‘Surfwise': A California Family of Jewish Surfers?

surfwise2.jpgToday, the documentary “Surfwise” releases, a film about a family with nine children, all-raised in a 24 foot camper, hippie-commune-style, parked along the best California surfing beaches. In the New York Times review, “A Family That Surfs To a Beat: Its Own,” reviewer Manohla Dargis makes the movie sound worth seeing.
Perhaps most interesting of all, though (aside from the squishing a family of nine into a 24 foot camper for their entire childhoods), is that Dad and head surfer, Dorian Paskowitz, somehow managed to make this camper into a Jewish household. His two main, fatherly goals seemed to involve raising all the kids both Jewish and surfwise (so to speak).


The kids’ names: David, Jonathan, Abraham, Israel, Moses, Adam, Salvador Daniel, Navah and Joshua. Paskowitz also claims to have introduced surfing to Israel.
