Seaweed surfer?

“I [have] never seen anything like this in my life . . . the moss was thick like carpet,” said veteran surfer Zed Layson after he encountered a blanket of sargassum seaweed while surfing just off Silver Sands, Christ Church yesterday. “The moss came in and it was spectacular,” he told Barbados TODAY. “I caught and […]
