“Chasing Mavericks” is a biographical movie which centers around the true story of how 16 year old surfer Jay Moriarity attempts to brave the 25 foot plus high waves of Maverick’s at Pillar Point Harbor, in Northern California. In order to do so, he’ll need to get coaching from a neighbor who actually surfs the spot. Along the way, the two form a familial-strength bond.
“Mavericks” gets a bit out of its depth, trying to cover dramatic material from the characters’ lives, but it’s not a total wipeout. There’s plenty of incredible surfing, and a decent portrait of the undeniable drive that motivates extreme athletes.
