On March 12th and 13th, 2016 I was windsurfing at kanaha beach on the north shore of Maui. At 2am on the 14th I was woken up with sudden flu like symptoms. Still continuing to have symptoms after 4 days.
Has been raining on and off on Maui days prior to this. The water was not as clear as normal.

Today is April 7 2016 and I too was kiteboarding Kanaha Beach North shore Hawaii. Less than 4 hours after injesting a tad bit of Salt Water I became ill as all hell. My stomach is out of whack and I feel like I have food poisoning. I know it's not food poisoning. Rain has been on and off the past few days. Your symptoms and mine are identical...
