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.”
See the trailer here.
“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.
Santa Cruz High’s Willie Eagleton won the pro-am division of the Volcom Youth Against the Establishment’s Totally Crustaceous Surf Tour stop at the Hook in Capitola on Nov. 25.
Eagleton got a cool $1,000 for his win in the Greatwhite event. JD Lewis took second in the same division, and Noah Wegrich took third.
In other divisions, Brogie Panesi won the juniors, Sam Coffey won the groms, Carley Wilson won the girls and Burkley Eggers won the squids. The killer move award called the Electric Volt Thrower [$100] went to Ryder Borton.
Results included in this report are from the Volcom YAE Totally Crustaceous Tour webpage. The next California event for the tour is scheduled for Seaslug, El Puerto, in Las Angeles. It will return to the Santa Cruz, at Steamer Lane, on Feb. 2, 2013.
