Chasing Mavericks

 

Sometimes, when we can’t get out on the waves, film (yes, specifically surfing film) is the answer to help us stay in touch with our wild sides. Whether you’re recovering from an injury, unable to take visits to suitable beaches, or simply busy for a while, there will certainly be times like this in life. and film can serve as a great retreat. This past summer I was having just such a period – kept out of the water by a couple of nagging injuries – and I found an unexpected silver lining in the much-criticized film “Chasing Mavericks,” and wanted to share it with other surfers.

 

I’ll get one thing straight right off the bat: this film is by no means a classic cinematic achievement, nor is it particularly original. If you visit rottentomatoes.com, you’ll find a slew of reviews ranging from poor to disastrous. But if you’re a fan of surfing, and you have an imaginative side, this film might appeal to you in much the same way that a mediocre sports film like “Goal! The Dream Begins” might appeal to a football fan – it’s just going to strike a note close to your heart. Again, it wasn’t a very popular film, but you can hopefully find it available before long in Picturebox Films or some similar streaming service (I mention this one in particular because they cycle their collection of available titles each month, and are adept at selecting films that appeal to certain niche audiences). Now, on to the film itself!

 

As Roger Ebert noted rather expertly (of course), “Chasing Mavericks” followed a fairly standard format for a teen coming-of-age film. The protagonist is a somewhat lost and angst-y teenage boy named Jay Moriarity (Jonny Weston) whose father has abandoned him, and whose mother is generally unhelpful. Jay was saved from drowning as a boy by neighbour Frosty Hesson (Gerard Butler), and when he later sees Hesson riding monstrous waves – “Mavericks,” gigantic swells that come about once a decade to California – he feels compelled to join in the face.

 

So it goes – Hesson becomes something of a reluctant mentor and, ultimately, father figure for the teenage Jay, who sets out to learn the “pillars of surfing” so that he can conquer Mavericks, impress a girl, and find purpose.

 

What ensues is a familiar format. The ambitious, needy teen takes on a challenge well over his head, as the mentor helps him to improve with relatively unnatural quickness. The film is loosely based on a true story, and as such it comes across quite heartfelt and, ultimately, rather tragic. But back to my point.

 

If you’re just looking for a film that makes you appreciate your own ability to surf, one that makes you remember your first experiences on the waves, or a simple, familiar picture to lose yourself in if you (like me) can’t get out on the water for a while, “Chasing Mavericks” is well worth a look!

 

GP PRESS RELEASE 2013

Greenaway Pro 2013, Ben Howard and DJ Daddy G (Massive Attack) a huge success in Cornwall.

 

With waves, weather and lots of friendly people.

 

With solid, fun waves and some of the best surfers in the country, Porthmeor beach became the battleground for The Greenaway Pro 2013 surf contest. With non-stop surfing for three days, every division was fiercely contested and notably the JR’s Rip Shreadathon displayed probably the best two hours of surfing ever to take place underneath the Tate.

The Winners:

 

OPEN – Billy Stairmaid ,

No Pro – Rowan Clifford,

Wave of the Winter – Dan Skajarowski,

Longboard – Sam Bleakley,

Women’s – Lauren Ringer

Junior – Harry De Roth

Masters – Lee Bartlett.

 

Even with such an eclectic mix of competitors, locals, family and onlookers, the spirit of kinship and community stayed true to the vibe that seems to be unique to The Greenaway Pro. Competition, but for a good cause. This was carried through all the way to the prize giving on Thursday 19th September, hosted by the Hub, where good food and music were served to help celebrate the coming together of the surfing community once again. Tom Greenaway’s parents John and Ruth presented the Prizes that included £3000 in a purse, sponsorship deals, surfboards, wetsuits, and one of the most precious trophies on the British surf scene. In their own words they “felt like they were amongst friends and that Tom would have loved it”. There was live music from touring band Winter Mountain and some beautiful words from the winners.

 

Friday Nights ‘AllAwayInGreen Film Festival and Acoustic Night’ at St Ives Cinema, was emotional and inspiring. It was a moving night with some of the most beautiful words, songs and movies enjoyed by a packed audience. Many have agreed it was nothing short of spiritual. Some of the guest speakers had come from as far as south Africa and the US. The short films included Duck Tape surfing, Birthright, and a few that have not been released yet including Hidden Lives (Story on Big wave surfer Tom Lowe). With live music from some of the most exciting up and coming names on the UK music scene Sam Fender, Rokshan and To Kill a King, the appreciative audience cared as much for the first word and melody as the last.

The Greenaway Pro is an emotional roller-coaster of high paced and competitive surfing, soft lyrical long-boarding and heart touching movies all for charity. But above all, the event is as a party to celebrate friendship and life.

 

Saturday 21st September was a night that will be remembered for many moons, possibly as the biggest musical event that has ever been seen west of Newquay. The stage, sound and structure would have looked more natural at Glastonbury and so would the line up. With Ben Howard and band becoming used to playing to at least 10,000 people, the lucky 1,500 strong crowd on Saturday night experienced something we are unlikely to see again in the near future. His sincerity and warmth came through and he spoke a lot with great appreciation of the elated crowd, during arguably one of his most epic and flawless shows to date. Following Ben Howard was Cornish / London band Brother and Bones, who like usual lifted the roof off the enormous tent when hundreds of people began singing along with the bands well know songs like ‘Hold Me Like The Sun’ and ‘Back To Shore’. Other acts that wowed the crowd were Radio 1’s Hottest Band of 2013 Catfish and the Bottlemen and the awesome To Kill a King, both newly signed and about to hit the big time. This will most certainly be one of those “I was there” gigs that will be talked about in years to come.

 

The headline DJ was Daddy G from MASSIVE ATTACK and he did what he does best, feeling the vibe of the crowd, with some of his well know tunes he really got the vibe and played a set that took The Greenaway Pro to the end of another successful year.

 

The success of the Greenaway Pro was self evident in the community spirit that brought the event to life. With an endless number of people giving their time, efforts and support this was truly what it set out to be, a community event. It has engrossed a wider spectrum of love and friendship. Each person involved, from the surfers, musicians, organizers and most importantly the festivalgoers seemed to feel this at every stage of the event. The team behind The Greenaway Pro would like to thank everyone involved for their positive energy, love and for partying for charity. Links
