The Escape Surf School Newquay Cornwall

Our new puropse built facilities were opened in August 2018, and we believe they are the best in Newquay. Warm, dry, comfortable and in a perfect location, our facilties mean that the whole experience of surfing with us is welcoming and enjoyable. We've thought of everything to make your visit the best it can be!

Hot Showers

After your lesson, you can shower off in one of our 3 "rainfall" hot showers. As you can see from the smiles, this is sometimes the favourite part of the day, especially on a cold one! We also supply plastic free soaps and shampoo bars, from our partner Six Foot and Clean


Heated Changing Rooms 

Escape Surf School has heated seperate male and female changing rooms, with plenty of hanging, and storage space.  The changing rooms can cater for up to 40 people at a time and are secure, so you can leave your belongings here whilst you are enjoying your surf lessons.



We've even got hairdryers and straigheners (and plenty of mirrors), so after your lesson, you can go straight out on the town!

Bar and Restaurant 

We are based at Belushis bar and Restaurant, a funky modern surf bar, located in the heart of Newquay, overlooking Towan beach and Newquay. All surf school guests receive 25% discount off all food , so why not wind down here after your lesson with a drink and some delicious food from the menu. The bar has arguably one of the best views in Newquay, overlooking the whole of the bay, and with a huge sundrenched terrace, its the perfect place to relax and soak up the views.


Board Storage

If you have your own equipment and want to store it at the Surf School, rather than carrying it back to your accommodation, you are very welcome to, just ask when you come for your surf lesson

Video Lounge

Before your lesson, hang out in our video lounge, where we might be showing the latest surf movies. Or perhaps we'll be showing you the video footage from your surf lesson!


Surf Hire 

We also offer surf hire, so if you mastered the technique and want to practise on your own, you can hire the equipment from us. Check out the Hire page for details and prices


Our ESS store is also on site for you to check out our ESCAPE hoodies, hats and shirts plus the latest surf technique guides to help you keep discovering your surf style. Check out the online store for details and prices
