-Noah Fraser-

My wife and I have lived in Reno for about three years now with our two dogs.  I’m a hydrologist by trade and am currently working on a PHD in the same at UNR.  I’ve lived and breathed water since mom was kayaking while pregnant with me.  For 21 years now I’ve been addicted to whitewater in all shapes and sizes: creeking, rodeo, downriver, squirtboating, canoeing, and raft guiding.  One of the main reasons for our relocation to Reno was the opportunity to boat every day after work, or ski when it’s cold, or mountain bike to workout the legs.  Sometimes we do all three, awesome!!

Toby Headshot

An athlete at heart, Toby Ebens was drawn to whitewater during the Truckee River flood of 1999/2000. From learning his roll to the head of the classroom, he has never looked back. Now the lead instructor for the much sought after kayaking class at the University of Nevada, Reno, Toby teaches this accredited physical education class as well as hosts the weekly roll sessions at UNR. Also a volunteer for the Truckee River FoundationToby assists with charity events and organizes and hosts the annual Safety Fair. When not in his boat, he can be found enjoying the outdoors: skiing, backpacking, climbing and mountain biking with his wife Ruth and dog Fiji.
