon," said John Dahl. "Our innovative WEND waxes should give him that push that lands him on the podium."
