i just can't stop returning to escape surf school! from the most best coaching in surf to the fun social side of escape surf school.
my friends and i decided a late break to newquay was the one for us they have never tried surfing so straight away ringing the lovely simone! (who was very patient in our booking going back and forth checking prices for surf and finding us a accommodation)
all extremely organised and happy to help with all questions.
I'm used to staying at the white house newquay with my mother - boutique hotel beautiful- but as we were a group and a loud bunch so simone sorted us out with a apartment one one seven, it was large spacious and definitely was a bargain threw the surf school!
the surfing is always so lively and social in the morning hyping everyone up for the surf sorting you out with the right wetsuits guys and gals changing rooms, equipment ect.
we went to fistral to surf due to waves at tolcarne which was great experience.
the groups have a chat and warm up before entering the sea.
i have private with mike every time I'm down and its worth every penny, he is truly the best coach i have ever come by, not just in surfing but in all sports.
i have adhd, dyslxia, dyspraxia and I'm on austic spectrum and his enthusiasm and love for the sea and his great knowledge in this sport threw years of surfing gives him a edge to coaching.
you learn quicker with mike, he teaches you not only about the surfing but about the beach currents safty fitness and also the best places to eat!
mike and everyone at escape surf school has so much time to give and even have a drink with you after the surf. they will try and help you find places to go, recommend things they've done ect
belushi is right next to surf school throughly recommend eating and drinking in there and checking out the views!
shout out to Sarah who is with escape surf school and takes the pictures and puts them in belushis for you to watch with your drink!
i am not a great surfer but i do keep coming back to escape as every time i return they accommodate me in every single way i cannot fault anything.
lets not forget how amazing newquay !

I have done bodyboarding but never surfed before. I decided to book a private lesson with Escape and I've had the best couple of hours. Thanks to Mike Young and his skills I managed to stand on the board and catch few waves. Recommended! Can't wait to come back for few more lessons!

Really good school. Flexible lessons, good group sizes, really good equipment and tailored to your ability and very hands on. Have done a few surf lessons and really impressed with these guys, will definitely be back :)

We booked a beginners surf lesson for our family of 4, we all thoroughly enjoyed it - it was 2 hours of great fun, good instruction, our friendly instructor made us all feel at ease & got us up and going pretty quickly. Wetsuits, vest & boards included and hot shower at end was v welcome!!

We had a family private lesson with Pidge.

Given the calm waters we did need to walk to fistral beach which the children found a little hard but was not too bad.

Pidge was brilliant, he made instructions fun and easy to understand. He also had plenty of tips of places to go for the rest of our holiday.

All of us found it fun and want to go again.

Within the session we all made it to our knees and my daughter managed to stand.

The whole team are a very friendly bunch and I'm sure we will use them again.
