An extraordinary journey
This fall, it takes a maverick to become a legend.
Jay Moriarity: Have you ever felt you are meant for something more, something bigger than you?
Jay Moriarity: I haven’t told this to anyone, so you have to keep it secret.
Jay Moriarity: The biggest wave in the world, Mavericks is real.
Frosty Hesson: I don’t believe in miracle.
Frosty Hesson: Fear and panic are two separate emotions. Fear’s healthy, panic’s deadly.
I want to ride that wave.
Frosty Hesson: That wave is a myth.
For a long time, people thought that the huge waves at Mavericks were just a myth.
That boy is gonna surf that wave anyway. Even if he died trying
Frosty Hesson: You gotta hold your breath for at least 4 minutes.
Frosty Hesson: What if I’m right
Frosty Hesson: This is about more than surfing, is about fighting one thing in life that set you free.
Frosty: What’s going on inside of you, Jay? What are you afraid of? You’ve got a chance to change everything. Take it. This is about more than just surfing. This is about choices you make in life. This is about finding that one thing that sets you free. You need to believe in yourself or none of this matters.
Jay: You ever see something and you think that’s the reason you are put on this earth?
Kim: What are you talking about?
Jay: The biggest wave in the world, Mavericks, it’s real.
Frosty: If you want to get out there you got to forget about the pain. A wave like Mavericks will hold you down for minutes at a time. If you can’t hold your breath for at least four minutes then you may as well not even paddle out.
Frosty: In 1987, I pulled an eight-year-old kid out of the surf. A few years later, I discovered our journey together was far from over.
Frosty: I know how good you are. I’ve seen you out there. You surf circles around those other kids. Those are normal waves. Surfing normal waves is about how you perform when everything goes right. Big wave surfing it’s a different ball game. It’s about how you perform when everything goes wrong. One bump off the face of that wave and you’re hitting the water like concrete at 50 miles per hour. Then you got a thousand tons of water coming down on top of you. It’s knocking you senseless, ripping you apart and pushing you down to a place that’s so deep and so dark that you don’t want to be there.
Jay: So why do it?
Frosty: Get out of here. I got work to do.
Jay: Train me then. Train me to ride it.
Frosty: Did you hear what I said?
Frosty (Gerard Butler) is a great mentor to Jay (Jonny Weston) in Chasing Mavericks.
Kim: Jay, why are you doing this?
Jay: Cause I’ll know that I am alive.
Jay: I want to ride that wave.
Frosty: Untrained boys don’t step into the ring against Mike Tyson.
Gerard Butler had to train in order to play surfer Frosty Hesson
Frosty: So you made it all of 30 yards. If you want to get out there, you have to make it through half a mile of this, just to get in position to Mavericks. So you’ve got to conserve all the energy you’ve got. All right, now let’s take a look at what you missed. Now for some reason, you decided to paddle straight out into that mess. Now, take a look at the rocks over there. See what’s happening with the current?
Jay: It’s got nowhere to go.
Frosty: Nowhere to go but where?
Jay: Back out
Frosty: Back out, exactly. To a waterman, it’s a conveyor belt.
Chasing Mavericks is set in beautiful Santa Cruz, California.
Brenda: That boy’s going to surf that wave anyway, even if he dies trying. I mean, wouldn’t you?
Frosty: I’m going to train you to survive cause I don’t want it on my conscience.
Frosty: How is your father?
Jay: He wrote me a letter a few years back.
Frosty: What did it say?
Jay: I don’t know. I never opened it.
