    Had the exact same experience from a Monday afternoon sesh. Surfed south of the reported dirty LB beaches. Throat was sore Tuesday into Thursday with usual accompanying sinus issues. Curious how many others may have gotten sick. Loads of surfers in the area that day. It did rain briefly but heavy in the early am that day. Went surfing again Wednesday morn then saw the reports of bacteria later on. It made sense at that point to me. Almost back to normal after eating well, vitamins, a little bit more rest than usuall and some punk rock this eve.

I finally went to the dermatologist today and it turns out it was all a reaction to the high bacteria levels. The worst part is that Monday's swell was small and sucky and overall not worth it.
    Sounds like another typical day at too many American ocean beaches.

    I got sick too from surfing Sunday afternoon. Sounds like we got the same thing but I didn't get bumps on my skin. Just a nasty sinus infection.

    When I checked the waves before work this week- Either Monday or Tuesday morning- there was a moco 'department of health' truck down there-I guess taking some samples?? Idk... But runoff is nothing to fool around with- unless you like car oil and dog pee in your sinuses... There is good news- you can still surf... Just use a netti pot after! I use one after surfing after a heavy rain or anytime I suspect dirty water- and I can't remember the last time I got an infection from surfing

    Don't forget about all the geese crap from these polluted lakes.My buddy surfed south of Belmar also on Monday and he had a sore throat and some lumps on his chest.Pretty gnarly stuff fellows.

    I surfed seaside and friends surfed Spring Lake and we are all fine. I think proximity to an outflow pipe is what made the difference.

    Ive gotten very sick from goose $hit. Too close to pond overflow pipes after heavy rains. Was akin to food poisoning and just as awful.
