Product Description

A riveting account of the life of Dorian ""Doc"" Paskowitz. Surfer, drop-out and sex guru, Paskowitz chose to give up on conventional life in the 1960s, instead taking his family on a journey around Americas top surfing locations, living life according to how he felt it should be lived. Decades later, his choices have split his family, with only a few of his nine children continuing his pursuit of an alternative lifestyle. The rest have not spoken to him in years, until they were re-united for this documentary. The result is a moving account of one familys implosion and a colourful history of the surfing scene in the US.

Review

Doug Prays wonderfully engaging look at love and family and the relentless pursuit of happiness, personal meaning and perfect waves. --The New York Times - Manohla Dargis

Insightful, free-roaming but tautly constructed. --Washington Post - John Anderson

The film is a restrained, straightforward report about an iconoclastic family whose pain and dysfunction play out against a backdrop of tumbling ocean waves, muscular surfers and golden sunsets. --Chicago Tribune - Sid Smith

This was the one and only time I ever felt compelled to buy a documentary and I'm endlessly glad I did it!
Rarely a documentary can manage to make me laugh and cry simultaneously, and this happened with SURF-WISE. The quest for happiness, freedom from society norms and rules, the love for surf and the sea... A great perspective on the world we live in, family, and alternative form of living and raising children, not dependent on money, status, power, or accumulation of wealth, but the willing to find health and creativity. This was not a perfect family though, and the realistic approach to the ups and downs is very interesting.
I advise this to everyone!

Cool counter-culture film. Explores that radical thinking of one of surf's founding fathers. A Stanford educated doctors kicks back at the system, packs up his clan and grazes the coastlines for the best waves. What is interesting is the impact this has on his kids as they grow and try to insert themselves into more traditional lifestyles.

A very inspiring documentary about the life of Dorian Paskowitz and his family. Both happy and sad sides of the story are covered leaving the viewer to decide what to learn from the Philosophy of Dorian.

Well pleased it came in time for Christmas, as I was late ordering.
