Vomiting multiple times after surfing at Moonstone beach

21:35 Dec 11 2022 Moonstone Beach, westhaven-moonstone CA 95570

Paddled out Camels Rock in 15 foot waves. Water was brown after excessively heavy rains the last two days. Definitely drank a lot of seawater accidentally on the paddle out. Was sitting out there about 45 minutes when I began to feel nauseous. Began heading in. On my walk back to the car vomited on side of road. Vomiting again on the highway. Vomiting again at home. The Eel river at moonstone beach was dark brown, darker than I’ve ever seen it. Suspect lots of agricultural run off.
