Paddleboarder Starts Filming. When He Turns The Corner, He Catches Floating Man Playing Guitar

Jess grew up in Oklahoma before moving to New York to become a writer. She has a cat named Agnes.

Like anyone who lives in a big city, I can count on seeing my share of street buskers performing music or other entertaining routines, hoping to earn a few bucks.

The talented men in the video below, however, chose a much different venue for their busking efforts. Instead of playing their instruments on a busy sidewalk, they carefully stand on paddleboards on a body of water in Ireland.

Their beautiful melody was captured by Francois Colussi, who owns a nearby water sports business, and he promptly shared the musical discovery on his social media. He keeps mum about exactly where the individuals were located while replying in the comments — likely not wanting to spoil the surprise for others!

I can’t imagine how much concentration it takes for the musicians to remain upright on their paddleboards while holding a guitar and accordion. I’m so clumsy, I’m sure the instruments would end up ruined by the water in a heartbeat!

Francois interrupts briefly while recording them to express how thankful he is to have stumbled upon them, saying, “Life is pure magic.”

Have you ever seen any unique routines in unexpected places like this unusual paddleboard performance? I’m just so glad Francois had his camera on him to capture the whole thing.

Let us know in the comments, and be sure to SHARE the incredible clip with your friends and family!
