OABI says
OABI - prounounced ō-‘äb-ē

OABI, the acronym for "Once Around Belle Isle," is the ultimate test of stamina as paddleboards, kayaks, and surfskis race around the 7-mile natural and non buoyed Belle Isle course through the international waters of the Detroit River. What started as an underground race in 2012 has quickly turned into an annual Midwest paddle destination, drawing recreational and professional competitors from around the country and boasts an exciting melding of surf culture in an unexpected urban beach setting.

The newbie friendly Paddlerama program features instruction and demos for beginners, intermediates, and experienced paddlers. Previous classes have included Intro to SUP, SUP Yoga, Paddle technique, SUP Racing, and on-land fitness training. 2016 will showcase more intimate classes with more specialized instruction from some of the Midwest’s best and most talented paddlers.

Don’t paddle? OABI is a celebration of summer in Detroit - drinking craft beers and cocktails on the beach, listening to live music, dining on the tastiest food trucks, shopping a diverse lineup of lifestyle vendors and enjoying the majestic beauty of a Michigan summer day in the shadows of the Detroit skyline.
