Just got hit...pain was pretty intense..kept surfing and I knew that the water was actually numbing it and possibly infecting it further..1hr later I exited the water and that is when the real pain began. Hobbled back to the truck.. punture wound in bottom big toe and was bleeding pretty good.

BZ I will never get my revenge..and now I am hesitant about stepping down at all. This is another reason why none of you should ever surf, boogieboard or swim in California.

Best to stay off the beaches entirely, imo.

"how do you know it was a sting ray? just out of ignorant curiosity" Bo$$, You just know..I have heard alot of stories from friends that got hit..I have stepped on them many times but narrowly avoided getting attacked. It feels like a flate slippery fish under you and hopefully you can lift your foot quick enough or when they strike they miss you completely. Its a defense mechanism for them when you step on them. Today I felt the squiggly and then the jab and then the pain and swelling..kept surfing and got out and then the pain REALLY started. They don't really start showing up until Summer..they love flat sand bottom beaches. My foot went from pretty antogonizing and swollen to nothing now after a dip in steaming hot water to clean and get the poison out. It's not the barb that causes the pain it's the poison.

lol.. pretty much exactly what my toe looked like. Yeah it was throbbing like a bitch 25 minutes of hot water and it's absolutely fine. I don't think it got me as bad as it wanted to. How did you get hit on your hand? First real hot day of the season and blammo I get hit..I hope this won't be a trend for me this summer.

I seen lots of them in Mexico. Some of them had a wingspan of about 6 feet. On that note, if you catch a stingray fillet the wings and fry them, good eating.

I was out fishing/drinking w/ some friends...got the stingray to shore, thought it would be easier to take the hook out than to cut the line and put a new hook/bait on. While holding it w/ my left hand, I tried to take the hook out w/ my right then the damn thing curled up and drove its stinger right into my hand... My hand stayed swollen for about a week. Put peroxide or something on it...from what i was told, anytype of cut/bite from something in the water can get infected easily. lol, haven't been fishing since...
