OK, so now that we have established that Bneteraseddmynam has manly feet and thus doesn't get blisters on them, and therefore has nothing to contribute to the thread other than..."na na na boo boo, I don't get blisters!!", we can move on.

Some of them do. I used to see them out there collecting sea urchins which some eat(not me!). When I would go surfing they were always out on the sea wall waiting for the tide to go out, walking all over the broken coral and rocks next to the sea wall! They had some gnarly feet too!!
And we wouldn't step on those same areas without boots on!

I grew up surfing in the tropics.
During college my daily routine had me running barefoot across hot asphalt for a warmup,
skittering down a cat-**** infested, nearly vertical volcanic trail for the "spices" and tenderizing,
brining in the ocean for hours with occasional reef-scrapings and tube-worm core-samplings to ensure said brine penetrated,
and finally returning to climb Mt Kittikaka in an exhausted state only to have to limp along the now blazing asphalt back to the sanctuary of my vehicle.
My feet eventually became bricks of hardened callouses;
i had to use a pad sander (200 grit!) to fit into dress shoes.
So what was this thread... Oh yeah..
**** that ****, kickboxing AND grappling ripped that **** right off.
It tore off right down to the meat and it hurt like hell.
I had to start fresh with each one.

Ha! Pretty awesome! Yeah I don't know too many surfers who haven't had to brave some weirdness over the years! Changing clothes in the parking lot, running over asphalt, nipple rash, and all kinds of others!!
