Owner & Captain

Mike & Rufus

Hi guys, I’m Mike Crow, the owner of NLTBR. I grew up in the north east and moved to CA from Vermont after college on a whim. I sold everything I owned, bought a 89’ camper-van and started driving West. I reached Truckee, CA and instantly knew I found a place to call home. Tahoe has everything I need in my own backyard, from snowboarding on the mountains to wake surfing on the lake. I always look forward to being able to show others the adventures, beauty and fun Tahoe has to offer!

Operations Manager & Captain


Hi, I’m Connor Bishop and I am from Folsom, CA. I moved to the Reno/Tahoe area in 2016 and graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno in 2020. This is my third year with NLTBR. I love Lake Tahoe for snowboarding, hiking, cliff jumping, and especially boating. I am excited to show you around the lake and share my experience with you!

I’m Jesse Valenti, I grew up in orange county, NY, attended Utica College and graduated in 2014. In May 2017, I went seeking adventure and ended up in the Outer Banks North Carolina as a hang gliding instructor. That winter I was introduced to Tahoe’s magic.
