After being knocked down by 15-foot crashing waves at Mavericks, a northern California surf destination known for story high waves, Gerard Butler is doing a-okay.

The 42 year-old Of Mavericks and Men star was filming on location when the monster waves headed toward shore. The Huffington Post points out a safety patrolman on a jet ski came to the rescue!
Although Gerard was taken by ambulance to Stanford Medical Center for examination, he was released shortly thereafter. The movie's about a surfer who actually conquered Mavericks as a teenager but ended up perishing in a diving accident ten years ago.
