Chasing Mavericks follows the true story of Jay Moriarty, teenage surfing prodigy turned legend.
I’ve been wanting to see this film ever since it was released. I didn’t get around to it until now but it was well worth the wait. I was unfamiliar with the Jay Moriarty story going in so I was obviously blown away by it.
Jonny Weston was a perfect fit for the role of Jay, mirroring not only his amazing determination but also his kindness and positive attitude. And how can I forget about Gerard Butler? He did a brilliant job channeling the persistent, almost, “tough guy” attitude of Frosty.
I know this sounds kind of mushy but, if you want a story about doing what you love no matter what stands in your way, Chasing Mavericks is for you. A truly inspirational film you don’t want to miss.
I Give It A: B+
