A bitchin' love letter to sand and sea, and a spirited inside account of life with the "first family" of American surfingIn 1956, Dorian "Doc" Paskowitz stepped away from a successful medical practice and began a lifelong surfingodyssey that grew to include his wife Juliette, and their nine children. Together, the Paskowitz clan lived a vagabonding bohemian existence, eschewing material possessions in favor of intangible riches like health and good cheer. . . all the while careening along the world's coastlines in search of the perfect wave.In Scratching the Horizon, Izzy Paskowitz looks back at his unusual upbringing, and his lifelong passion for the sport that carries his family's stamp. As the fourth-oldest child in a family of inveterate surfers, rock stars, and beach bums, he is uniquely qualified to shine a light on a childhood that has come to symbolize the surfing credo, a reckless young adulthood that nearly cost him his sanity, and a maturing sense of self and purpose that allows him to lift others on the back of his experience.As the father of a son with autismand the founder of "Surfers Healing," a foundation devoted to expanding the horizons of children with autism through surfing,Paskowitz has found a way to connect the surreal aspects of his childhood to the harsh realities of adulthood, and he shares these discoveries in this wickedly entertaining and transforming memoir.
