Short description

Chasing Mavericks


Jay lives in Santa Cruz with his depressed mother, who has a hard time holding down a job. One day he falls into the ocean while observing the rhythm of the waves. He is saved from drowning by a seasoned surfer named Frost, who promises to teach him the sport. Seven years, Jay secretly follows Frost to watch him surf the waves called Mavericks – the largest in the world. When he demands to be allowed to surf them too, Frost first gets angry, but his wife talks him into helping the boy. For 12 weeks, he subjects the teen to intense training, which Jay follows to the letter despite his exhaustion (in addition to college studies, he works in a pizzeria at night). The day then comes when Jay faces waves up to nine meters high...
