Santa Cruz filmmaker Kyle Buthman is getting ready to drop the next installation in his Get Rad surf film series. “Get Rad 3” brings back an all-star cast of local professional surfers, including Nat Young, Austin Smith-Ford, Noi Kaulukukui, Darshan Gooch, Noah Wegrich, Kyle Thiermann, Bud Freitas, Adam Replogle, Shaun Burns, Miles Clanton and young super-shredder Nic H’Dez.
The movie will premiere December 22nd at The Rio Theatre and it has already receivied plenty of local hype and anticipation by local surfers. Buthman released the trailer for the film last month on YouTube where it has gained almost 2,000 views.
“I’m really stoked to make another episode of the ‘Get Rad’ series,” Buthman said. “I wasn’t sure if we were going to pull it off this year, but it all came together.”
“Get Rad 3” brings comedy alongside high-performance surfing. True to the series’ formula, each featured surfer introduces his surf section with a short skit.
In this version, the adventure continues when Buthman leaves his trusty black lab, Charley, with a couple of groms. Distracted by two of the most beautiful girls in town, the groms almost immediately lose Charley.
The groms’ frantic search for the missing dog takes them across town, where they meet a bunch of classic characters — the featured surfers indisguise — along the way.
Not to give too much away, but the surfers’ cameos offer laugh-out-loud moments for everyone as the film lightly pokes fun at many classic Santa Cruz stereotypes.
