By now you’ve heard the question and clicked the link, but Who Is Pepper?

Well, The Pepper Video is a movie directed by Jon Stark about a like-minded group of friends who all look at snowboarding differently, but share the same drive, stoke and desire to test themselves while strapped in. Who Is Pepper? is a behind the scenes series created by Cole Taylor to broadcast the backstory of the upcoming movie and the riders who will appear on The Pepper Video marquee come this fall.

Who Is Pepper? Episode 5 jumps into the life of Mikey Rencz. Coming out of Squamish, BC, Mikey has been a full time snowboarder since the age of seven. From pondering the halfpipe during ski club lunches to devouring the backcountry as one of the veterans in the Pepper crew, take a look at Mikey’s career and how showing Whistler off to the rest of the roster while filming for Pepper stacks up against the rest of his resume.
