In Memory of ‘Doc’

On 13 Nov 2014 By Carver Skateboards


“Last night I lost my father, he died peacefully. The universe will consume all of us one day, so live like ‘Doc’ Dorian Paskowitz: follow your dreams, never compromise, be passionate and live life to the fullest!” said Abraham Paskowitz yesterday. Fifty years ago, Doc Paskowitz dropped out of society and embarked on a 14-year global surfing safari, raising nine children in a 24ft. camper van and catching every wave he could. Doc passed away at 93 on November 10th, 2014 in Newport Beach, surrounded by family. We were honored to have had the opportunity to work with him on his column as he shared his wisdom, stories, and stoke with our riders. He was, to his last days, full of the vitality that he always wrote about. Below is a series of photos chronicling some of the many adventures he had, and a link to his last posts on his philosophies on skateboarding, surfing and a life well lived.
