"I hit the water pretty hard," he said.
INSIDE EDITION's Steven Fabian asked, "This thing looks like an accident but you did this on purpose, why?"
Healey responded, "Well, we all knew that we had to brace for this wave. A lot of people break a lot of bones and equipment and I still had my wet suit on from surfing so I was like, 'I don't know about you boys, but I'm getting out.'"
Healey said after the wave passes, he bobbed to the surface thanks to his life vest. He was banged up, but lucky to be alive.
He added, "I actually reached the surface like Red October."
Healey is a surfer dude and part-time Hollywood stuntman, so he kind of knew what he was doing.
Hey - better surf than sorry.
