Storyline Heading
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.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
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.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good 'Chasing Mavericks' is made with more care and intelligence than many another film starting with its template might have been.

USA Today Full Review
Average Ultimately the story of Jay Moriarity, who died tragically in a diving accident at 22, is a moving one, and he deserved a better tribute than this film...
