Chasing Mavericks: Leven Rambin on Surfing Secrets

by at . Comments

In Chasing Mavericks, Leven Rambin is the envy of millions of women as she was cast in the latest film starring Scottish heartthrob Gerard Butler. He portrays the real life surfing inspiration Frosty Hesson who, in the film that arrives October 26, trains a young man (played by Jonny Weston) to surf the biggest waves in the world.

For Rambin, the film continues a long line of Hollywood films that captures the essence of riding waves. We wondered… what is her favorite? “Riding Giants,” she said. “Because it has to do with Mavericks and I got to see all the guys I worked with on this film.”

The actress, a longtime surfer herself, also lets those of us who have never surfed in on why those who can't get enough of it… just adore it! “It’s nature’s rollercoaster,” she admitted. “You have to be gracious with nature and what it decides to bring you. You learn a lot about what you’re capable of.”

We met with Rambin on the beach in Santa Monica, appropriately enough, and delve deeper into Chasing Mavericks with our exclusive video interview.
