Santa Cruz surfer and filmmaker Kyle Buthman’s third installment in the Get Rad series, “Get Rad 3,” is scheduled to premiere at the Rio Theatre at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 22.
Buthman’s “Get Rad” films use comedy to break the traditional surf-film mold, while highlighting local talent at area breaks. Nat Young, Austin Smith-Ford, Noi Kaulukukui, Darshan Gooch, Noah Wegrich, Kyle Thierman, Bud Frietas, Adam Replogle, Shaun Burns, Miles Clanton and Nic H’dez all show off their surfing — and also some stellar acting as they perform short skits — in “Get Rad 3.”
“I’m really stoked to make another episode of the ‘Get Rad’ series,” Buthman said in a press release. “I wasn’t sure if we were going to pull it off this year, but it all came together.”
Tickets are $8 at the door, which opens at 6:30 p.m. Children 8 and under are free.
