Surfers Healing seeks to enhance the lives of kids with special needs, specifically those with autism.

It is with heavy hearts we inform you that on November 10, 2014, Dorian "Doc" Paskowitz passed away peacefully at the age of 93. HIs final days were spent filled with love and surrounded by family.

He lived a long and full life filled with love, humor, generosity, and sincerity. In honor of Doc remember to celebrate life, follow your dreams, never compromise, be passionate!

Live Life to the Fullest! Surf more!

And stay away from refined sugar!

Aloha Doc



Through the transformative experience of surfing, Surfers Healing attains greater mainstream acceptance for both the families of and the kids living with autism.People seem to have a lot of pre-conceived ideas about what kids with autism can or can't do. We're here to change those notions forever. Surfers Healing has spent the last fifteen years taking children with autism surfing. Our goal is to help foster the understanding and acceptance of autism.

With the help of incredible volunteers and a team of the most amazing surfers in the water, Surfers Healing is making a difference in the lives of families and kids living with autism. Last year we took out over 4,500 kids. Next year we plan to take out even more. Our Mission, with your help, is to keep our camps completely FREE. In 2014, we plan to add a program to sponsor families who are unable to afford the trip to a Surfers Healing camp.
