Once Around Belle Isle

The Motor City vibe shines at OABI (Once Around Belle Isle) each summer. In its 6th year, OABI defines Detroit surf culture. The 7 mile Belle Isle course through the international waters of the Detroit River offers stand up paddleboard (SUP), kayak and surfski racers the ultimate competitive test of stamina with the stunning Detroit skyline as the backdrop. Even those without SUP experience can give it a try in our Paddlerama classes!

OABI draws a community of people from around the country to take in the unique urban beach setting in the heart of Detroit. With amazing live music all day along with great beer, food and cool local vendors, OABI is the best of what Detroit has to offer. Everyone at OABI gets to see what Detroit surf culture is all about.
