The inspiring and tumultuous story of 85-year old surfer, health advocate and sex guru, Dr. Dorian "Doc" Paskowitz, his wife Juliette, and their nine children who were all home-schooled and raised in a small camper on the beach, where they surfed and had to adhere to the strict diet and lifestyle of animals in the wild.
Surfwise is a documentary about a former physician named Dorian "Doc" Paskowitz, who in the late fifties gave up every material goods to dedicate his entire life to surfing, travelling from different places in his caravan along with his wife and his nine children, eight boys and one girl, who all knows how to surf. They later start a surfing school. This documentary follows all the Paskowitz' and each tells their stories about how their upbringing was, the advantages and the disadvantages of not living the conventional life. None of the children went to school, which made it impossible for some of them to follow their actual dreams.

A mind-boggling and kind of inspiring documentary about a guy who decided to chuck it all and follow the waves - difference was, he had a wife and nine kids to cart along with him. I was lucky enough to see this at a screening that held a Q&A with many of the family members afterwards and surprisingly, they all turned out to be pretty cool, well-adjusted people. If you can find it at a theatre, it's a great alternative to the typical summer blockbusters that are out right now.
Rejecting normal is as problematic as accepting it, despite the cliché on the poster. This is because the way of wisdom is paved with experience, but experience does not discriminate between good and bad––it is everything, all the extremes and the things in between. This is a remarkable and staggeringly complex idea, especially when it is lived rather than merely thought about. But thinking is a good start. I can't quite get this documentary out of my thoughts.

Ovaj film sam gledala s Anom L. Nakon sat vremena dvd je riknuo.
Kraj ovog filma pogledala sam par dana kasnije. Ovaj film zapravo nije nesto posebno.
I'm ready to travel the world and surf. The wife? Not so much. Overall a pretty great story.
when I saw this I wanted to quit my job, sleep outside, live off the land, and travel. A crazy idea. A man with a giant set. And an intresting outlook on the decisions parents make and how it effects the children.
