Sore throat after Surfing waikiki

14:10 Jan 3 2018 Waikiki, Honolulu, Honolulu County, Hawaii, 96815, United States of America

I got a severe sore throat after surfing waikiki... I went after the biggest rainfall ever, so I am assuming that sewage had spilled into the water.

Got really bad sore throat (already 7 days) and started antibiotics today. The doctor's question when he examined my throat was: "Were you exposed to something?"
