Gwyn Haslock: still surfing after all these years

Gwynedd Haslock was the pioneer of female surfing in the United Kingdom. More that 60 years after her first ride, she’s still catching waves in Cornwall.

This woman is an example to us all. “Can and Will: Gwyn Haslock” is a short surf documentary about the extraordinary surfing life of the first British female surfing champion.

After dominating the bellyboards, in the 1950s, Haslock decided to try a 10-foot longboard. Back then, these giant surfboards were exclusively used by lifeguards, and wetsuits were not available.
