    A memorial service and paddle-out were held Saturday at Waikiki Beach for Dorian “Doc” Paskowitz, a renowned surfer who was credited with bringing the sport to Israel and who started a surfing school in California. He died in November at age 93. Moses Paskowitz released his father’s ashes as he jumped into the ocean in view of the Duke Kahanamoku statue with his sister, Navah, following him.
