Mitch and Egor travel to industrial Port Talbot in South Wales, where Britain's most sucessful ever female surfer, Linda Sharp learnt her trade in one of the most polluted breaks in the UK.

Despite the pollution, Port Talbot has been home to a thriving community of resilient surfers since the late 60s and is known to produce some of the best waves in Wales.
