This stunningly filmed drama tells the story of surfing prodigy Jay Moriarty, whose ambition was to ride one of the biggest waves ever known, known as a Maverick. Rescued from drowning as a boy by local surfer Frosty Hesson, Jay enlists the help of the older man to show him the ropes. The training is gruelling and Frosty is a hard taskmaster, but even he can't deny that Jay has natural ability as well as extraordinary daring. A thrilling and ultimately poignant tale, this not only has dazzling footage of the glamorous and dangerous sport but also a heartfelt message about living life to the full.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
