Or, for family and friends who do not participate in the lessons, to just enjoy the fantastic panorama and the variety of our menu, with specializations in sea food, natural juices and smoothies or just using the WIFI.

Escuela del Mar Starts their classes with a theoric session in the beach for around 20 minutes, they provide safe instructions out of water to guarantee safety and knowledge once the student is already in the wave.  From there they depart by boat specially equipped for surfing to take the best waves of Black Rock or from any surrounding beaches according to sea conditions, they go straight to the surf break.
