Chasing Mavericks

An incredible true story


Chasing Mavericks
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.

What the Critics say

Box Office
Amy Nicholson quote iconThis feel-good froth is distinguished from a TV movie only by the continual, expensive, pounding, astounding shots of surfers surviving McMansion-sized crests that threaten to tumble down and thrust them 40 feet into the deep.

C. Fuchs quote iconChasing Mavericks might not be a complete wipeout, but it's far away from hanging ten in any sort of awesome way.

Tomatometer quote iconIt's sweet, gentle, and affably modest, but Chasing Mavericks is ultimately pulled under by an unconvincing script and a puzzling lack of energy.
