i wouldn't write it off totally - maybe you have to visit another spot/figure out which wind directions work best for you. I'm based in Holbox, and it's been a great season for foiling.
When i hit seaweed its either: i fall off, if i'm prepared and see it, then i drop off the foil, or i sail straight through it. It doesnt get stuck but i'm on an Axis maroro (more race type)
I find it's tricky on or after a norte as the currents mean all the seagrass is moved around and there's plenty floating around. This season seemed to be worse around January as we had several norte's in a row.
Marco at extreme control is doing demo days at el cuyo, which is worth trying, or alternatively come to holbox and try it (the lessons start in november, we're just at the end of season. We have really easy foil conditions here!
Hope you have fun, and give me a shout if you get chance to head to holbox!
Call me lazy but I don't really wanna drive when I have the ocean right in front of me here in PA so I prefer to just kite here and with all the southeasterly winds we have here there is just too much sargassum here to start foiling, if its as problematic as the other posters describe it. I'll buy a light wind board for now and hopefully less sargassum will come in the future and I will take up foiling.
I will definitely send you a message when I come up to Holbox. The wife and I are planning to come up in a few weeks...
