The Escape Surf School Newquay Cornwall

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

Newquay is renowned for its beautiful beaches. If you want to really explore Newquay, you need to try and visit all 9 (yes 9) beaches, each slightly different from the next withy different facilities and vistas. For yours and everyone else's safety always swim at a Lifeguarded beach and always do as the Lifeguards tell you.

The RNLI give the following advice:

  • Always swim at a lifeguarded beach
  • Swim between the red and yellow flags
  • Never swim alone
  • Know your beach safety flags
  • Never use inflatables in strong winds or rough seas
  • If you get into trouble, stick your hand in the air and shout for help
  • If you see someone else in trouble, tell a lifeguard. If you can’t see a lifeguard call 999 or 112 and ask for the Coastguard
  • Find out about the beach you’re going to before you visit
  • Check tide times before you go
  • Read and obey local hazard signs

Please remember that the lifeguards don’t operate all year round, so if you aren’t sure where to swim or surf, come and ask for our advice at the surf school
