Girl in the Polluted Curl

THE ONLY Girl in the Polluted Curl, meet Britain's best ever female surfer, Linda Sharp ex-European champion.

Did you know Britain had a European champion? Back in the day when female surfers were true pioneers, the waters ran with mercury and wetsuits were worn by seals. Halcyon days indeed.

Mitch and Egor travelled to industrial Port Talbot in South Wales, where Linda Sharp learnt her trade in one of the most polluted breaks in the UK.
