Synopsis In the 50s, Dorian Paskowitz left his lucrative career as a doctor to indulge in his three passions: surf, sex and an alternative lifestyle. He became a legendary surfer, had nine children and his alternative lifestyle consisted of getting his numerous family in a caravan and travel around the world catching waves. The Paskowitz children grew up, some became surfing champions, some made a name for themselves as musicians, the rest got lost along the way. None of them were ready to live in the real world: "Swimming with sharks was not dangerous, but going to school was".
