An inspirational true story of transformative friendship and incredible surfing!
In 1987, legendary surfer Frosty Hesson (Gerard Butler) rescues a young boy from the sea. He little suspects that this is the start of an odyssey that will bind them together. By the age of 15, Jay Moriarty (Jonny Weston) has become obsessed with just one thing: surfing. When he learns that the massive Mavericks surf break exists just a few miles from his Santa Cruz home, he resolves to tame it. Fearing that Jay will be crushed to death without proper training, Frosty takes the boy under his wing. With just 12 weeks to prepare, they embark on an intense and rigorous regime while forming a life-changing bond. Featuring some of the most astonishing wave footage ever captured on film, 'Chasing Mavericks' casts charismatic newcomer Jonny Weston opposite Gerard Butler. James Bond director Michael Apted shares the directing credit with Curtis Hanson.
