Pro surfer Mark Healey took on a massive set of waves off Mexico’s Puerto Escondido last weekend, riding a part of the “Mexican Pipeline” in conditions that only a handful of expert surfers would dare attempt.

Healey, 31, of Hawaii, is a professional surfer who competes worldwide, according to the Scottish Daily Record. On Sunday, he was at Puerto Escondido, Mexico, as massive waves assailed the shoreline. Generated by a southern storm, the waves were so large that only the most experienced of surfers could hope to successfully ride them.

Healey had flown to Mexico from Hawaii specifically to greet the results of the storm. As Grind TV notes, the waves were so large and powerful that when they struck land, the beach shook underfoot. While attempting to ride the waves, Healey decided to wear a vest that inflates after wipeouts, assisting surfers in reaching the surface quicker. According to him, it was a crucial decision that likely saved his life.
