OABI Detroit 2017

  • Belle Isle State Park (map)

OABI, the acronym for "Once Around Belle Isle," is the ultimate test of stamina as paddleboards, kayaks, and surfskis race around the unique and challenging 7-mile natural and non buoyed Belle Isle course through the international waters of the Detroit River. Heading into its 5th year OABI is the highlight of the year for Midwest paddlers and continues to draw attendees from around the country as Detroit boasts an exciting melding of surf culture in an unexpected urban beach setting!

Don’t paddle? OABI is a celebration of summer in Detroit and known as one of the most culturally rich events in SUP – Food trucks, craft beers, incredible bands on stage, a huge Paddlerama where people can try SUP or kayaks and a diverse vendor village. Facebook Event
