The waves on Lake Superior on Jan. 5, 2022, were some of the biggest in years, and dedicated surfers took advantage. 

That includes pro surfer Ben Gravy.

Gravy, from Florida, was up on the North Shore with his board Wednesday, and managed to catch a 15-foot wave on Lake Superior. 515 Productions shared video of his impressive efforts.

Gravy, on Instagram, called it the "swell of the century in Minnesota."

The winter storm led to a gale warning that day, with waves crashing over the iconic Canal Park lighthouse, backdropped by a gray, stormy sky.
