Chasing Mavericks Presented by FOX 2000 PICTURES AND WALDEN MEDIA is the inspirational true story of surfing phenom Jay Moriarity. When 15 year old Jay discovers that the mythic Mavericks surf break, one of the biggest waves on Earth, exists just miles from his Santa Cruz home, he enlists the help of local legend Frosty Hesson to train him to survive it. As Jay and Frosty embark on their quest to do the impossible, they form a unique friendship that transforms their lives, and their quest to tame Mavericks becomes about far more than surfing.
Chasing Mavericks was made with the help of some of the biggest names in the surfing world, and features some of the most mind-blowing wave footage ever captured on film.
TransWorld SURF will also be featuring an interview with some of the cast in the upcoming December 2012 issue, so be sure to grab a copy to get a more in-depth story into the life of Jay Moriarity.
