The Escape Surf School

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

ALL PER NIGHT PRICES INCLUDE 1 SURFING LESSON AND SOME INCLUDE 1 MEAL AND 1 DRINK. The Escape Surf School is based in Newquay, Cornwall, on the premises of St Christophers Inn, overlooking Towan Beach, with a perfect view of the Surf. The Surf lessons are each 2 hours long with all equipment

The rooms are mostly en-suite with sea views and the beds are in a bunk style, sleeping 4-10

The Bar has a late license open most nights till 1 am with pool table, table football, and a chill out area. It serves fantastic food all day, and all guests receive 10% discount off food and drink.

The per night price includes 1 surf lesson with the Escape Surf School, so if you book 2 nights, you will receive 2 Surfing lessons.

Some of our prices include 1 meal and 1 drink - this would be an item off the "main meals" menu and 1 beer

The surf lessons are each 2.5 hours long and we run 2 a day (usually 10am and 2pm). The price includes board, wetsuit and gloves / boots if required, so there is no extra hire charge to pay

You will be coached by a member of our professional coaching team, all are qualified surf coaches and beach lifeguards, and our head coach, Mike is a pro surfer, currently ranked 10 in the . We surf on either Towan or Fistral beach depending upon the conditions of the day.
