  • The Best and Longest Running Surf School In the UK

    All our surf lessons, from the half day to the 6 lesson course are tailored towards your individual level of surfing which we will assess on the day.

    On every session, we usually have a mixture of beginners and those that may have had 1or 2 lessons and perhaps more advanced surfers, therefore we will usually have at least 2 or 3 instructors working, (one for each level).

    We always assess your ability on the day, and assign you to the correct group – this ensures that you willnever receive the same lesson twice, as you will progress through the levels.

    Whether you are a complete beginner or surf regularly, you will benefit from a lesson with the Escape Surf School. As well as teaching the technique and skill of surfing we also place a great emphasis on safety and water awareness. We pride ourselves on being flexible, so if there is not a course to suit you, just give us a call and we can discuss your requirements.

    All lessons take place on Towan, Great Western or Fistral beach, all of which are less than 5 minutes walk from the school. So we meet at the school, where we all change into wetsuits, and then proceed to the best beach for the conditions, tides and clients ability.

    The prices include board and wetsuit (and boots / gloves if required) there are no hidden charges.

    We are proud of our coaches, all of which as well as being ISA qualified, are all excellent surfers with years of experience in the ocean. We believe this is invaluable when it comes to giving you the knowledge and confidence to take to the water!

    All our coaches are ISA  Qualified Level 1 or 2 and  qualified RLSS beach lifeguards, offering professional coaching in a safe environment.

    As well as relying on coaching certificates, Escape Surf School also provides additional coaching to all our instructors, to ensure they are all teaching at the high standards we set ourselves.

    Head Coach: Mike Young

    Originally from South Africa, our elite coach Mike is one of the most experienced surfers and coaches in Newquay, if not the whole of the UK. As well as surfing for fun, he has made a living surfing professionally all over the world and has competed in many WQS events over the years.

    After surfing and coaching around the world and in Europe, Mike moved to the UK in 2001 and became Head Coach of the Escape Surf School.
