$25 Visa Gift Card and Chasing Mavericks Prize Pack giveaway


Chasing Mavericks,surfing movies

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.

I am really excited about the soundtrack too (available Β October 23rd digitally, and on November 19th on CD). There is fun alternative music from the 90’s, including artists such as The Lemonheads, Matthew Sweet and more.

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

  1. okay I am not going to lie – I have always had something for surfers. CanΒ΄t tell if its the suits that make them look like cute penguins, or maybe just that they use the nature force to do something really cool. So thats part one of the reasons for going to see this movie.
    A second reason is that its a true story about a guy having a dream, and a goal to be better, and do the most extreme ever – I love those movies

  2. I love movies that are based on true stories and I love the actors in this movie which is why I am excited to see it.

  3. Kathy Rambousek on

    It looks like a fun movie to watch as a family. I like that it’s not rated R – it seems as if everything else out there right now is.

  10. Well, you posted that picture of the two of them on the beach half out of their wetsuits, so do you really need to ask this question? πŸ˜‰

  11. I’m mostly interested in seeing what Gerard Butler does with his role – he’s such an unpredictable, charismatic actor!

  12. I usually read mysteries, science fiction, and history. It’s a good idea to go out of your comfort zone occasionally and read something totally different.

    It looks very good, so I want to see it for that reason and the actors in it are great.

  15. It is based on a true story and it looks intriguing. I want to know why anyone would want to surf those dangerous waves.

  16. I was out in California 2 times this year and I loved watching the surfers. I think it’s such art! This movie looks like it would have such great surfing, and a great story line
