Scratching the Horizon
by Izzy Paskowitz, Daniel Paisner
A bitchin’ love letter to sand and sea, and a spirited inside account of life with the “first family” of American surfing
In 1956, Dorian “Doc” Paskowitz stepped away from a successful medical practice and began a lifelong surfing odyssey 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 autism and 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.

Surfing Life Waves
by Bradley Craig Hook
We are surrounded by waves: from light, sound, electrical and micro waves through to the quantum waves that underpin our reality.
Amidst all this wave activity it’s easy to draw a comparison between the physical waves we know so well and the experiential waves – or opportunities – that colour our existence. Waves of opportunity for happiness, success, love, failure, adventure and a spectrum of enriching experiences swirl constantly around us.
The approach of the surfer – arguably the world’s foremost experts in waves – provides a metaphor for embracing your life waves with passion, commitment, detachment, flow and fun.
There are waves breaking everywhere. How you choose to find and ride them is up to you.

The History of Surfing

House Inside the Waves
by Richard Taylor
Writer, surfer, and househusband Richard Taylor is mad about beaches and islands, and was inspired by a house exchange that whisked him and his family from a freezing Ottawa winter to a year of some of the world’s best surf on the east coast of Australia. In an era of packaged paradises and cyber surfers, the forty-something writer’s first case of the mid-life blues seduced him into recapturing his youthful romance with surfing.
