There is a new movie coming to theaters on October 26th, and I am really excited about it! It is called Chasing Mavericks, a surfer story but with so much more.
CHASING MAVERICKS is the inspirational true story of surfing phenom Jay Moriarity (newcomer Jonny Weston). When 15 year old Jay discovers that the mythic Mavericks surf break, one of the biggest waves on Earth, is near his Santa Cruz home, he enlists the help of local legend Frosty Hesson (Gerard Butler) 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 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.
Part of the reason I am so excited about the Chasing Mavericks movie (because Gerard Butler!), is that the Mavericks is fairly close to my home! When my husband and I took a trip to Half Moon Bay a couple of years ago, we visited and talked about how fun it would be to witness the fun for ourselves. In the meantime at least, we can see the movie when it opens.

Chasing Mavericks will be in theaters October 26th, and is rated PG, so make sure you take the whole family!
