Description: "Surfwise" follows the odyssey of 85-year-old, legendary surfer Dr. Dorian "Doc" Paskowitz, his wife Juliette, and their nine children--all of whom were home-schooled on the beaches of Southern California, Hawaii, Mexico and Israel. They surfed every day of their lives and were forced to adhere to a strict diet and lifestyle by their passionate and demanding, health-conscious father. What happens to eight brothers and a sister that are raised under such extraordinary circumstances? "Surfwise" is the story of a man who pursued his dreams and dragged his family along for the wild ride.
