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It superseded all expectations I had on all levels; location, people, scheduling, atmosphere, food etc.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

I haven't been on a board in over 10 years so there was scepticism mixed with excitement before my trip to Almodovar, however I needn't have been worried! The whole team were very warm and welcoming and the conditions were unreal. They quickly got me back to and beyond the level I was before, I was paddle boarding, kayaking and... More

Our son is really into wake boarding and this offers the perfect combination of smooth water and great weather to improve skills. Tuition was great. Safe environment. Friendly staff. The access road is a bit rough but with some care we got our hire car there without any problem.

3 days with my son to improve and perfect wakeboard skills, Stayed on site in really comfortable cabins with aircon. Great bar/ chilled snack area but made outstanding by friendly and helpful staff. Relaxed and competent coaching on a huge lake. Excellent water. 30 deg plus temperature. Do not wanna go home! Cracking place
