Surfwise: The Amazing True Odyssey of the Paskowitz Family

Doug Pray’s documentary delves into the often inspiring, sometimes shocking life of 85-year-old Dorian “Doc” Paskowitz, a renowned surfer, surf camp owner, doctor and sex guru who, together with his wife, brought up nine children. Paskowitz raised his family in a camper on the beach, home-schooling them and requiring them to follow a strict lifestyle regimen. Now, his grown children speak out about how their unique upbringing affected them.
