Chasing Mavericks turned out to be a surprisingly-solid surfing movie directed by noted directors Curtis Hanson and Michael Apted. Telling a fictionalized rendition of the life of legendary surfer Jay Moriarty, played by fresh-faced Jonny Weston, the film chronicles Jay's life as the product of a broken home, bullying schoolmates and romantic rejection. His escape from the troubles of life is surfing, and he idolizes local legend Frosty Hesson (Gerard Butler), whom he considers one of the best. Frosty is always up for a challenge in the waves, and he is part of a crew that regularly surfs Mavericks, huge waves meant for experts only. Jay is insistent on riding one, and while Frosty doesn't approve of the 16 year-old to take such a risk, he agrees to do so because he know that Jay would try even without his consent. As Jay trains to take on the massive wave, he learns a lot about himself, and the effect his life has on others.
