I find that hard to believe since he had no big wave experience but it is hollywood. haha
    As far as facts go around Jay and Chasing Mavericks the best thing to do when watching the movie is to realize Hollywood added extra drama into it. Frosty was a real person who surfed Mav's back in the day and also helped train Jay. Besides that fact everything else about Frosty's character is either Hollywood glam or unconfirmed (wife passing away and such). Jay's mom did have to write a permission slip and Frosty did not believe the original note and she knew all about it. Was Jay's mom an alcoholic in real life? Unconfirmed; but not unbelievable.

    I'm also pretty sure Jay was riding Mav's before the photo shoot of his drop over the falls that landed him facetime on the magazines; but the fact of him being only 16 at the time was the key point. Back then there was no one riding those heavy waves at that age. Yes riding big pipe was probably some younger Makaha boys who rode big waves comparable and later on John John is charging pipeline at what age 8?

    Casting for Jay's wife/girlfriend was spot on if you look up current pictures or watch the behind the scene stuff on the bluray. Looks just like her.

    Good movie; but no where near the classic's North Shore and In God's Hands... hahaha. Shane Dorian acting... classic.

    I give it a B-, not the best movie in the world but certainly not the worst either. It's Hollywood so you gotta take it with a grain of salt. I think overall though it was entertaining. Did it portray Jay's life correctly? IDK, I didn't know him personally but I think they did him justice. Was Frosty a bit over dramatic, maybe, but again it's Hollywood. I think if they made the movie 100% accurate or true to life it would be boring as hell. How many surfers do you know that could hold your interest for 2hrs straight? HAHA Most dudes barely even know how to say hi good morning, let alone carry out the task of entertaining you for a full length movie.

    I thought the most difficult feat of the movie was riding on top of a van for 50 miles at 5am holding on to the ladder on the back.
