It's with deep sadness we report the death of Dorian "Doc" Paskowitz. Doc had been sick the past few weeks, and while there were reports that he passed away a few weeks ago, he held on … until yesterday. He passed through to the other side and the world of surfing has truly lost an amazing human being. Longtime friend PT summed up the many sides of Doc, noting that he was "a surfing legend, healthy-living advocate, doctor, diplomat, U.S. Navy veteran, businessman, writer and author, lifeguard, philosopher, husband, father and grandfather." So true. Doc was so many things to so many different people. Truly an amazing man. We will dedicate the next issue of Ghetto Juice to the life of Doc. For all he did for the world of surfing, it's the least we could do. Stay tuned for info on his paddle out, as this will be the biggest paddle out the world has ever seen!

DOC REMEMBERED BY KREE BROWN
Years ago, I watched the documentary called, SURFWISE and was captivated by the true story of a Doctor named 'Doc' Dorian Paskowitz, who was an avid surfer…. It was more than a hobby or a passion. He breathed it. It was the fuel for getting him out of bed each day. So he took himself off the grid, so to speak, and took the path less chosen. He quit practicing life on society's terms. He met the love of his life, the woman who stole his heart, Juliette Paskowitz, and they raised their nine children, living in a camper on the beach. They've been called "the first family of surfing." The story blew my mind. I had to meet them. So I attended a benefit for Doc about a year ago and we took a few pictures together. He told me I smelled lovely. Our picture ended up in the newspaper and I was so honored! His son, Joshua Ben Paskowitz, is an amazing artist who made a portrait of his dad and put it on a T-shirt for sale. I bought one and Doc signed it. This amazing man just made his transition to Heaven. Sending so much love to the entire Paskowitz family today, and always."
