We've only been in Israel for a week, but this much we have learned. There is the historic, biblical, politically tense Israel we hear about on the news. And then there is Tel Aviv. A bubble of fashion, food and fun surround by this conflicted nation.Like many metropolitan coastal cities, the local flavor is best displayed on the beach. This was illustrated by an invite from our new Israeli friends Arthur, Jango and Yanai. And to our surprise we were joined by none other than Doc Paskowitz who was in Israel working on his non-profit, Surfing 4 Peace.
This is the same beach where Doc first introduced surfing to Israel in the 50's by giving his board to the first lifegaurd who could catch a wave. Topsi was the first and is now the namesake for this beach.
