Sick after surfing Topanga State Beach

10:17 Feb 28 2015 Topanga State Beach, CA

I surfed Topanga State Beach 2 days after a rainfall and I got sick. I had stomach sickness, earache and headache. I felt sick for 2.5 days. My symptoms included an all around feeling of not being well. It is very clear to me that the unclean water was the cause of the sickness.
