This course is perfect for beginners looking for an introduction to surfing, or just a quick surfing fix! This is a 2 hour surfing lesson, tailored to your ability

For students on a first lesson your coach will introduce all of the skills and techniques necessary to surf with control and safety. Soon enough you will be riding the waves with style!

If you have already surfed, you can then use this session to build on more advanced techniques, including paddling, turning and reading the ocean.

We meet at Escape Surf School, in Newquay, which is located overlooking Towan beach on the premises of Belushis / St Christophers Inn.


Perfect for beginners looking for an introduction to surfing, or if you've surfed already, then ideal to improve and build on your current experience and skill!

For students on their first lesson we will introduce all of the skills and techniques necessary to surf with control and safety.
If you have already surfed, then we will use this session to build on more advanced techniques, including paddling, turning and reading the ocean.

For all abilities, we spend approximately 20 minutes on the beach discussing, technique, skills etc. then the remaining time is spent in the ocean catching waves, with hands-on coaching from our surf coaches.
Our innovative teaching method for beginners which involves holding the tail of the board, whilst the surfer gets to their feet. This helps stabilise the board until the surfer is standing, then they release and you enjoy the amazing feeling of riding the surf!
For those who have already surfed, we will focus on improving your technique and catching more waves.
We always split the groups based on your ability, so if you have already surfed, then you will join an improver or intermediate group.

We had a excellent time, Lucy was super patient and explained everything super well. We had booked this as a birthday surprise for my sister and even though we are extremely nervous anxious people we were made to feel really welcome and were treated warmly by everyone we met from the moment we walked in the door. They even greeted us by name! The weather was absolutely awful, very windy and pouring rain and yet Lucy and Henry were calm and explained proper board safety very well. I even managed to get up on my knees and ride a few waves! Cannot express how much I appreciate how great the coaches are, and how glad I am as a socially anxious person that I chose this place to try a new skill!

Loved my lesson with Lucy, she has the patient of a saint and was a great teacher! Managed to catch a few waves despite never having surfed so I’ll take that as a win. All of the Escape team were super friendly and I’d highly recommend. I’ll be back! :-)

Fantastic experience. Was made to feel really supported to give it a go and didn't feel foolish when I just could not stand up! Will definitely book for more lessons when I have more time!
