A riveting account of the life of Dorian "Doc" Paskowitz. Surfer, drop-out and sex guru, Paskowitz chose to give up on conventional life in the 1960s, instead taking his family on a journey around America's top surfing locations, living life according to how he felt it should be lived. Decades later, his choices have split his family, with only a few of his nine children continuing his pursuit of an alternative lifestyle. The rest have not spoken to him in years, until they were re-united for this documentary. The result is a moving account of one family's implosion and a colourful history of the surfing scene in the US.
