The seafaring virtuoso who plays the violin while surfing colossal waves

One professional violinist is serenading the sea from his surfboard.
And one violinist is making a pretty big splash with his daring performances.
Nuno Santos has started practising his instrument while simultaneously pursuing his other great life passion... surfing.
“I’ve been into both since I was five years old,” he said.
Santos continued: “This is an endeavour that requires the best of me in all levels, hence it’s something that helps knowing myself as a person.”
As much as Santos enjoys hitting the waves, this particular performance was part of an extreme art project the musician had undertaken.
Other quirky locations the violinist has performed in include the edge of an active volcano in Ecuador, and in the Amazon rainforest.
