The San Diego Miata Club welcomes Miata owners and enthusiasts from all over the world to the fourth Surf 'N' Safari regional event. This four-day event on a beautiful north San Diego beach promises food, fun, and prizes. Meet old and new friends, drive excellent Miata roads, and have fun in perfect convertible weather. Each of our previous Surf 'N' Safari events have hosted many participants representing over 25 Miata clubs from the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Australia! Surf 'N' Safari 2015 is moving to a new host hotel that is located next to a gorgeous beach in northern San Diego county. We hope you had a great time and we will see you all in 2020.
