Chasing Mavericks Movie Night Was a Big Hit
By special permission from Fox Studios, Lynn Adams and the Pacifica Beach Coalition presented “Chasing Mavericks”, a surf movie about Santa Cruz surfing icon, Jay Moriarity and Frosty Hesson, his mentor. It was a sold out evening at the Mildred Owen Concert Hall, Sanchez Center, Pacifica last Saturday night.
One of the film’s producers lead a panel of Mavericks surfing stars along with Frosty Hesson, including current Mavericks Big Wave Contest champ, Grant “Twiggy” Baker, 2012 Mavericks winner Peter Mel, Mavericks founder Jeff Clark and Mavericks veteran contestant and film maker, Grant Washburn. All either surfed Mavericks as extras or played a role in the filming of the movie. We were entertained by their anecdotes around the adventure that went into the making of “Chasing Mavericks”.
Frosty Hesson talked about the philosophy of “Live Like Jay”. It was a thoroughly enjoyable night to remember.
Our president, Greg Cochran, played a large role in organizing this event including initiating Frosty’s and the Mavericks surfing principles’ participation. PPSC helped in the raising of over $5K for this year’s Pacifica Beach Coalition Earth Day event, happening on April 26th. Go PPSC!
A special shout out to Mavsurfer’s Frank Quirarte. Thanks for helping pull this together. Your love for the ocean and our community is very much appreciated!
