I flip flopped all weekend trying to decide if it was worth the risk or not to get out will all amoebas and paramecium floating in the water due to runoff from the rains this weekend. I ultimately chose not to roll the dice and stayed dry. My sinuses didn't get the memo for some reason and chose to act like I'd sucked a gallon of Ballona Creek up my nostrils. So with waves on tap, morning light and a depleted risk of contracting MRSA from the sea, I'm sitting here with a full-blown sinus infection. Hell if I know where it came from, but, my absence from the water continues as I type this.
My guess is that I'll be all healed up by the weekend just in time to paddle out in to 9ft beachbreak after sitting idle for practically a month.
