HALF MOON BAY, Calif. – Breathtaking video shows the moment a whale leaped out of the water, startling a flute-playing paddle boarder in Half Moon Bay in California.

The video shows concert flutist Viviana Guzman playing her flute while out in the ocean. In the caption of the video, Guzman wrote, “I play my flute for the whales, and they come!”

Guzman told ABC News she often plays her flute while paddle boarding and almost always gets attention from the whales.

“I feel like they’re curious,” said Guzman. “I started my usual playing, and all of a sudden one came really, really close to me.”
