http://www.surfwisefilm.com/ Like many American outsider-adventurers, Dorian "Doc" Paskowitz set out to realize a utopian dream. Abandoning a successful medical practice, he sought self-fulfillment by taking up the nomadic life of a surfer. But unlike other American searchers like Thoreau or Kerouac, Paskowitz took his wife and nine children along for the ride, all eleven of them living in a 24 foot camper. Together, they lived a life that would be unfathomable to most, but enviable to anyone who ever relinquished their dreams to a straight job. The Paskowitz Family proved that America may be running out of frontiers, but it hasn't run out of frontiersman.
"Most parents say 'Go to school. Don't go swimming with sharks, that's dangerous.
Our parents said, you can go swimming with sharks, but you're not fuckin' going to
school—that shit's dangerous!"
- Salvador Paskowitz, the 7th Paskowitz son « less
