a great example of the power of choice

Doug Pray’s documentary “Surfwise” is the tale of two parents who raised their nine children in a 24-foot camper – an experience their daughter would later describe as “like weird monkeys in a small monkey cage.”

Dorian “Doc” Paskowitz and his wife, Juliette, both avid surfers and radical thinkers, lived as nomads for decades with their eight sons and one daughter. In a rattletrap camper, they crossed the U.S., eschewing schools and living off the grid. “I just wanted my kids around me, surfing with me, education be damned,” says Paskowitz.
