I hope you enjoy the trailer of this 2009 movie, but other than that the movie has disappeared in the basement of unsuccessful films.
Rotten Tomatoes' Tomatometer gave ;H2O Extreme a 50% Audience rating. However no critics reviewed the movie. The content found on this page is from the site's archived pages and other outside sources.

** If you are ever in the Austin or San Antoni area and have some time to burn, it is worth a trip to the Texas Ski Ranch. This 70-acre action sports paradise located in New Braunfels, TX. What makes TSR unique is the culture and facilities surrounding the lakes. Riders can indulge in just about every board sport under the sun including snowboarding, skateboarding and SUP.
When it comes to wakeboarding and cable parks, the Texas Ski Ranchis consistently ranked as one of the top facilities in the world. With three cable systems and a boat lake there is truly something for all levels of water sports enthusiasts. First time riders can take advantage of their incredible coaching and beginner cables. More advanced riders can charge the park and hit structures.
Head South on Interstate 35. Take Exit 195 for Watson Lane and take a left over the bridge to cross the interstate. Continue heading south on the access road and TSR will be on your left.
From San Antonio:
Head North on Interstate 35. Take Exit 193 for Kohlenburg Lane. Continue heading north on the access road and TSR will be on your right about a mile down.
We were visiting grandparents in San Antonio when Hurricane Sandy hit New York and the East coast in 2012. We went to the Texas Ski Ranch three times. We all loved the water activities, but my teenage kids really loved the oportunity to wakeboard in the middle of Texas, no less. One of the instructors told us about the screening that was held there for the movie, H2O Extreme. When we returned to the deary, cold east coast I headed to our store in lower Manhattan to access the damage. Everyone I had spoken with told me that lower Manhattan and particularly the South Street Ferry area was a disaster. I had contacted a company that did flood cleanup in NYC before leaving Texas. They were overwhelmed with calls from owners of commercial and residential properties, but wrere able to fit us in. My partner met them at our restaurant to survey the devestation. Our restaurant's basement was flooded, but the main restaurant seemed to be intact. If we had been located three blocks south, I think we would have lost the entire restaurant. Sunlight Water Damage Restoration Services specialized in the cleanup and remediation such as ours. Four years later you would never know the litany of woes due to the water damage that we dealt with. But unlike many other businesses in the area we survived and are doing well.
