San Clemente's Surfing Heritage center to host exhibit

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 18 February, 2016 - The Surfing Heritage and Cultural Center will be hosting an exhibit on the first family of surfing, the Paskowitz Family.

Like many American outsider-adventurers, Dorian “Doc” Paskowitz set out to realize a utopian dream. Abandoning a successful medical practice, he sought self-fulfillment by taking up the nomadic life of a surfer.

But unlike other American searchers like Thoreau or Kerouac, Paskowitz took his wife and nine children along for the ride, all eleven of them living in a 24 foot camper. Together, they lived a life that would be unfathomable to most, but enviable to anyone who ever relinquished their dreams to a straight job.

The Paskowitz Family proved that America may be running out of frontiers, but it hasn’t run out of frontiersman.

Exhibit Opening Celebration, Saturday, February 20, 6-9pm
