Surfing and health

I see there's another book which has just been published which uses surfing as a metaphor when discussing health and life. It's by Dorian Paskowitz MD and whilst I haven't read it yet, there's a very positive review at SurfLine. Details of the book can be found at AlohaDoc. The author's son has made a documentary called "Surfwise" about being raised on the beach as a surfer for which a trailer can be found here.

The film was not made by a family member, but by documentary filmmaker Doug Pray. All his movies worth a look, and this one is no exception.

Absolutely check out Surfwise. I just watched it and it was worth having my ass planted on the couch for over an hour. The film challenges ideals and makes you question your own.
