Surfers united: no more oil drilling, please (Photo:

The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico will affect thousands of surfers, kitesurfers, windsurfers and bodyboarders, from Louisiana to Florida, in the USA.

The environmental catastrophe will likely hit the northern coasts of the Gulf of Mexico in the next days. This will make surfing impossible for a long time in the southern US coastal areas.

All surfers are called to help in the beach cleanup. Make sure to wear all the skin and lung protection like impermeable gloves and respirators with vapor cartridges.

US President, Barack Obama, said BP is going to pay for this environmental damage caused by the Deepwater Horizon rig.

The Gulf of Mexico oil spill might take months to be defeated.
