Winner of the San Diego Christian Film Festival's Best Feature Film, 2010's Cutback tells the story of high schooler Luke Harris and his dream of becoming a professional surfer. Luke, along with his best friend, Casey, fill their time surfing and finding a party. Luke goes through the familiar conflict with his parents, who try to direct him to furthering his education, but Luke is intent on pursuing his dream.
When a rival appears on the scene to challenge Luke for a spot on the local surf team, Luke's determination increases, but then tragedy strikes and Luke is forced to make some hard choices.
Cutback delivers a strong faith-based message and does so without being "preachy." The cast of Cutback is either new or relatively unknown. Matt Beacham as Luke is an actual professional surfer.
Cutback is an entertaining, suitable-for-the-entire-family film.
