Founded by his legendary surfer father, Dorian Paskowitz, in 1972 with his wife and nine children, the Paskowitz Surf Camp runs classes each summer in California and Mexico. Welcoming and teaching surfers of all ages and levels and sharing their love of this incredible sport. The Paskowitzes, known as the first family of surfing like to say that they don't just teach people to surf---they create surfers. Over the 48 years of its existence, Paskowitz Surf Camp has introduced countless ordinary people — and plenty of famous people from the worlds of music, movies, and business to the laid-back surfing lifestyle.
For over four decades the Paskowitz Surf Camp has been teaching people how to surf. And in doing so we have given the beginner, the novice and the experienced surfer a sense of self-confidence that can only come from an exuberant interaction with nature. Our credo, Spread The Aloha is a welcome for everyone; young, middle-aged, mature, woman, man, black, white, fearful or brave, to come and experience the joy of surfing a wave. In giving everyone a chance to feel the surge of one of natures most awe-inspiring forces, the Paskowitz family is following in the beloved tradition of surfing patriarch Paskowitz, who has spread the gospel of Aloha from the shores of Oahu and Kauai to the sands of Cabo San Lucas and San Onofre.
