Hollywood makes inspirational waves with the story of real-life surfing hero Jay Moriarity who, as a fearless 15-year-old, set out to conquer the biggest, baddest breakers of them all: California's mighty 'Mavericks'. Newcomer Jonny Weston makes an earnest and engaging Jay while Gerard Butler provides sure-footed support as Frosty, the Santa Cruz surf king who becomes his father figure, friend and mentor. The boys have as many personal challenges to deal with as natural ones, but directors Curtis Hanson and Michael Apted pool their experience to keep the balance between action and drama.
