The Escape Surf School offers surf and stay at Christopher’s Inn available for all types of seasons. The surf tends to be more consistent throughout spring and autumn, compared to summer time, so it’s a great time of year to come and learn to surf or improve your surfing ability. You may also want to consider off season where Newquay is a great place to visit. The beaches and waves are quiet, the water isn’t that cold, the locals come out and the town reverts to the old fishing village vibe that it’s once had, with the surfers thrown in the mix of course!
The surf & stay is the most popular surf & accommodation package. The rooms sleep 4-10 shared dorm style and most are ensuite with sea views. For the girls there are also some all-female dorms.
The lessons are tailored to your current ability so whether you are a complete beginner, or are looking to improve your skills, then the surf and stay could be the package for you! On every session, The Escape Surf School usually have a mixture of beginners and those that may have had 1 or 2 lessons and perhaps more advanced surfers, therefore they will usually have at least 2 or 3 instructors working, (one for each level). They will always assess your ability on the day, and assign you to the correct group - this ensures that you will never 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 they also place a great emphasis on safety and water awareness. 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.
This is based at St Christopher’s Inn, which is one of Newquay premier hostels. The location of the hostel is second to none, perched on the cliff with spectacular views overlooking Towan Beach and the whole of Newquay Bay (and right next door to the surf school!)
During the holidays, you will be served with simple breakfast and offers discounts of food and drinks at Belushis Bar & Restaurant.
