Chasing Mavericks Blu-ray Review & Giveaway (3 winners)

Chasing Mavericks is the inspirational true story of real life surfing phenom Jay Moriarity (played by newcomer Jonny 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 on film. Enjoy this inspirational story of surfing legend Jay Moriarty and his quest to conquer the now famous Mavericks wave.

I have to say I really enjoyed this movie. Gerald Butler never seems to let me down. Not only is he good to look at on the eyes, but he is a fantastic actor and this movie just gave his fans even more confirmation.

This was such an inspiring movie that had me filled with tons of emotions. I laughed, I cried, I never took my eyes off of the screen. I was that invested in this movie. It even had me looking up the real surfer, Jay Moriarity, which the movie is based on. 

I'm not a huge surfer fan, but I do respect the sport and the people who dedicate their life towards it. If you're looking for a movie about true friendship and following your dreams this is definitely something you need to see.
