Are you ready to see the next great inspirational surfing movie? It's called "Chasing Mavericks," and it's based on the inspirational true story of surfing legend Jay Moriarty. And although the film won't be in theaters until October, MTV is here to help whet your appetite via our exclusive debut of the trailer.

The two-minute teaser opens with an introduction to our protagonist, young surfer/dreamer Jay Moriarty, who cuts class to watch a group of skilled surfers ride the massive waves at Mavericks, a legendary surf spot in Northern California. We watch Jay observe the more experienced riders with awe, and it is clear he wants to follow in their footsteps.

"Have you ever felt like you were meant for something more? Something bigger than you?" Moriarty, played by newcomer Jonny Weston, asks in a voice-over. We see Moriarty befriend one of the seasoned pros, played by Gerard Butler, and beg him to help teach the young Moriarty how to ride the "mythological" waves. Butler's character, Frosty Hesson, is reluctant to accept the instructor role, but the youngster's fighting spirit reminds him of himself, and so the two embark on a journey that will change both of their lives.

We see bits and pieces of the classic training montage: the student's clumsy first moves and falls, the grumpy instructor's discontent. One scene shows Moriarty trying to learn to hold his breath during a class at school and he passes out mid-lecture.

The final minute of the trailer shows us a glimpse of that one huge wave that they've been training for, along with more of Moriarty's emotional journey, the ups and downs, the good, bad and ugly, all set to the appropriately inspirational/pump-you-up track "The Fighter" by the Gym Class Heroes.

"Chasing Mavericks" also stars Elisabeth Shue, Leven Rambin ("The Hunger Games") and Abigail Spencer and opens in theaters October 26.

It looks and sounds like a great movie. The shots of the ocean and the waives are so beautiful. And of course Gerry... I think this is going to be one of those roles that movie critics and everybody else will be talking about for some time. I can't wait to see it!
