Surf and barf

11:38 Dec 7 2012 Malibu, CA, USA

I came home from work and the surf was 6'. I went out at Malibu even though I was warned that the creek had opened up. I got a good wave from the top of the point to the houses near the pier. I was walking back up the beach for more and was overcome by nausea so strongly and so quickly that I had to drop to my knees and let it go. One wave and I was done. I have never gotten so sick so fast.
