Chasing MavericksAre you a fan of surfing?  How about Gerard Butler?  Maybe you like to watch inspirational stories?  If so, then you’ll want to check out the newly released movie, Chasing MavericksChasing Mavericks was released on Blu-ray and DVD by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment on February 26, 2013 and can be purchased in stores or online.  The Blu-ray retails for $29.99 and the DVD retails for $22.98.


Chasing Mavericks is the inspirational true story of real life surfing phenom Jay Moriarity (played by newcomer Johnny Weston).  When 15 year old Jay discovers that the mythic Mavericks surf break, one of the biggest waves on Earth, is not only real, but exists just miles from his Santa Cruz home, he enlists the help of local legend Frosty Hesson (played by Gerard Butler) to train him to survive it.  As Jay and Frosty embark on their quest to accomplish the impossible, they form a unique friendship that transforms both 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 real wave footage ever captured in the film.
