Fantastic skiing location, great food,  friendships rekindled  and new friendships formed. Many thanks to Mat for his coaching and patience. Una had everything organised as usual for a hassle free trip. Thanks also to Debbie, Rick(meat paella) and ladies in the kitchen for keeping us fed and happy. Any and I mean any skier of whatever ability will come away... More

The location is awesome. on a lac. The staff and the team are more than friendly. You feel you're part of a family. the skiing experience is amazing. I went there barely knowing how to get out of the water on bi skis. I ended up my 5 days skiing slaloming on the mono skis. Kids loved it as well.... More

We visited for the first time in April and had a great time. I travelled with my young daughter and the coaches helped us both to progress our riding. We stayed in a cabin on the lake and The accommodation is no frills but is very comfortable, clean and the cabin had air con. This fits with the relaxed vibe... More

I traveled here with a group of friends for a week of wakeboarding and wakesurfing and it did not disappoint. We took flights to Seville and hired cars to take the trip to Xtreme. The route is straightforward and roads are easy to navigate. Once you get to Xtreme the fun begins. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming, making sure... More

Popped over to Extreme Gene on a tour of Spain. So glad i did. The coaching is first class. Every fall is followed by detailed reasons of what you are doing wrong and very quickly you adjust and progress. Shout out to Josh who was a great laugh and helped me learn boat boarding very quickly after a few years... More

It superseded all expectations I had on all levels; location, people, scheduling, atmosphere, food etc. It was magic. It is definitely my at-least-once-a-year go to place. One thing we found extremely useful ( having rented a car )

It was my first visit here and I was a little worried-as a lone female traveller without anything like expert wakeboarding skills - whether I would 'fit'. In fact, to their credit, staff and guests here make a real effort to ensure people feel welcome and involved; I never once felt alone. The outfit is small and personal .The food... More

My husband, Son & I visited Xtreme Gene a couple of weeks ago, with friends. None of us had done any kind of watersports before so we didn't quite know what to expect, but we were game! All I can say is we probably had the best weekend of the summer here. We had 3 sets each and it was... More

This is like being welcomed by a huge family! Including the dogs (who are gorgeous). We went with our 19 and 12 year old to teach them from scratch and succeeded in getting them hooked! Josh and Callum were patient and kind instructors who connected with the boys. Accommodation is basic but very comfortable and the whole place has an... More
