Making Mavericks: The Memoir of a Surfing Legend tells the story of the friendship between Richard “Frosty” Hesson and Jay Moriarity. The two first met when Frosty was approached by a young Jay in 1990 as the skinny kid with a sparkle in his eye wanted his help in becoming a better surfer. Hesson, surfing northern California since the early 1960s and was one of the first to conquer the huge waves near Half Moon Bay known as Mavericks, recognized that the kid “had a vision”.
Jay quickly demonstrated a resolve that reminded Frosty of his younger self, pursuing his goal with a seriousness far beyond his years and becoming the youngest person to surf Mavericks at age 15, even younger than Jeff Clark who at age 17 pioneered Mavericks and surfed there alone for twelve (12+) plus years until he convinced others to ride the massive waves. Jay's attitude and work ethic earned Frosty’s respect and, eventually, his friendship. Making Mavericks: The Memoir of a Surfing Legend is the inspiring story of their father-son like bond and of the challenges that made each of them who they were—surf legends, and their relationship the subject of the film Chasing Mavericks.
