“What a great insight into the wild and crazy ride that has been the life so far of Israel- a good and kind man who has carved out a beautiful, meaningful niche in the world of surfing by offering up all he knows to help others." --Sarah McLachlan, Grammy Award-Winning Singer
“Izzy's story is of man's archetypal yearning for freedom, told from the heart of a surfer who has lived his dreams.” --Flea, The Red Hot Chili Peppers
"The Paskowitz family has spent a lifetime sharing surfing with the world and looking after kids (their own and others!). I'm eternally grateful to them for almost raising my little brother through their surf camp, and now I'm grateful to Izzy for sharing his family's story in these pages. What a wild ride!"
--Kelly Slater, champion surfer and author of Pipe Dreams: A Surfer’s Journey
"I'm a fan of the Paskowitz family, on all levels, particularly the level of taking children with autism into the water. It's such an obvious, healing place for a kid to be, and if you look at the faces of these kids riding the waves you can feel and appreciate their spirit and their stoke, just coming to life. I vibe with it. I quite simply vibe with what they're doing, and now that I've ready Izzy's book I get it even more. It's such a sweet, sick, crazy life, and Izzy's set it all down and let us know his story in such a raw, honest, funny way. His book completely rocks." --Anthony Kiedis, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and author of Scar Tissue
“A true, never-ending adventure. The sort of story that inspires. The sort of message that will make you want to take a good, hard look at your own life. After all, Izzy’s story is the stuff of legends. You can’t make this shit up.”
--Eastern Surf Magazine
