The Ocean's Energy Meets The Land's Seafloor.

A solid ground swell emerges and targets a coastline, charging at it with full potential and power. Once this mass of water has reached a shallow enough depth to break, it can do thousands of magical things. Like a snowflake, every wave is different. This particular wave happens to have an uneven and shallow rock shelf underneath it, coming out of extreme deep waters and within a matter of seconds being only inches over reef. This shallow and uneven surface causes mutations and strange curvatures in the wave's face, and is an ever-changing entertainment source for us humans to observe in awe.
