This was such an amazing movie , the waves were massive and so beautiful , the story inspirational , and the cast was perfect . I was thoroughly invested in all of the characters (it got emotional!!) , definitely one of the best movies I've seen in awhile . Hands down best surf movie ever made!!!

"Chasing Mavericks" Is Very Well Done - A Must-See

We enjoyed "Chasing Mavericks" very much and highly recommend it. Good acting (love everything that Gerard Butler does!), Jonny Weston - actually all actors and actresses did a superb job! The surfing was exciting and the Mavericks were awesome! Thanks, all, for a very entertaining movie about an young man who lived largely.

Surf's Up

I went to see this movie for Gerard Butler and I got him and much, much more. I know Butler is the big draw and he nailed his role as surfing mentor, Frosty Hessen. The pleasant surprise for me was newcomer Jonny Weston as surfing legend, Jay Moriarity. The photography was nothing short of spectacular and added to the telling of this amazing story of two people who found themselves in each other. And, yes, I laughed and cried and loved. Great movie!

Jay must have been an incredible young man! My son was born in Santa Cruz in '83, and my ex-husband lives there still, and used to surf there. I called him to tell him he should go see this on the big screen, and he informed me he used to work with Kim's dad and knew her even as a baby. Small world! I suggest any and everyone go see this movie. I'm not an expert reviewer, but suffice it to say that the movie is just totally awesome! Excellent footage, and a good example for young people... Jay is a superb role model. I wish I had know him back then, in some small way. BLESS YOU JAY!!!
