This are the children from the seafaring Bajau Laut people (often referred as Sea Gypsies or Sea Nomads) living around small islands at the eastern coast of Sabah, Malaysia. They are using wooden boards to quickly run and slide over shallow water. It is a fun way to play in groups and challenge against each other to speed with the mini-boards that serve as surfing shortboards. The enjoyable atmosphere that includes the sunshine, the open sea and warm water adds to the excitement.
