Gerard Butler plays Rick "FROSTY" Henson in Of Men and Mavericks Movie

How exciting... Gerard Butler has been seen on local beaches and dines at local establishments!  Pretty exciting stuff for a town this size!  The break known as MAVERICK'S is located half a mile off the coast of Pillar Point in Half Moon Bay, California - Right next door to Pacifica, California (my hometown!). Filming has begun and this little city is finally getting in on some of the action.
Of Men and Maverick's (tentative name) is a surf movie that will tell the real life story of Jay Moriarty, the Santa Cruz surfing icon that tragically passed away in a diving accident, when he was only 22 years old.  HOT Gerard Butler will play the role of surfer Rick "Frosty" Henson, Moriarity’s mentor while adorable JONNY WESTON lands the lead role of Jay himself!  The surf movie will be directed Curtis Hanson, the man behind "L.A. Confidential" and "8 Mile".
"Mavericks" is the ultimate surfing biopic. Jay Moriarty was a great surfer and had a short but still fulfilled life by the sea and riding waves. Today, he is remembered every year when the big wave surf contest "The Jay at Mavericks" kicks off at Half Moon Bay.  We are keeping posted on the movies progress and will be sure to post any new sitings or updates of Gerard, Jonny and the rest of the Crew while here in PTown!
