Maybe it's my Southern California upbringing, but I am so intrigued to see this film, Surf Wise. I've heard the crazy stories of Dorian “Doc” Paskowitz for years, but didn't know a lot of about his adventures with his family, including nine children and his wife, as they traveled the world together as surf nomads in a 24 foot camper.
Surf Wise chronicles Dr. Paskowitz's surfing adventures across the country. Abandoning a successful medical practice, Doc sought self-fulfillment by taking up the nomadic life of a surfer. Together, he and his family lived a life that would be unfathomable to most, but enviable to anyone who ever relinquished their dreams to a nine to five job. Almost evangelical, Doc refused to allow his children to attend school, and instead search for the pursuit of happiness, personal meaning and perfect waves.
