Fever, abdominal cramping from water at Baldwin Beach

18:53 Dec 5 2022 Kahului

Over the weekend, I was kitesurfing out at the break called the slab off of baby beach/Baldwin beach. My kite went down in the waves and I probably drank a bit of water struggling. Finally released my kite, had lost my board and swam in. I had abdominal cramping that evening and fever came on soon after.
