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.

Phenomenal. I've been going to this surf club every time I am in Cornwall for the last 5 years, and always recommend them and always bring new keen surfers with me, and every time we get an amazing experience. The instructors here are extremely talented, knowledgeable and friendly.

This is our second surf lesson this year. Always a friendly welcome, facilities and equipment excellent. Staff are helpful and very knowledgeable. All the little things like towels, the hot showers, options of gloves and hoods when it’s cold and the changing rooms very well organised. I now feel confident in catching a wave and some local knowledge on the area about sea safety. Looking forward to our next lesson. Highly recommend this surf school no matter what your experience level is. The view is pretty epic to and the cafe upstairs is close for food and drink.

We opted for the 2/hour beginner lesson with Escape and we had a brilliant time. The instructors were all really friendly and knowledgable, spending lots of time getting us familiar with the boards and the techniques, then putting it to practical use. I was worried we would spend lots of time on the beach as opposed as in the water, but the guys really emphasised the importance of being in the water which was great. They’re a great school to go with if you’re in Newquay and they offer lots of insight and support. Just wish we’d booked a few more lessons with them!

The cold weather didn't deter myself and our 2 children, aged 11 and 13 years, to go out and attempt to learn the beginner's basics in surfing. The instructor's passion for surfing was evident in his positivity and enthusiasm in teaching others something that he enjoyed and was very skilled at. My children were surfing the waves within 30minutes whereas I'll have to come again to master the waves!!! We all loved it and would totally recommend doing it!!

I absolutely loved my lesson here. Mike is an incredible surf coach. He is able to break down the complexities of surfing into bite sized chunks. I’ll be doing a lot more surfing with them. I’ve just got out from my first session since the lesson and I’m already noticing improvements. Also had a pro photographer in the water with us and he got some epic shots! Thanks again guys! 🤙🏼
