Bierke managed to keep control for a moment on the wave but wiped out after a massive explosion from behind forced him underwater.
Despite the terrifying ordeal, Bierke was able to resurface to catch a quick breath moments before the next wave forced him under again.
Luckily, he was rescued by award-winning big wave surfer Lucas 'Chumbo' Chianca from Brazil, who arrived on a jet-ski to pluck him from the water.
The terrifying wipeout happened during the biggest surf session of the season so far, on November 7, with waves exceeding 60 feet in height.
This isn't the first time Bierke has been rescued by another surfer after a wipeout.
