Today, the price I paid to go on a kayaking trip in the sea was nothing compared to the price that my foot paid when it inadvertently stepped on a sea urchin halfway into the water. FML

Sea urchins- the Legos of the ocean.

As a child, I accidentally stepped on a sea urchin in a shallow tide pool at the beach. Then I "accidentally" picked up a nearby stick and proceeded to turn the urchin into a sand dollar ...

Ouch. Didn't sea that coming. Hope you feel better soon OP and that you were still able to Kayak!

Hm. Is it like stepping on a chestnut?

i'm so sorry that happened. your safety is definitely more important than that kayaking trip, though.

That's just nasty actually

well you know what they say, "step on a sea urchin, pee on your feet for it"

That's for jellyfish stings if I recall correctly ...

Urine cleans the wound, basic knowledge when traveling.

Urine is in fact sterile (at least when it's freshly squeezed, so to speak), but it definitely doesn't have any cleaning or antibiotic properties.

Aside from just being liquid, I mean. Warm water would do the same job without going R. Kelly on your ass.

Sue that sea urchin

piss on it. easy cure

That sounds very painful but for future reference you should always wear water shoes when there are urchins in the water, as a precaution. I hope you managed to have some fun after you got your foot taken care of!

Why are you not wearing water shoes, I don't know anyone that kayaks in their bare feet? Then again I've only known two people who kayak so...

I must be an outsider then, I haven't worn water shoes yet when kayaking.
