BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA (WFTV) – Brown algae is washing up on Cocoa Beach and swimmers and surfers are getting coated with it.
Locals say it’s worse than it’s been in a long time.
It’s visible in the surf, and Richard Widmyer was covered in it when he walked out of the water.
“This just from playing out here in the little bit of minimum surf that’s coming in from the tropical depression that just passed us. It’s pretty nasty,” said Widmyer.
Even though a lot of beachgoers called it disgusting, it’s not keeping people out of the water.
