Surfwise

I’ve been trying to distract myself from the extreme winter weather of late by checking out some of our documentaries on surfing (White Wash, Riding Giants). Maybe it’s the beautiful landscape of the Hawaiian coast or the vibrant blue of the ocean wafting above the earth’s surface that appeals to me as we grind through a cold, grey winter.

Surfwise is an excellent documentary film that will appeal to anyone interested in exploring the question: What is a meaningful life and what does it look like in practice? Surfwise is the portrait of a man (Dorian Doc Paskowitz) with a vision of the world that found it’s life-long manifestation in the rejection of social conventions and modern values. It’s also a film about family dynamics and the conflict between one man’s inflexible idealism and the resentment and problems it later produced for his nine children.
