‘Surfwise’ (Doug Pray, 2007)
Dorian “Doc” Paskowitz and his long-suffering wife raised their nine children in a mobile home parked in front of the best break in the lower 48. This documentary gets off to a charming and funny start – the 85-year-old Paskowitz is smart and foulmouthed, with charisma to burn – then veers into some dark, complicated places. ‘Surfwise‘ is an impeccably crafted ode to the bonds and burdens of family, and to the danger of giving in completely to obsession.
