When 15 year old Jay Moriarity discovers that the mythic Mavericks surf break, one of the biggest waves on Earth, exists just miles from his Santa Cruz home, he enlists the help of local legend Frosty Hesson to train him to survive it. As Jay and Frosty embark on their quest to do the impossible, they form a unique friendship that transforms their lives, and their quest to tame Mavericks becomes about far more than surfing.
Drama - While this surfing drama tells an inspiring true story appropriate
for the whole family and most especially teens, it does have a fairly
downbeat ending. That said, this is clean viewing that most parents
will have no issues with, with no language and minimal violence.
Gerard Butler fans will be pleased as he does have a large role
though the actual lead in the film is young newcomer Jonny Weston.
PROFANITY: None. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Hard falls/waves; some fighting. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some implied alcohol. ACTION: Some skateboarding and lots of surfing. COMEDY: Some comic lines and kid humor.
