    Happened to two of my friends I went out with on Sunday. I'm feeling okay. The water was definitely booty though, I swear I saw some straight up turds.

    I've been blowing out dark yellow wads of snot, because i had to surf ocean city sunday because assateague va was closed. But it was worth it, and i thank the town of oc for letting surfers surf and opening up on sunday. 2 thumbs up.

    With the netipot, use salt and a little baking soda instead of just warm water...burns the brain but works way better than just water

    What are good foods to prevent sinus infections, I had one for so long last year and I'm getting a little cough, surfed a good break next to a running pipe and Im hearing that pipe water is contaminated like crazy..
    I'm shooting myself to ease the pain if I'm sick for the epic swell to come next week

    I caught it in monmouth county at 1:30 on monday and surfed 2 hours quitting after the wind went onshore. By the time i was home a hour later felt really sick. Lots of green mucus, fever later that night and by wednesday a awful cold. Doctor looked at my throat and said it was wrecked but no strep--- Almost certain the water was the cause- it was brown and frothy and looked and smelled like septic run off.

    I had a serious sinus infection last year where my upper back jaw just straight up throbbed. It took 2 coarses of antibiotics to crush it. They also prescribed me prednisone, that turned me into superman, as i didnt' need to sleep anymore, felt like an animal, and food tasted great!
