Escape Surf School

All the family can learn to surf with our approved surf school, led by Pro Surfer, Mike Young, a private lesson will get the family up and riding the waves.

The beautiful Towan Beach is the venue for your lesson, the beach faces North-West which means it picks up swell (which us surfers love) but can be very sheltered from the prevailing westerly winds, which means the waves are usually clean, and lined up perfectly – ideal for learning to surf, reception can book discounted lessons for guests.
