You Should Know: Jonathan Paskowitz

by Christie Grimm · March 15, 2016

We’re fairly convinced that Jonathan Paskowitz has taught everyone we know how to surf. It’s in his blood after all, catching waves since forever with his legendary family. If you haven't seen their documentary Surfwise on Netflix yet, you are SO in for a ride! Should you be one of the handful of people out there who has not happened to find yourself paddling out alongside Jonathan, no worries! Mr. Jonny Surfer will plan a custom surfari that will have you more than just hitting the longboard, but rediscovering your true self, overhauling your entire approach to living, and changing your outlook on wellness. While we don't play favorites, let's just say if we did..
