Very formulamatic movie, but "based" a true story. Since it's a movie, you can only hope it was faithful to real life. Otherwise, it was entertaining, in a Hollywood inspirational way, very Disney-esque. I agree with previous comments, good to see with your kids or grandkids.

This is actually a great family movie. It is a wonderful story about a boy, who despite, negative peer pressure and a troubled family life, remains positive, virtuous, and driven to achieve his dream. He is providentially rescued by a man who becomes his mentor and a worthy father figure. This true story is full of human drama. HIghly recommend.

Mavericks is a surfing location in Northern California, USA.
It is located approximately 2 miles (3.2 km) from shore outside Pillar Point Harbor, just north of the town of Half Moon Bay
at the village of Princeton-by-the-Sea.
After a strong winter storm in the northern Pacific Ocean, waves can routinely crest at over 25 feet (7.6 m) and top out at over 80 feet (24 m).
The break is caused by an unusually shaped underwater rock formation.
Mavericks is a winter destination for some of the world's best big wave surfers.
Very few riders become big wave surfers.
Only a select few are willing to risk the hazardous, sometimes deadly, conditions at Mavericks.
An invitation-only contest is held there most winters, when the waves come.
Seven years after his historic ride, Jay drowned while free diving in the Maldives.
He was 22 yers old.
It is a really inspirational and thought-provoking docu-drama you would certainly love from the bottom of your heart.

This is a very inspiring movie.

Jay seemed like one of the few souls who was always kind. May he rest in peace. It is a really great story about him showing that with passion and endurance even with adversity, you can accomlish your dreams.

Based on the short life of Jay Moriarty, a young surfer. For an action actor such as Gerald Butler, his performance was well done.
