In 1987, an 8-year-old boy in Santa Cruz, California named Jay Moriarity is saved from drowning by his next door neighbor, surfer Frosty Hesson. This ignites his passion for the sport. One morning, Jay, now 15, sees Frosty leaving early and hitches a ride on his van. He sees Frosty and three of his friends riding a gigantic swell known as Mavericks which, with El Niño coming in, will be at its height in three months’ time.

Reluctantly, Frosty agrees to teach Jay how to surf Mavericks, but insists that he learn about the “foundation pillars of surfing”. This involves learning to paddle board 36 miles across Monterey Bay (from Santa Cruz to Monterey), treading water for 40 minutes and being able to hold his breath for four minutes. While training, Frosty encourages Jay to write essays to focus on the task. His first essay is about Kim, his crush, whose dog he saved when he was 8, which caused him to nearly drown. Jay gets closer to Kim as he trains, partially encouraged by Frosty’s wife, Brenda. A few weeks before the biggest swell of the season hits Mavericks, Brenda has a stroke and dies.
