This February 2016 will mark the BIG 40th anniversary of the Buffalo’s Surfing Classic!! Efforts are already underway for planning this legendary occasion, and we would love to have you aboard for another exciting, fun-filled surf event.

Once again we welcome any help that you are able to provide for what has become the worldʻs greatest Hawaiian cultural surfing event at Makaha Surfing Beach. Like last year, we will run 14 divisions over 5 days, ending with a massive awards ceremony February 22, 2016.

The events include 9 different types of surfing: four surfboard (10 ft and over) divisions, paipo, alai’a, bodyboard, bullyboard, canoe, SUPsquatch, tandem surfing, and team SUP surfing. Also to respect our cultural roots, we have instituted a free pass system for those who wear the ancient Hawaiian style malo while surfing in an event.

For those of you who help make the 40th Buffalo Classic a success, we will prominently display your banners on the judges stand, and run mini contests during the event to promote products. We will also list your logo on our website

We look forward to having your support at our event…!! Please contact us via e-mail or phone Bunky Bakutis at, 808-479-5925 or Juice Aguirre (sponsorship co-coordinators) 808-729-7540
