Chasing Mavericks

Chasing Mavericks

An incredible true story
  • Let's hope there's no sharks today.

The Karate Kid goes surfing. Based on the true (more or less) story of surfing icon Jay Moriarty, we follow his quest to surf Northern California's most dangerous wave, and the local legend who takes him under his wing. What begins as a mentorship turns into a unique lifelong bond, as the two unlikely friends discover that there is nothing more powerful than pushing your limits and chasing a nearly impossible dream.
